Affordable Housing Plan Workshops

Friday, 14 October 2016

Need housing? Help us prioritize the community's needs and participate in the Housing Production Planning process. Please complete this quick survey. This survey was added to the process in an attempt to include as many people in the process as possible. We can't all make the meetings, but we can all take the survey!

Please click here to take the All Island Planning Board Housing Survey

The Planning Board and Affordable Housing Committee are holding 3 public workshops this Fall to prepare an actionable housing plan that will be executed over a 5-year period of time.  Join us at the Harborview Hotel (Menemsha Room) and enjoy refreshments and light meal while we work to find solutions to the most important issue facing our town – HOUSING.

The stately white Greek Revival houses built by the whaling captains have been carefully maintained. They make the town a museum-piece community, a seaport village preserved from the early 19th century.
