Abstract

The shortage of affordable housing has been a major problem in Nantucket, MA, and continues to be so today. The goal of this project was to help Housing Nantucket evaluate strategies and options for expanding the availability of affordable housing on Nantucket. Through case studies, interviews, literature reviews, and observations, we identified suitable parcels of land for affordable housing developments and examined innovative land use and green building methods for these parcels.
