Ridgefield Selectmen put off vote on draft Affordable Housing Plan

The Ridgefield Board of Selectmen has put off a vote on the proposed affordable housing plan, mandated by the state to be updated every few years, and will continue discussions at their meeting next month.  First Selectman Rudy Marconi asked his fellow Selectmen for any changes they feel are necessary to the plan was drafted by the Affordable Housing Committee--and approved by the town’s Planning & Zoning Commission last month.  Some of their concerns are over the number of units included in the goal, and the narrative rather than factual statements in portions of the draft.  The state included guidelines for municipalities to follow, which included having a community vision statement.  The plan was due to the state Office of Policy and Management by June.  Municipalities with less than 10 percent of its housing stock considered “affordable” are encouraged to develop more units. Affordable is defined as housing costing less than 30 percent of the income of a household earning 80 percent or less of the area’s median income.
