Affordable Housing

Housing presents some challenges as the Boston area has some of the highest housing costs in the nation. State and local governments have worked to ease the burden for as many persons as funds and voter attitudes allow. The committee and UUCM members generally support these programs and we have worked to increase local understanding.

 

In particular, a Meetinghouse Lecture event in June, 2021, explained the legal terminology and history in Marblehead of efforts to improve the availability of "affordable" housing. The presenters have made their material available and we make them available to you, here.
