DHCD corrects HPP date

When the Department of Housing and Community Development(DHCD) approved the Town’s Housing Production Plan this past month, it incorrectly stated the effective date in it approval.  Today the DHCD corrected that error with a new letter (copy attached below) noting the correct date.
