People of Alton need to pay attention to workforce housing issue

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

On September 4th we attended the Zoning Amendment Committee meeting at the Town Hall and the subject was workforce housing. It was a very eye-opening meeting which provided the committee as well as the attendees a lot of food for thought. Some of the language in the multiple handouts is very ambiguous and raised a number of unanswered questions. The Alton representatives asked some very insightful questions and had difficulty determining concrete answers to many of the points. A subsequent meeting has been scheduled this month to further discuss the issue and to get clarification from consultant Steve Whitman of Jeffrey H. Taylor & Associates and Alton's Town Planner Ken McWilliams.

There was a significant turnout of interested Alton residents. We urge the people of Alton to attend the follow-up meetings on workforce housing in order to have a full understanding of what will appear on the next ballot and know the long-term consequences of passing such an amendment.
