Shelburne affordable housing rally

Supporters of a proposed housing development in Shelburne are holding a rally in advance of tonight's Shelburne Development Review Board (DRB) meeting.

The proposal would replace the Shelburnewood Mobile Home Park with a mix of affordable, work-place and market-rate housing, including senior housing.

The plan calls for at least 53 percent of the development's family and workforce units — and at least 38 percent of the senior citizen units — to be affordable.
