Town Meeting season is once again upon us here on the Cape and Islands. In Provincetown, residents will consider several articles at next week's Town Meeting that address the town's affordable housing crunch.
One is a bylaw that would impose a fee on new development. The fee would go into an affordable housing fund. It's called the Inclusionary Housing Bylaw, and other places, like Boston and Barnstable, have similar versions in place.
Another article aims to slow conversions of older housing stock into condos, which often become unaffordable for year-round renters.
