Affordable Housing Trust

The Affordable Housing Trust was established by the Town of Carlisle, acting by and through its Select Board, through a Declaration of Trust (“Declaration”) made on October 24, 2006, as approved by vote of the 2006 Annual Town Meeting and amended on 6/6/21.

There shall be a Board of Trustees of the Carlisle Affordable Housing Trust Fund, consisting of seven (7) Trustees, who shall be appointed by the Select Board, and who shall include no fewer than one member of the Select Board. Only persons who are residents of the Town of Carlisle shall be eligible to hold the office of Trustee. Trustees shall serve for a term of two years and may be re-appointed at the discretion of the Select Board, provided however, that three (3) of the seven (7) appointments initially made after the adoption of this Article shall be for a term of one (1) year, so that as nearly an equal number of the Trustees’ terms as possible shall expire each year.

Any Trustee who ceases to be a resident of the Town of Carlisle shall cease to be a Trustee and shall promptly provide a written notification of the change in residence to the Board of Trustees and the Town Clerk. Any Trustee may resign by written instrument signed and acknowledged by such Trustee and duly filed with the Town Clerk. If a Trustee shall die, resign, or for any other reason cease to be a Trustee before their term of office expires, a successor shall be appointed by the Select Board to fill such vacancy provided that in each case the said appointment and acceptance in writing by the Trustee so appointed is filed with the Town Clerk. No such appointment shall be required so long as there are five Trustees in office. Any member of the Board of Trustees may be removed by the Select Board for cause after the opportunity of a hearing.

The Carlisle Affordable Housing Trust meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30 P.M.
