Westfield Talks Affordable Housing Monday at Noon

Westfield's mayor is seeking questions for a talk she will host on affordable housing.

Mayor Shelley Brindle announced she will host the forum at noon on Monday, June 7, where Town Planner Donald Sammet and Town Administrator Jim Gildea will discuss the topic.

“We will talk about affordable housing — what it means for Westfield and the current status of our obligations,” Brindle said. “We will provide background and context for the apartment complexes that are appearing in Westfield and surrounding communities.”

The forum follows the town council’s introduction of a measure last week establishing payment in lieu of taxes for the developer of a 193-unit project on the border of Garwood, which would include 32 court-mandated units for low- and moderate-income households.

The forum is among a series of online events the mayor has hosted from the town’s Facebook page in recent months on various topics, including community policingredevelopment and retail.

Brindle said officials will discuss “how we are committed to meeting our court-mandated obligations in a way that works best for the community.”
