Public Policy Consulting

HomeConnecticut

HOMEConnecticutIn 2006 and early 2007, Ted Carman, working through and with the Center for Urban and Regional Policy of Northeastern University, prepared a detailed analysis and recommendations on Statewide Housing issues for HOMEConnecticut, a group organized by the Partnership for Strong Communities. The analysis considered overall zoning, property taxation, and school cost issues with regard to high housing costs, low new job creation, and excessively high out-migration of 25 to 35 year olds in Connecticut. Detailed discussions over a period of months were held with the 40 person Steering Committee of HOMEConnecticut in order to develop a consensus as to the nature of the problem, and what policy directions should be taken. The resulting recommendation proposed legislation similar to Massachusetts Chapters 40R and 40S. These recommendations were followed, and legislation was drafted, reviewed, modified, and then passed and enacted into law in June, 2007 (SB 1500).
