Medfield to host information session on affordable housing units

A public information session on affordable housing opportunities at the Cushman House at 67 North St. in Medfield will be held Monday, Dec. 4, at 6 p.m. at Town Hall. The project is a renovation and expansion of an existing property into eight one- and two-bedroom rental housing units, two of which will be affordable to moderate-income tenants at below-market rents of $1,452 per month for a one-bedroom and $1,611 for a two-bedroom. Applicants who currently live in Medfield, who work for the town or a Medfield business, or whose children attend Medfield schools can qualify for local preference on the units. At the Dec. 4 information session, interested parties can obtain an application and ask questions about the development, the units, the eligibility criteria and the lottery. Applications are due Jan. 3, 2018, at noon. For more information, visit the town’s website at www.town.medfield.net.
