By state law, specifically Connecticut General Statutes Section 8-30j, all Connecticut municipalities must prepare and adopt an affordable housing plan by June 1, 2022, and every five years thereafter. The following is a link to Chapter 126a of the General Statutes, which includes Section 8-30j:

Chapter 126a also includes Section 8-30g which contains the affordable housing land use appeals procedure. To be exempt from the procedure, ten percent (10%) of all dwelling units in a municipality must meet the requirements identified in Section 8-30g(k). Currently, 9.24% of Berlin’s housing stock is deemed affordable.  See the 2020 Affordable Housing Appeals List at https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/DOH/2020-Affordable-Housing-Appeals-List.pdf.

 The Berlin Town Council appointed an Affordable Housing Plan Advisory Committee to assist the Council in preparation of the 2022-27 Berlin Affordable Housing Plan. Community input is crucial to the process of developing the Town’s Plan.

To obtain direct input, a Housing Plan Survey was prepared and distributed. 

 To assist the municipalities with preparation of their respective plans, the Connecticut Department of Housing and Regional Plan Association issued an “Affordable Housing Plan and Process Guidebook” (see link below), which contains suggested content for an affordable housing plan.
