Diverse housing? Affordable to all? Committee hosts meeting June 13

The Ridgefield Affordable Housing Committee, dormant since 2014, is planning to be reconstituted. An informational meeting for prospective members will be held at the town hall on Wednesday, June 13, at 7 p.m. It will take place in the large conference room on the lower level, accessible through the Bailey Avenue entrance.

The Affordable Housing Committee was formed by the Board of Selectmen in 1995, and its work helped lead to Sunrise Cottage, The Meadows on Prospect Ridge, revised accessory apartment laws and more. While all seats on the committee are currently vacant, it was never officially disbanded.

Former committee Chair Dave Goldenberg will lead the informational meeting.

“The town’s own plans call for promoting a diverse housing stock, but the market alone will not provide it.” Goldenberg said. “There are many things we can do to address the growing need, and we’re looking forward to getting back into gear.”
