Housing Finance Authority says Goffstown has met Plan Pinardville obligations
“This brings this matter to a close as far as the board is concerned,” said Adams.
“If we officially vote it down, we have something to show,” she said.
“I know the town has money somewhere. There’s some pet project that somebody wanted,” she said.
Selectmen Nick Campasano said the board of selectmen has a responsibility for the town’s financial stability, and returning the money may not be in its best interest.
State Rep. John Burt also spoke about returning the money and indicated he would pursue the possibility of a petitioned warrant article to let the voters decide in March.
An ad hoc committee worked for seven months with a consultant to design a model to improve Pinardville and promote mixed-use development in town. Many residents voiced their concerns throughout the process, saying HUD will force the town to build low-income housing that would result in higher taxes, increased traffic and changes in lifestyle. Some items in the plan were revised to reflect residents’ concerns.
