The Affordable Housing Task Force has released its final 21-page report in preparation for a vote on Thursday, Jan. 24.
The report proposes 44 different recommendations for how the city and the Board of Alders can best address New Haven’s affordable housing crisis.
The housing panel, which the Board of Alders created in March 2018 after a public debate about the conversion of the Hotel Duncan and the loss of Single Room Occupancy (SRO) dwellings downtown, convened six public meetings between June 2018 and January 2019.
At the most recent meeting, the group previewed some of the recommendations detailed in the final report, which the body will vote on on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 6 p.m. in the Aldermanic Chambers on the second floor of City Hall before delivering the report to the Board of Alders to review and draft legislation around.
