The Easthampton Planning Board has decided to reopen the public hearing on a proposed affordable housing complex instead of voting, like they were supposed to Tuesday night.
Board members say some questions were raised at the public hearings over the past few months and they want more time to receive more information.
Reopening the hearing will also allow the developer to submit new plans to address those issues.
Developers are disappointed at the vote, but those who oppose the development say they’re glad the board is listening.
“It’s a square peg in a round hole, it’s not the right plan for that space 38 units is not the right idea,” said Amy Heflin of Easthampton.
Joanne Campbell of Community Development Corporation said “It’s important to get this housing up because there are people who are looking for decent safe affordable housing.”
They’ll hold that hearing on July 17th.
