Reminder: St John’s Episcopal Affordable Housing Development, Community Meeting Scheduled for Oct 23 - 6:30 PM

Several years ago, St John's was approached by a for-profit developer that wanted to purchase most of our 20 acres of woods to build single-family homes. Our mission is about serving the community, not making a profit, so we refused this proposal. And, we started to discern what is the best use of this vital asset that we have. 

We started to weigh our prime objectives: 1) To provide something that’s needed by the community, 2) To honor Creation by preserving most of the land for natural habitat, and 3) To provide needed revenue for the survival of the parish. 

I attended a Franklin Town Council meeting where I learned that the Franklin Housing Authority manages about 200 units of housing for families, individuals, seniors and disabled people. There are 1300 individuals and 2500 families on the waiting list, but only about 20 units turn over each year. So affordable housing is desperately needed in Franklin and elsewhere.

That's when St John's started exploring what it would take to offer such a gift to the community. We were introduced to  The Community Builders, a non-profit affordable housing developer, and decided to partner with them. They built and still manage Eaton Place on Veterans Memorial Drive, Franklin. We want to provide housing for people who can't afford to live in the town where they grew up. 

So this project will be for people who make less than 60% of area median income (AMI) (some units will be for 50% and even 30% of AMI, so VERY low income). It will use less than a quarter of our 20 acres, and the rest will remain wild. We plan to create walking paths to connect with DelCarte, and even some public parking, so that the community can enjoy the land. 

You are invited to an informational meeting on Sunday, October 23rd at 6:30 PM at St John's. We look forward to receiving your feedback.

Peace,

Get Internet -> Claim Your Affordable Connectivity Program Benefit

"As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, President Biden and Vice President Harris worked with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to create the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households $30 per month off their internet bills. ACP-eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers. 

To deliver maximum cost savings to families, the Biden-Harris Administration has secured commitments from 20 leading internet providers to offer ACP-eligible households a high-speed internet plan for no more than $30 per month. Eligible families who pair their ACP benefit with one of these plans can receive high-speed internet at no cost."

Annual Report Of The Municipal Affordable Housing Trust - FY 2021

Note: FY 2021 is last year (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021). The report was prepared to cover the business for the FY 2021 period. This year’s report FY 2022 (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022) is in preparation now and is normally available for distribution at the polls for the November election.

The Franklin Municipal Affordable Housing Trust fund was established on May 18, 2005 by Bylaw Amendment 05-567. The Trust Fund can receive, hold, invest or expend funds for the rehabilitation, renovation, construction, financing or refinancing of property within the Town of Franklin making these residential properties available to low and moderate income families looking for an affordable home.

The Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) establishes the Median Income for the area annually (currently $120,800). Income limits are set at 80% of the Median Income based on household size. The “Affordable” sales price for a home is set assuming a household earning 80% of the median income can obtain a mortgage.

“Affordable” homes must have a “deed rider” attached to the deed of the home. The deed rider will preserve the resale value of the home so that it will remain as affordable in perpetuity. “Affordable“ homes must be purchased by income and asset qualified households.

Having the deed rider ensures that all the affordable units will be included on the “Subsidized Housing Inventory” (SHI). The goal is to have an affordable housing inventory of at least 10%. Franklin’s SHI is at 12%. This number allows the Town leeway to support only those developments that it feels benefit the community.

In FY2020, interest rates continued to be at historic lows and the Municipal Affordable Housing Trust processed 5 refinances and re-sold 1 home.

Progress is continuing on the Franklin Ridge senior housing project to be located off of Veterans Memorial Drive and behind Eaton Place. The project will include 60 new senior apartments that will be affordable to income and asset qualified seniors. The Trust has earmarked up to $550,000 in support of this project.

This year, as always, we look forward to pursuing innovative ways to produce affordable housing in the Town of Franklin. It is our pleasure to submit this annual report for your review.

Respectfully submitted,

Chris Vericker, Chairman 
Mary Anne Bertone 
Christopher Feeley
Jamie Hellen

"In a market badly out of kilter, many older residents are stuck in their homes" - Franklin an example

"They bought their homes when they were young, making money, and raising families. Now they’re empty nesters, in or nearing retirement, and living in houses that are too big for them.

But many older residents in Massachusetts who’d like to downsize — and turn over spacious dwellings to younger buyers desperate for room to expand —are finding it difficult, if not impossible. Even though their property values have ballooned, smaller homes or condos are scarce and carry prohibitive price tags in the state’s out-of-kilter real estate market.

“We’re just sitting tight right now,” said Mary Prosnitz, 66, of Wellesley. She and her 69-year-old husband, Jay, raised two sons, now grown, in the five-bedroom home they purchased 38 years ago and still live in."

From the Mass Housing Project Datatown, we find the data on the types of housing in Franklin compared to the Commonwealth of MA average.

The importance of housing diversity
A wide variety of housing types enables people of different means and at different stages of life to have viable housing options within a community. Different housing types allow for greater density in places where it is most appropriate, such as near transit and commercial, retail and business centers.

Looking at the adjacent comparison between the mix of housing types in your community and Massachusetts as a whole, do you think your community is achieving the kind of diversity that fosters a wide variety of choices? Does your mix of housing structure types foster inclusion or exclusion? Are you making the most of the land available for development?

While a wide variety of housing is required, Franklin is heavily single family home oriented

What is 40b? Why is Town of Franklin proposing a "Friendly 40b" Process?

From Mass Housing - https://www.masshousing.com/programs-outreach/planning-programs/40b 


Chapter 40B, the Commonwealth's regional planning law, promotes responsible housing growth by creating a streamlined permitting process for eligible projects that utilize subsidized financing, and that meaningfully accommodate lower-income residents.

Since its passage in 1969, Chapter 40B has supported almost all affordable housing construction in Massachusetts outside of the Commonwealth's largest cities. Approximately 70,000 total units have been produced under Chapter 40B, of which over 35,000 units are restricted to households making less than 80% of the area median income (AMI).

Chapter 40B promotes regional planning solutions and new housing consistent with local and regional planning needs. The law balances the regional need for affordable housing development with local public health, public safety, design, and environmental welfare needs.

The statute allows eligible affordable housing developments to receive a comprehensive permit, even when projects require waivers of local zoning. In cities and towns that achieve certain affordable housing production goals, zoning boards of appeal may reject 40B proposals without facing an appeal from the developer, giving those communities great discretion over 40B development. Municipalities that have not achieved minimum affordable housing production thresholds have a more limited ability to reject 40B proposals.

The Town of Franklin is currently over the 10% minimum affordable housing and wants to stay that way, hence they are proposing a “friendly 40b’ process to help foster affordable housing growth.

"a housing market with no slack can’t absorb shocks like a pandemic-driven frenzy"

"Massachusetts needs another 108,000 housing units to meet the demand, according to a new national study, which ranks Massachusetts 11th among states in its housing underproduction.

Up for Growth, a Washington, DC-based housing nonprofit whose members include housing developers and economic development organizations, released a report Thursday that examines housing underproduction nationwide.

The problem is national. The New York Times highlighted the report’s finding that housing underproduction is no longer a coastal phenomenon but is spreading across middle America."

Community Preservation Act funding scheduled for Town Council approval - June 22

Why is there a Community Preservation Committee meeting scheduled for the same time and place as the Town Council meeting on Wednesday, June 22?

The Town Council is scheduled for a discussion and approval for the initial budget for how the CPA funds available will be spent. Per Open Meeting Law, in order to allow the Community Preservation Committee members to be present, there needs to be a formal agenda announced in advance.

While it is not a requirement to have all the CPC members present, it would be good to see as many as possible in support of this historic occasion. The CPC and Town staff did all the hard work to get to this point of approval. The Town Council is limited to a yes or no vote.

"Housing Supply Action Plan is a step in the right direction"

Via Ed Cafasso

"The Biden Administration’s Housing Supply Action Plan is an important step toward increasing the affordable housing supply, especially changes to the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program and to HUD financing. Can it get done in mid-term election season?"

https://twitter.com/edcafasso/status/1526999699248529411 

"Multifamily and financing industry officials said President Joe Biden’s newly released 13-page Housing Supply Action Plan is a step in the right direction to increase the affordable housing supply but questioned how much could be accomplished—particularly changes to the popular Low Income Housing Tax Credit program—without legislative action this year as the mid-term election season heats up."

Rezoning downtown for economic growth & diverse housing
by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 05/15/2022

There is a  public meeting scheduled for Monday, 6:30 PM at THE BLACK BOX.

Franklin For All is a community-driven process to establish a vision for Franklin Center, including the Downtown Commercial District and adjacent neighborhoods, and make rezoning recommendations to best achieve the vision. This will unlock development to expand housing choices, support local business, take advantage of new infrastructure, and foster a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood. There will be multiple engagement opportunities for the public to weigh in on their vision for Franklin Center and the proposed approach to rezoning.

The Project’s Timeline

Fall 2021 = Project start-up and analysis of existing zoning 
Winter 2021-2022 = Public engagement to set a vision for Franklin Center 
Winter/Spring 2022 = Context analysis and development scenarios 
Spring/Summer 2022 = Public engagement to review zoning recommendations 
Summer/Fall 2022 = Rezoning Franklin Center

Franklin enjoys a compact downtown with an MBTA Commuter Rail Station, a museum, a performing arts theater, Dean College, and a mix of restaurants and retailers. There are also events throughout the year, including the Strawberry Stroll and the Harvest Festival, that draw large crowds to the area. Significant time and resources have been devoted to enhancing the area with a focus on improving traffic flow, safety and emergency response time, improving roadways, fostering a pedestrian environment, improving the overall appearance, and stimulating private sector investment.

Franklin For All seeks to build on Franklin Center’s existing assets and become a vibrant, mixed-use destination. More people living in a walkable downtown means more spending at local shops, fewer car trips and less greenhouse gas emissions, and more interactions amongst residents, fostering a stronger sense of community. Through rezoning, we can remove restrictions that hold back quality projects to encourage development that directly meets a shared vision for Franklin Center.
