Draft Housing Vision and Priorities Statement;

Housing Committee Meeting June 28th

The state's housing crunch carries significant economic risk for the 495/MetroWest region. The Housing Committee of the 495/MetroWest Partnership is leading the development of a consensus "Vision and Priorities" statement for the organization, which will establish the Partnership's vision and core beliefs on the subject of housing, as well as outline specific actions that should be taken to address the situation.

Our draft Housing Vision and Priorities statement is available for review at this link. The draft was developed by the Housing Committee's Co-Chairs, working in tandem with Partnership staff. Your feedback is sought and welcomed; the document has not yet been acted upon by the Board of Directors of the 495/MetroWest Partnership, and at this time does not represent the organization’s formal position. Your feedback will help inform the organization's position prior to ratification by the Board.

You are invited to offer comments on the draft, which you can do by completing this online form; comments may also be submitted via email to Executive Director Jason Palitsch via email at Jason@495Partnership.org. Please note that anonymous comments will not be considered.

The Housing Committee of the 495/MetroWest Partnership will meet virtually on Friday, June 28th at 9:00 AM to review and discuss the proposed draft; feedback received during the discussion will be taken under advisement. This meeting is open to any interested 495/MetroWest stakeholder; click here to register

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if the Partnership can be of any assistance to you:
