MBTS Needs More Family Affordable Housing


To the Editor,

Building affordable housing in Manchester is a big project, but we also think that it is obvious that something needs to be done.

We are three students in the Eighth grade at Manchester-Essex Middle School, and we can see the impacts of less affordable housing in our neighborhoods.  Additions to affordable housing would benefit everybody and help increase diversity.  Currently, there are only four family affordable housing units in Manchester.  Comparably, a similar town like Wenham has more than double that number.

The town needs to develop more units for families.  If you sign the petition to bring the topic to the next town meeting, we can create more affordable housing units for families in Manchester.
