A real opportunity to be heard about Affordable Housing in Falmouth MA.

The Falmouth Chamber of Commerce and Barbara Schneider have organized a listening session with the residents of Precinct 4 to hear your views on affordable housing. After a brief presentation by Town of Falmouth MA Housing Coordinator Kim Fish, a conversation will be moderated to generate feedback from Precinct Four residents on views of affordable housing, how it or the lack of it is affecting residents in general, and possible solutions.

The listening session will take place at 7:00 - 8:30 pm on Thursday February 9th 2023 and will be held at the East Falmouth Elementary School cafeteria. The Falmouth Chamber of Commerce will participate solely in a listening capacity and has invited Falmouth affordable housing organizations, the planning board, and the select board to do the same so that everybody can begin to better understand the views of residents and work to improve upon this important issue.

This will be the first precinct to have one of these listening sessions, with sessions in other areas of town to follow at later dates. Any questions, feel free to reach out to Barbara Schneider at 508-331-2929. newsrm7@aol.com

Thursday February 9th 7:00 - 8:30 pm East Falmouth Elementary School cafeteria.

Thank you for the generous comment, Kara. Affordable housing is needed, is very important, and helps provide stability to community and to the services the town needs like fire police and schools.

We had another meeting last night where they disclosed some of the details of one project in discussion and planning.

Unfortunately, I fear that the meeting mentioned in this blog above was a ruse, because it did not disclose the actual intentions of the town, and instead was advertised as sort of information gathering session. Of course then, the focus was on the need for affordable housing, rather than here's where we think good locations might be. Of course there is a need for affordable housing and most reasonable people will agree with that.

However, at the meeting last night, plans were displayed and ongoing events were described with the scope of the project was formally detailed - and it is slated for a plot of land that the town bought with the understanding that it would not be developed. The minutes were read of the meeting when the land was voted to be purchased by the town. It is clearly stated in those town wide discussions that there should be no development of that property and that it should be protected from such.

Affordable housing is needed, is very important, and helps provide stability to the town and to the services the town needs like fire police and schools. Unfortunately they have spent a lot of time on a property where the ability to build is not probable. Poor planning, poor choosing, lots of money spent poorly, lots of time wasted - when other locations could have been good investments of those.
