Londonderry Resident Pauline Caron called for a moratorium on any future workforce housing projects “until the town takes inventory of what it has.”
“Seniors can’t find affordable housing in Londonderry and are moving out of town,” Caron told the Town Council at their Monday night meeting.
Caron said new developments that have been approved boasting price tags in the range of $300,000 “are not affordable for seniors.”
“In March 2013, the Town accepted the new Master Plan. I think the Master Plan should be reviewed and all areas should be revised in accordance with the Master Plan,” she said. “The ‘Workforce Housing Statute’ says municipalities should take inventories of work housing units available. Not only apartments, but buildings themselves for sale. It’s time Londonderry take inventory of what it has.”
