Northampton projects that would increase housing, address affordability gain traction


The Northampton planning board moved along several housing projects which may help address affordability and increased demand in the city.

The projects discussed on Thursday night ranged from the creation of a two family home on Evergreen Rd. in Leeds to a 30-unit affordable housing project behind City Hall.

Director of Planning and Sustainability, Carolyn Misch, said the city has been working on finding opportunities to support housing projects, especially the creation of affordable units.
