At the May 2018 Special Town Meeting, Brewster designated 16+ acres of town owned land for Community Housing purposes. The parcel is located on the west side of Millstone Road near Agassiz Street. The Town also received a grant from Mass Housing Partnership for a pre-development feasibility study. Since October, the Brewster Affordable Housing Trust has held three sequential community engagement sessions to discuss potential community housing opportunities for the property and gain input from residents.
As part of the feasibility study, Bohler Engineering prepared three conceptual sketches which envision possible housing configurations on the property. Continuing the community outreach process, the Trust is offering an online Conceptual Sketch Survey (link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/MillstoneRoadHousing) for residents to share their preferences and thoughts. This feedback will help inform the plan for the property. The survey will be available online until Wednesday May 20th. Information from the community engagement sessions is available on the Housing Office webpage: www.brewster-ma.gov/departments-mainmenu-26/housing-office. For any questions, please contact Jill Scalise, Brewster Housing Coordinator, at 508-896-3701, ext. 1169 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
