Newport Daily News: Middletown council continues search for senior affordable housing plan

Nearly 290 respondents to a recent survey reported they did not have enough money for rent/mortgage/real estate taxes at some point during the last 12 months.

MIDDLETOWN — Town Council President Robert Sylvia has asked town staff for an update on how the town will achieve its long-sought goal of creating municipal affordable senior housing units.

Sylvia included an agenda item for the Feb. 4 council meeting seeking an update from Town Administrator Shawn Brown. The panel voted to continue the matter to its next meeting this coming Tuesday because Sylvia was absent from the Feb. 4 meeting.

In his memo to the council, Sylvia asked to “discuss what current options are available and possibly decide on a direction to move forward to honor our commitment to our seniors.”
