Housing Production Plan

A Housing Production Plan (HPP) is a proactive and studied means towards developing affordable housing that is in keeping with the Town's own affordable housing policies and preferences (PDF).  

The HPP is not a construction plan, but more specifically is intended to communicate to the state how Weston can address its affordable housing responsibilities. This plan contains three elements, which outlines for the state:

  • a comprehensive assessment of Weston's housing needs
  • affordable housing goals to meet the needs
  • strategies towards achieving the goals

In 2015, Weston developed its first plan, which can be found further below. The document is valid for five years and  is in the process of being updated. 

Updating the Housing Production Plan - 2021

In September of 2020, the Select Board appointed a new Housing Production Plan Steering Committee to work with a housing consultant to update Weston's HPP.  Since then, the committee has held two community input sessions and one public survey to help shape the updated plan.

The Housing Production Plan Steering Committee met with the Planning Board and the Select Board in a joint session on June 14, 2021 to present the updated HPP. The presentation and draft HPP follow:
