Read a summary by Steve Revilak >> 

The articles are:

  • Article 45 - Increase the Percentage of Affordable Housing Units
  • Article 41 - Definition of Foundation
  • Article 38 - Energy Efficient Homes on Nonconforming Lots
  • Article 43 - Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
  • Article 42 - Affordable Housing on Privately Owned Parcels of Non-Conforming Size

(Rachel Zsembery, ARB Chair) Ms. Zsembery says that 17 of this years warrant articles are related to housing. She notes that the ARB had previously committed to a more comprehensive public engagement effort around housing. These articles vary in their approach and deserve to be vetted.
