At its January 11 meeting, the Municipal Affordable Housing Trust (MAHT) reached closure on the long-sought redevelopment of the Coast GuardHousing property on Pine Hill Road. Top officials of TR Advisors/A.W. Perry, the chosen firm, presented details of their winning proposal and answered questions resulting from the previous week’s meeting. After thoughtful and lengthy discussion, during which some members appeared somewhat less than enthusiastic about the plan, the Trust voted unanimously to award the contract to TR Advisors/A.W. Perry, subject to successful negotiation and execution of the Purchase & Sale Agreement, including the Development Services Agreement [as specified in the Request for Proposal.]Before taking a vote, the Trust members awarded a composite score of “highly advantageous” to the proposal.
