THINKING HOUSING NEEDS IN ROWLEY?
In 2017, the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission (MVPC) was awarded funds from the Commonwealth Community Compact Cabinet and MassHousing programs to develop the first Regional Housing Plan for the Merrimack Valley. The goal for the plan is to develop a strategy for meeting the housing needs of today and tomorrow’s residents in the region. Using current data, populations projections, and state-of-the-art mapping, the Merrimack Valley will work collaboratively with each of the 15 communities in the Merrimack Valley region, which includes the Town of Rowley, in order to understand their specific housing needs, that will allow the each community to set goals, and to craft appropriate, tailored strategies that address their specific needs over the next five years. The result of these community meeting will be a Regional Housing Plan, with chapters that serve as a Housing Production Plan for each of Merrimack Valley’s communities.
MVPC has developed a three-tiered process to develop the Merrimack Valley Regional Housing Plan: Public Engagement, Align with Existing Planning Efforts, and Information Gathering. Each of these steps will help to ensure that this plan is comprehensive, inclusive, and respectful of existing local, regional and state-wide planning efforts.
