Shorts for the Housing Authority, Oct. 18

Housing lottery. Two affordable units at Laurel Hollow will be offered by lottery. Anyone who meets the income guidelines can apply. The Carlisle Housing Authority (CHA) is sending recommendations to the Board of Appeals that local preference be stipulated in conditions for future 40B comprehensive building permits. The Carlisle Housing Authority (CHA) would like affordable housing lotteries to give preference to current and former Carlisle residents; children and parents of Carlisle residents; and municipal and school, including CCHS, employees who work an average of 20 hours or more per week.

Free house offered. Bill Costello, the developer of 15 houses at Cross Street, has offered to move the existing ranch house, rather than demolish it, if Carlisle would like to use it for housing. Susan Stamps will follow up on this possibility.

Accessory Apartment Task Force. The Board of Selectmen has created a task force to develop bylaws that will govern accessory apartments. The task force includes Susan Stamps from the CHA, representatives from the Planning Board, from the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), and consultant Toby Kramer.

Coventry Woods. The proposed 56 unit development at Concord Street, will be discussed at the next CHA meeting scheduled for November 17. The CHA has been asked by the ZBA to review the developer's application with regard to the affordable units. Those interested in learning more about this 40B development are invited to attend.
