This is the Warrant Article as presented and passed at Special Fall Town Meeting on November 7, 2020. The warrant article contains the text of Article 17 - Affordable Housing Trust, which was added to the Town General By-Laws.
This article follows best-practice guidance from Town Counsel. In addition to accepting MGL C44 S55C to create the Trust, the Town should have a specific bylaw to properly codify any changes to the power or authority of the Trust. As we propose a level of oversight by the Board fo Selectmen that is not required by law, the addition of the bylaw is appropriate and necessary.
