Ridgefield Selectmen approve Affordable Housing Plan

An affordable housing plan has been approved by the Ridgefield Board of Selectmen to send to the state.  All municipalities were required to send updated plans to the state by June, though many did not meet that deadline.  The vote in Ridgefield was 3 to 2.  The 33 page document was drafted by an Affordable Housing Committee and previously approved by the Planning & Zoning Commission.  The plan calls for a review of multi-family opportunities through zoning regulations, developing additional assisted affordable housing units, promoting adaptive reuse of old buildings, and creating transit-oriented development. Affordable housing is defined as costing less than 30 percent of the income of a household earning 80 percent or less of the area’s median income.
