Meeting set to address Noquochoke questions


The Westport Affordable Housing Trust Fund and the Housing Partnership Committee  invite the public to attend a community meeting about a future 50-unit affordable housing development known as Noquochoke Village.

The meeting will be held Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. in the Alice Macomber Primary School 154 Gifford Road, Westport.

The Board of Selectmen signed the purchase and sale agreement for the development of Noquochoke Village on June 2. The Community Builders, the selected developer, has yet to secure financing for the project and obtain various approvals at the local and state levels.

The Housing Partnership Committee, the Trust and The Community Builders will be prepared to address questions.

RSVP is encouraged but not mandatory to assure that there are enough refreshment and handouts. RSVP at:

We look forward to seeing you at the Macomber Primary School.
