I am the Chairman of the Housing Needs & Assessment Committee for the Town of Belchertown. Currently, we are working cooperatively with Habitat for Humanity to locate parcels of land that are suitable for Affordable Housing purposes.
Even though two particular properties were voted against by the Board of Selectmen, we are still continuing to push for this purpose for the need of the growing community. We are working with the Pioneer Valley Chapter out of Florence, Massachusetts.
Their website is http://www.pioneervalleyhabitat.org, and you will find any information regarding the application process.
