Affordable Housing Plan

The Town of Southbury completed work on an Affordable Housing Plan (AHP) as mandated by the State of Connecticut. The AHP was officially adopted on May 24, 2022 by the Planning Commission. Portions of this plan will be included in the Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD), however the Affordable Housing Plan is a stand-alone document. View the press release.

The process of creating the AHP was overseen by the Planning Commission, the staff of the Land Use Department and Cheshire-based consulting firm, SLR International Corporation.
