[ARCHIVED] Updated Draft Housing Production Plan is Now Available


A revised version of the Housing Production Plan (HPP) is now available. The Board of Selectmen and Planning Board will hold a follow-up joint meeting on Tuesday, May 26th.

At this meeting, the consultants will provide an overview of the revisions made to the HPP based on feedback provided during the public comment period. The Board of Selectmen and Planning Board will consider adoption of the HPP at this meeting. To view the updated plan, please click here.

The revised HPP is also available with redline changes showing public comments incorporated into the document. To view the revised HPP with redline changes, please click here.

In addition, there are two public comment tracking sheets available showing the disposition of each comment:

An approved HPP gives communities under the 10% threshold of Chapter 40B (such as Acton), but are making progress in producing affordable housing more control over comprehensive permit applications through a ‘safe harbor’ for a specified period of time, which is where we are. We have a achieved a safe harbor with our current HPP through July 2021. The HPP is valid for 5-years, and our current plan expires in August 2020.
