In advance of the upcoming May 2 community meeting, the Affordable Housing Commission (AHC) has posted a draft of its affordable housing plan for the Town of Lyme on the Town website. 

On Monday, May 2, at 7:00 p.m., on Zoom, the AHC will host a virtual community meeting to review and discuss this draft plan.  The draft may be altered to reflect the public comments received at the meeting.

All residents of Lyme are encouraged to attend the online meeting and share their responses to the draft plan.  The Zoom link for the meeting is here. The passcode to use to enter the meeting is 411561.

Under a state mandate (CGS Section 8-30j), every Connecticut municipality must prepare and adopt an affordable housing plan by June 1, 2022.  

As additional background, residents may wish to review the following information:

  • In January 2022, the AHC issued a summary on affordable housing in Lyme entitled “Status Update for Affordable Housing in Lyme: Where Have We Come From? Where are We Going?”  The report can be read by clicking on this link.
  • In November of 2021, RiverCOG published its 10-year Regional Plan of Conservation & Development – a land-use plan that is intended to inform land-use decisions made by RiverCOG, land-use commissions, town governments and state agencies; and to encourage land-use coordination across municipal boundaries.  (RiverCOG is the acronym for the Lower Connecticut River Valley Council of Governments, a council of 17 area municipalities including Lyme, that focuses on regional transportation, land use, emergency preparedness, conservation, economic development and other important issues.)To read or download a printed copy of this plan, click here.  To peruse an electronic version of the plan, visit this website.
