3. Review Draft Chapters: Chapter 4.0 Housing.
General observations: The document needs a list of definitions/glossary, there is little discussion of existing/preferred housing and too much discussion on alternatives/green construction.
Revisions, Corrections or Clarifications requested:
Pg. 4-1 *Introduction paragraph insert “(Town)” behind Town of Taycheedah.
*Existing Housing Supply first paragraph correct 20.6 % to “19.2%” and delete the word percent.
*Insert “in the Town” behind 161 new lots approved. Where was this data derived?
*Clarify what is meant by Taycheedah area?
Pg. 4-2 *Paragraph at the top of the page: strike “(i.e. 10% of the overall housing stock as something other than single-family detached residential)”.
Pg. 4-3 *Age and Quality of Housing Stock: Table 15, correct the total “# of Units in the Town” to 1407.
*Second paragraph: correct “the new Building Inspector” to the “Town’s Building Inspector”.

Pg. 4-4 *Age and Quality of Housing Stock: last paragraph, strike : two in the hamlet of Taycheedah and one larger grouping along USH 151 north of Peebles and insert “are scattered throughout the Town”.
Pg. 4-5 *Table 17, 2000 OWNER-OCCUPIED HOUSING VALUE, total number of unit is 995. This total appears inconsistent with Table 14 that illustrates 1,298 Single Family Detached Homes and 33 mobile homes. Does this mean the Town has 336 +/- seasonal homes?
Pg. 4-6 *First paragraph: 109 renter-occupied housing units also appears inconsistent.
*Housing Affordability Analysis: strike the entire last paragraph which begins with Manufactured housing is far more affordable than site built housing…..
*Need a definition of low-income housing, manufactured home, mobile home and stick-built home.
Pg. 4-7 *Strike entire top paragraph which begins with Another strategy that could be further considered….
