Success for BrooklineCAN Agenda at Fall Town Meeting

tm3Two proposals supported by BrooklineCAN were approved by the fall Town Meeting. Susan Granoff proposed that the Board of Selectmen appoint a committee to study and recommend ways to provide stronger property tax relief for senior home owners with modest incomes. The study committee is expected to bring its recommendations to a future Town Meeting. Henry Winkelman and Ken Goldstein proposed that the Town develop a proposal for an affordable senior housing development using air rights above the Town-owned parking lot between Kent and Station Streets. This addresses a serious shortage of affordable housing for seniors.  Both Susan and Henry are members of the Livable Community Advocacy committee and both proposals were developed through their work with the committee.
