After the Zoning Board of Appeals in Manchester denied the permit for the affordable housing at Shingle Place Hill, the applicant appealed the decision to the State Housing Appeals Committee.
Our board of trustees voted unanimously to continue our efforts to protect Shingle Place Hill, in coordination with the town of Manchester, and other organizations seeking appropriate affordable housing.
Our small staff (just over two full-time equivalent employees) works hard to make each dollar count. Thank you for your support!
