Settlement Agreement with Fair Share Housing
9 Main - Proposed Ultra High-Density 100% Very-Low, Low, and Moderate Income Housing Project
There will be no market rate units in the proposed development. 100% of the housing units would be for income-restricted residents. There will be no opportunity to integrate individuals of different income levels.
Site investigation reports have detected excessive concentrations of antimony, arsenic, beryllium, lead, mercury, and benzo(a)pyrene. The town may continue to be liable for future residents’ health issues, even if remediation occurs.
Fully segregated housing on a former dumping site will cause residents to be shunned. Because the building would be located right next to the middle school, children would be ostracized and subject to undue mental harm.
