You Help Make it Possible!

Keeping North Stonington Affordable (KNSA) proposes building 25 affordable rental apartment homes at Wrights Road on currently town-owned land.

Gaining site control of approximately 10 acres is the first step in seeking state or private funding to build these rental apartments. Site control and how long it is held is governed by state statute 8-24. It states the following: the Board of Selectmen must consider and pass approval to the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z); upon P&Z consideration and approval, the question is passed to the people either at a town meeting or referendum for consideration. If site control is obtained, but funding is not secured within a specified time, the land would revert back to the town.

Use of this land for affordable housing would honor the desire of the donors when they gifted 109 acres of land to the town. Our plan of conservation and development supports the need for more affordable choices in housing.

North Stonington has only 1.2% deed-restricted affordable housing, the lowest in our region. This is an opportunity to address that need. Keeping North Stonington Affordable is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation with a board of directors comprised of North Stonington residents. Our motto is: ”Providing a Hometown Solution.” Your support will help provide a solution to the housing shortage in our town.
