Smaller plan for affordable housing presented in Falls Village
FALLS VILLAGE — The Planning and Zoning Commission accepted an application from the Falls Village Housing Trust for an affordable housing development on River Road at a combination in-person meeting (at the Senior Center) and on Zoom, on Thursday, June 25.
The application contains a smaller version of a previous proposal for the site. The new plan calls for 16 units containing 29 bedrooms in five buildings. The previous version was 28 units, 50 bedrooms and eight buildings.
There are four different building types; each building has garage and driveway parking.
The plan calls for a septic system for each building and two wells.
The next step is a public hearing. The commission did not set a date for the public hearing.
The proposal will be available on the town website.
The combination of an in-person meeting (with appropriate social distancing) and the online Zoom format was not entirely successful, with echoes and feedback making it difficult to hear what anyone was saying.
