Update on area organizations involved in affordable housing:
1. As of May 1st, Groton Commons will become a no smoking property. This change is considered healthful by HUD, but in the short run will negatively impact one long term resident who smokes and will need new housing.

2. Habitat for Humanity of North Central Masschusetts is seeking a new project and is open to working in Groton.

Update on Boynton Meadows.

Other topics:
1. Oakridge comprehensive permit project.
2. Housing Production Plan update.
3. Accessory apartments. Allowed by Groton zoning and considered a form of affordable housing by the Commonwealth. Discuss whether Trust wants to encourage the creation of accessory apartments.

Votes may be taken.
