The Mt. Washington Valley Housing Coalition has drafted a proposed change to Conway’s zoning ordinance designed to create more affordable housing in the valley. The new ordinance would allow developers to build on smaller lots in exchange for dedicating some units to affordable housing. Lot sizes would start with at least a quarter-acre for the first housing unit and 5,000 square feet for additional units on the same lot — half the current regulation sizes, as long as developers set aside up to 25 percent of those units (either houses or apartments) for people with a household income of under $55,000 for buyers or $41,000 for renters.
This week’s Tele-Talk question: Would you support a zoning change that allowed smaller lot sizes in Conway, if that means more affordable housing would be created?
