Warrant Articles Supported by BrooklineCAN

townmeetingThe fall Town Meeting agenda includes two warrant articles that stem from the work of our Livable Community Advocacy Committee. Submitted by Susan Granoff, Article 33 calls for the creation of a committee to study new property-tax relief options for low-and-moderate income senior homeowners. Susan is particularly interested in a local circuit breaker program that has been adopted by Sudbury that provides relief for some senior homeowners who do not qualify for the state circuit breaker program. Article 34 submitted by Henry Winkelman, calls for planning of an affordable senior housing development using air rights above the Town-owned parking lot between Kent and Station Streets in Brookline Village. The Livable Community Advocacy Committee supports both proposals and asks that BrooklineCAN members contact their Town Meeting members to urge favorable action on both proposals.
