The Valley Breeze: High Rocks, town reach agreement on affordable units
NORTH SMITHFIELD - One year after the town demanded answers from the developers of the High Rocks Condominiums as to why promised affordable units were never built, the two sides have reached an agreement on a path forward for the building.
Last Thursday, Feb. 6, the Planning Board approved a plan to add 38 residential units to an area of the building once used as commercial space. Eighteen of the 38 units will be designated as affordable, meeting a requirement that at least 10 percent of the units in the housing complex are affordable.
The plan replaced a previous proposal to add a standalone, 14-unit building on the property to comply with the affordable housing requirement.
