Darien’s five-year affordable housing plan is approved and headed to the state three months after the initial deadline. Under Connecticut law, all 169 municipalities were required to submit affordable housing plans at the beginning of June to address the statewide housing shortage. The commission is also considering tracking progress on affordable housing with an annual report, though it would not be a formal requirement. The commission is waiting on the 2020 census data to confirm the number of affordable housing units Darien must meet to achieve a third moratorium on affordable housing. The town was previously granted two four-year moratoria, exempting the community from state-mandated affordable housing projects.
