Affordable housing a drop in the bucket

The Editor,

The headline read: “Chelsea finally affordable” (May 31, 2023 edition). The lawmakers in the municipality had approved a new housing development, in our town of 8,000 residents, at 185 Ch. Old Chelsea — with an allotment for three units to residents whose income is $40,000 per year. Hooray! But wait, was that three homes?

At the moment, the total number of households is 3,040. Of that, 345 households in Chelsea have an income under $49,000. This is a first. Will a second and third come to Chelsea?
