Letter: Williamstown board failed on housing

Posted

To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Our recent resignations from the Williamstown Affordable Housing Committee, after a combined 30 years of service, were made with deep regret. The Selectmen’s April 15 vote not to follow the unanimous recommendation of the AHC to make full use of both town-owned sites for affordable housing, as called for in the RFP the Selectmen themselves sent out, was a decision we could not support. That vote, and other actions taken and not taken by the Selectmen, prompted our resignations.

We hope that in the future, our Selectmen will show more resolve in addressing Williamstown’s housing inequities.
