The City of Westfield, as part of the 4 Cities Fair Housing Consortium, joined with the cities of Chicopee, Holyoke and Springfield to undertake an analysis of impediments to fair housing choice. This document identifies fair housing issues, sets goals to address the issues and lists strategies the cities will take to achieve those goals. This document addresses a requirement of the US Department of Housing & Urban Development that requires entitlement communities to address and further the goals of fair housing within their Five Year Consolidated Plan. The draft document is available for public comment until May 29, 2020.
