FEEDBACK WANTED: Planning Board Proposes Measure To Increase Affordable Housing In Town, Wants Resident Input

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Department of Planning & Conservation, on behalf of the Planning Board, presents a draft Inclusionary Zoning Bylaw for comments prior to submitting it in February for the 2019 Annual Town Meeting.

The bylaw requires that multi-family developments of 8 units or more have 15% of the units as restricted affordable units as defined by the MA Department of Housing and Community Development to count toward the Town’s 10% affordable requirement. The draft bylaw provides an additional market rate unit for every affordable unit required to offset costs associated with building affordable units. It also allows for affordable units to be built off-site only in exceptional cases.

Additional details are included in the draft, which is posted HERE on the Department of Planning & Conservation page of the town’s website.
