We want to hear what you think the town's housing needs are. We are working on a plan to address the housing needs of current and future residents and workers in our town as required by State statute. This Housing Plan will lay out strategies that the town can take over the next five years to address these housing needs while still protecting the qualities we love about our town. 

There will be multiple opportunities for input from residents during the housing plan development process including at least two community wide forums we plan to host in 2022. Thank you in advance for taking this survey to give us your feedback! Please one survey response per household.
