CPA MINUTE: Rita Shah on Affordable Housing


“Hello, I am Rita Shah, a member of the Burlington Housing Partnership Committee.

One problem we see too often in Burlington is that older citizens want to relocate from their long-time homes into smaller living spaces where they don’t need to deal with all the issues of home ownership, from to raking leaves to shoveling snow.

These are people who have lived their whole lives in Burlington, but now can’t find an affordable place to live.

The Community Preservation Act can provide truly affordable rental apartments so our older Burlington residents can stay as part of our community, live in dignity, and share their wisdom and experience with all.

Please vote for the CPA this November. Thank you.”
