Williamstown: Affordable Housing Committee to hold community listening sessions


The Williamstown Affordable Housing Committee has scheduled two community listening sessions on potential housing sites owned by the town.

The first, focusing on the former town garage site at 59 Water St., will be Monday, Sept. 30. The second, addressing the former Photech Mill site at 330 Cole Avenue, will be Thursday, Oct. 10.

Both sessions will be held at 7 p.m. at the Williamstown Elementary School auditorium, 115 Church St. Each session will last approximately two hours.

The purpose of the meetings is to gather input to use in seeking proposals from developers to build affordable housing on either or both properties.

The committee’s consultants, Connie Kruger and Jennifer Goldson, both professional planners and members of the American Institute of Certified Planners, will lead exercises that include digital group polling and small-group discussions. The sessions will also include a short presentation about Williamstown’s housing needs as well as site information.

Those unable to attend the information-gathering sessions may submit questions about either site to the committee at wmst.housing@gmail.com.

More information about the two sites is available at the AHC’s page on the town’s website, williamstown.ws.
