Wilton HOP Grant

Wilton Housing Opportunity Planning Grant (HOP)

The Town of Wilton was recently awarded an Housing Opportunity Planning (HOP) Grant! The purpose of HOP Grants is to assist those municipalities looking to increase housing opportunities through community engagement and regulatory change. The Planning Board intends to provide project updates at each of their meetings, with opportunity for public comment. 

Through this grant, the Wilton Planning Board has engaged NRPC as a consultant to work on three phases of regulatory change:
  • Phase1: Needs Analysis and Planning
  • Phase 2: Regulatory Audits
  • Phase 3: Regulatory Development

To kick off the process, the Planning Board is conducting a community survey of Wilton residents, property and business owners. The survey is intended to obtain initial information about perceived housing needs, characteristics of desired neighborhoods, reactions to housing alternatives, and possible obstacles to development.wilton survey
