Small Town Housing Work Group

July 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Our July 27, 2023 meeting will be in-person in downtown Turners Falls!

The Town of Montague just received a Housing Hero award from the Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP) as a small town that has made progress on several housing initiatives.  On 7/27, we will meet at the Montague town hall, go on a short walking tour (about a ½-mile) where in just a few blocks we can see housing that was developed with support from the Attorney General’s Neighborhood Renewal program, single family houses built by Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity, senior and worker housing managed by two different local housing authorities, and the site of the first 40R (Smart Growth) overlay district in Franklin County.  We’ll finish up at the Rendezvous where we can network about housing and socialize.

The meeting will start at 5:30 PM on Thursday July 27, 2023.  It will wrap up at 7:30 or later if people care to linger.

PLEASE RSVP by July 26 HERE — we would very much like to have a sense of numbers for planning purposes.  Additional details will be sent out to those who RSVP.

The Small Town Housing Working Group is made up of municipal leaders and local housing advocates who gather bi-monthly to learn together, network, develop strategies, and share updates about housing-related work in the region. FRCOG staff support is funded by the Massachusetts Community Health and Healthy Aging Funds as part of the Improving Housing to Improve Health Project. https://frcog.org/boards-committees/small-town-housing-workgroup/
