Recap of CHAPA's Annual Regional Meeting and Materials
September 26, 2022
Close to 250 advocates, neighbors, municipal employees, organizational representatives, and legislators working on affordable housing in their communities joined us on Thursday, September 22nd for our Annual Regional Meeting.
CHAPA staff shared information on our legislative and budget priorities, Fair Housing priorities, and updates on the Multi-family Zoning for MBTA Communities requirements. Participants then broke out into regional sub-groups to share their unique challenges and opportunities across the following regions; Greater Boston, MetroWest, Cape & Islands, South Shore, North Shore/Merrimack Valley, Central Mass/Worcester, Franklin/Hampden/Hampshire Counties, and Berkshires/Western Mass. Participants also provided feedback to CHAPA staff through an interactive polling activity which will help to shape future priorities and activities.
