The Town of Woodbury is seeking public input for the development of an Affordable Housing Plan. These plans are required to be developed by all municipalities under Section 8-30j of the Connecticut General Statutes. These questions will assist the town in understanding the communities thoughts regarding affordable housing. We appreciate your time and interest in this survey. Please click the link below to complete the survey.
Due to a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the community, all town buildings and departments are closed to the public effective 11/20/20.
