The Town of Sudbury is updating its Housing Production Plan (HPP) and is seeking an At Large member for the Housing Production Plan Working Group (HPPWG).

Sudbury has long been a desirable residential community because of its natural areas and open spaces, the town’s living history, its strong public school system, exceptional volunteerism, and its small-town feel and sense of community. These attractions, as well as the scarcity of available open land, have made Sudbury housing difficult for many to afford. High land prices contribute to ever-increasing housing costs, which make the town unaffordable to those who desire to move into the community, while an increasing tax burden makes it unaffordable for those who currently reside in town.

The Town of Sudbury has worked to address these issues with the hope of preserving economic and social diversity, along with creating a more diverse housing stock to promote a greater variety of housing options. Sudbury has committed to supporting and creating affordable housing solutions which respect the historic and natural character of the community. The Town is also increasingly aware of the need to consider smart growth opportunities and environmentally sustainable solutions in all of its projects.

In order to ensure the amazing qualities of Sudbury are here to stay, and to continue to provide residents of the community with quality and affordable housing, the Town needs to update its Housing Production Plan which was last completed in 2016.

The Housing Production Plan Working Group will assist the consultants and Planning & Community Development Department in this endeavor to update the plan. The HPPWG will include this At Large member as well as one (1) member from each of the following Town boards, committees, and commissions:

  • Commission on Disability
  • Council on Aging
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee
  • Housing Trust
  • Planning Board
  • Select Board
  • Sudbury Housing Authority
  • Zoning Board of Appeals

We anticipate this commitment to include approximately six (6) meetings during 2023 with a few additional public outreach meetings/forums.

All interested residents are welcome to submit a Volunteer Application, especially those with a background or interest in housing. The At Large member is required to be appointed by the Select Board. Volunteer Applications are due by 4:00 PM on Monday, April 24, 2023 to the Planning & Community Development Department.
