Affordable Housing

What We Do

The Committee shall work with the Housing Authority of the Town of New Canaan and other Town bodies to increase the number of affordable housing units in New Canaan and to maintain local control of housing development.   To achieve these purposes the Committee shall recommend a plan to maintain successive moratoria under subsection (l) of section 8-30g of Connecticut General Statutes.

The Affordable Housing Committee shall develop scenarios under which moratoria under section 8-30g(l) could be achieved and shall measure public support for each scenario.  Each scenario shall address the type of projects involved, whether they would utilize Town property or require land acquisition, the projected costs of development and maintenance of each project, the impact on infrastructure, the likely sources of funding and the impact on taxpayers.
