In 2016 the ad hoc Affordable Housing Committee completed its work analyzing the economic and regulatory environment affecting the quantity, quality, and affordability of housing in the City of South Portland, and recommended a total of 26 actions and policies for consideration in its final report. The recommendations are policies intended to create a balanced and adequate supply of housing for individuals and households of all incomes and age groups.
The Committee is now being given new marching orders to work on implementation of those policies and other recommendations in the report in the months ahead. The Committee will bring items to the Council as they become ready for formal action and will request additional workshops if further guidance is required.
