Housing is a Priority for Rona Smith

1015Did you know that Rona Smith is Chair of the Southold Town Housing Advisory Committee and was instrumental in the development of the “Cottages at Mattituck” project?

“Many affordable housing units have been built in Southold over the years, but they have been lost to the marketplace,” Rona explains.

Not until The Cottages at Mattituck were built, under the Housing Advisory Commission with Rona on board, has there been no loss of housing to the un-affordable market!

“Of the 22 original units, five have sold at affordable rates set by cost of living compounded by years of ownership,” she said. “Small profit for owner, affordable price for new buyer!”
