Easton's TM Votes to Support Trust Budget

I'm pleased to announce the Easton Municipal Affordable Housing Trust's success at securing 100% of its year one funding request at Town Meeting.  After my colleague, Beth Rust, and I completed our work to create an action plan and budget for Easton's new Municipal Affordable Housing Trust, which included working directly with the members of the new Trust in addition to facilitating community input at a planning workshop, the trustees successfully carried the torch. First, they took the plan and budget to the Easton Community Preservation Committee (CPC), presented a description of each priority initiative as laid out in the plan, and detailed how the budget relates directly to funding these initiatives.  Then, with CPC support, secured the Town Meeting vote to fully fund year one.
