Housing Production Plan

HPP graphic2022 Housing Production Plan Project

In Massachusetts, Housing Production Plans (HPPs) help municipalities better understand local housing needs and demand, development constraints and opportunities, and their vision for future Affordable Housing (and sometimes market-rate housing).

The Carlisle Affordable Housing Trust has organized this planning project to study Carlisle’s housing needs and develop a strategy for increasing the supply of affordable housing, consistent with the goals articulated in the final draft of the Carlisle Master Plan. 

The project is being supported by expert housing planners from the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), and is guided by a nine-member steering committee of Carlisle residents, housing professionals, board members, and other community stakeholders that were enlisted by the CAHT:

  • Adelaide Grady, Carlisle Planning Board
  • Barney Arnold, Carlisle Select Board 
  • Gina Fox, Carlisle Affordable Housing Trust 
  • Maureen Cosgrove-Deery, Carlisle Affordable Housing Trust 
  • Joan Ingersoll, Carlisle Council on Aging
  • Christine Lear, Carlisle Member at Large 
  • Amanda Coperchio, Carlisle School Committee
  • Rachel Gore Freed, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Council
  • Jeffrey Brem, Habitat for Humanity
