Housing for Who?

FRAMINGHAM

The two-year-long fight over affordable housing in town continues tonight at the Board of Selectmen’s meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Memorial Building.

The agenda includes possible rescinding of the town’s controversial housing policy, which suggested that Framingham's 10 percent inventory of affordable housing should be increased to 30 to 40 percent to better match local need.

Soon after the policy's adoption in 2004, Town Meeting passed a resolution calling on selectmen to quash it, but they never did so.

Now, a more conservative board will wrangle with the issue.
