Update: 10/03/2021 – Added the feedback section to the post below
Access to housing has long been an important issue to the Cornwall community. With the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become a more urgent issue. Home prices have soared and the rental market has virtually disappeared. Residents (current & future) need housing options as they look to age-in-place, grow their families, or perhaps move to the community for the very first time.
This draft housing plan has been prepared to proactively position Cornwall so that it will be able to provide housing to all- regardless of race, age, socio-economic status, nationality, ethnicity, differing abilities, and political & religious beliefs.
This plan also fulfills a state requirement to prepare a municipal affordable housing plan under Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 126A, Section 8-30j. The preparation of this plan has been funded by the CT Department of Housing.
At this time, the Cornwall Housing Plan Steering Committee welcomes input from the community on this draft for discussion. The committee will be hosting a public presentation of the Cornwall Affordable Housing Draft Plan on October 20th at 7:00 PM via Zoom. We hope that you will attend.

The Cornwall Affordable Housing Plan Steering Committee greatly appreciates the time that you have taken to read this plan. As you review it, we are especially interested in feedback on the plan goals and proposed housing strategies (which begins on page 14). We have prepared some prompts that will help us to further refine and finalize the plan.
