Affordable Housing Plan

The updated Draft Colebrook Housing Affordability Plan is now available for review. Click here to review the full updated DRAFT plan.

The original draft plan was available for review and the committee solicited comments. As a result of comments received, one revision was made to the original draft plan. The strategy that was on p. 19 that referenced collaboration with the Colebrook Land Conservancy was removed. This strategy seemed like it might cause confusion and it was removed for greater clarity.

The new plan is posted, available for your review and comment. The plan is also available for review in the Town Clerk’s Office.

The Colebrook Housing Plan Steering Committee wants to hear if Colebrook Residents support the DRAFT plan’s goals before it goes to the Board of Selectmen for adoption. Please take 5 minutes to take the online survey and give us your feedback today!

Colebrook has beautiful open spaces and a rural small-town quality of life. The Affordable Housing Plan seeks to protect these aspects that we love about our town while also, in a strategic and focused way, working locally to meet our residents’ housing needs over the next five years.

The goals of this plan are:

  1. Form a non-profit (501c3) Colebrook Housing Organization
  2. Expand housing options for seniors
  3. Keep residents living safely and affordably in their homes
  4. Support first-time home buyer options
