Hopkinton Reaches Affordable Housing Threshold

 

April 24, 2005—According to correspondence from the Commonwealth Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), Hopkinton has exceeded its threshold of 10% of affordable housing stock with the approval of the Hopkinton Mews, a 280 unit housing project approved for Lumber Street to be built by Mill Creek. If a town has less than 10% of its housing stock deemed affordable as defined by Mass General Law Chapter 40B, then a developer need not comply with local bylaws, but only apply for a Comprehensive Permit from the local Board of Appeals with approval from the state. The Mill Creek project is such a project, but its approval for inclusion in Hopkinton's Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI) brings  the town's affordable housing stock to 14.15% according the DHCD, thwarting any such future 40B projects.

         What this means  for developers is that they will need to comply with local bylaws, which do not allow for such dense developments that are buildable under the Comprehensive Permit guidelines. The projects will need to go through the normal planning and permitting process.

          Hopkinton Mews has been called a "friendly"  40B project, because the land owner, Paul Mastroianni has negotiated with the town in a Host Community Agreement, which will offer benefits and mitigation for traffic impact and road widening.

Caregivers, Parents, Loved Ones, and Anyone Who Wants to Learn More About Autism
             

 

  Summer can be an especially dangerous time for those with Autism as they are often attracted to bodies of water.  Drowning is the number one cause of premature death for individuals with Autism.

Police officers are often called to a home to assist a caregiver with locating an Autistic person who has wandered.  We recognize that caregivers of loved ones with Autism have a huge responsibility.  It is our hope that this event will provide valuable safety information to loved ones.  We also believe this event will be a great opportunity for our officers to receive additional information from caregivers about

● Specially trained search and rescue police officers, station tour, and emergency vehicles on scene
● Officers will be distributing Autism safety items to include tip sheets, and identification cards
● Caregivers will be able to develop a 911 “script” with the assistance of search and rescue police officers
● Bounce House, light refreshments & more.
