Habitat plans scrapped on Bay Path Road

'The residents of Charlton are the priority'

May 07, 2012
CHARLTON — The town's plans to partner with Habitat for Humanity to build an affordable home on Bay Path Road have been stalled.

After Bay Path Road residents brought concerns about the proposed project to selectmen last month, the board decided at their Tuesday, May 1 meeting to scrap plans to include an article in the upcoming Town Meeting warrant that would seek voters' support to allow the town-owned land parcel to be used for the construction of affordable housing.

"I'm not against affordable housing, but the residents of Charlton are the priority," said Board of Selectmen Chairman David Singer, speaking of Patricia Heath, whose land abuts the parcel on Bay Path Road and who came with her neighbors to the meeting to ask selectmen to reconsider the proposed plans.
