HRA Work Plan for 2019-2020

The Housing & Redevelopment Authority (HRA) to review and discuss priorities for 2019-2020 Work Plan.

On February 19, 2019, the HRA held a retreat meeting in the conference room at the Fairfield Inn. Staff provided an overview of the Affordable Housing Priority outlined in the Northfield Strategic Plan. The Affordable Housing Strategic Priority contains 3 Desired Outcomes which includes:
* Grow & Maintain Affordable Housing
* More Senior Units
* Expanded Supportive & Emergency Housing

Four large sheets of paper, each with a different Desired Outcome as the page heading, served as holders for board member ideas. The Desired Outcome, "Grow & Maintain Affordable Housing" became two separate headings. Board members wrote possible strategic initiatives ideas for each of the four Desired Outcomes on large post-it notes and placed them under the corresponding headings. Staff read each of the post-its aloud and, with input from board members, wrote out each idea on a corresponding large sheet of paper.

2019-2020 Work Plan Ideas from HRA Board members are as follows:
Create New Housing Opportunity (Growth)
Develop remaining HRA land at Southbridge
Incentives to attract developers
Create Housing Trust Fund
Consider DPA Fund for Manufactured Homes
Work with EDA to purchase former DOT site
Work with CAC to develop Manger Inn site
