A town in Southern New Hampshire is considering banning 55-and-older housing.
Voters in Pelham will decide the issue during a special meeting this Saturday. The ballot question would also impose tighter zoning regulations on 62-plus housing built in town.
The measure first passed in March, but the town is holding a re-vote because town officials failed to follow proper notification requirements leading up to the first vote.
The issue is stirring a lot debate in the community about what to do about the town’s rapidly aging population.
