Valley Breeze: Officials considering incentives on affordable housing
Nearly 800 residential units now being proposed citywide
PAWTUCKET - Finalizing local rules on affordable housing will take plenty of creative thinking, say those doing the legwork.
City Councilor Terry Mercer, who heads up the ordinance subcommittee and ad hoc economic development and neighborhood improvement committee, which are meeting together to discuss affordable housing requirements, said the joint committee is “nowhere near” ready to finalize a proposal.
On the table are potential incentives to compensate developers for creating more affordable housing, said Mercer.
