Ashland housing for vets gets OK from ZBA
The proposal comes from a group of area businesses and organizations that have partnered with Soldier On, a national homeless veterans advocacy group. The groups want to develop nine acres of flat woodlands on Riverside Drive into four buildings with at least 50 one-bedroom units.
Soldier On housing projects are permanent cooperatives that provide formerly homeless veterans with safe, sustainable, affordable housing while transitioning them from homelessness to homeownership, as veterans are able to buy their dwellings with special payment arrangements.
“The bottom line is that this project and its residents will be a tremendous addition to the already great town of Ashland.”
Willis and Deb Holland spoke at the previous zoning board meeting, questioning whether the town could offer homeless veterans the services they need.
