Resolution


On April 8, 1985 the Annual Town Meeting unanimously adopted the following Fair Housing Policy Statement:
It is the policy of the Town of Wellesley, acting through all of its agencies, to insure equal housing opportunity for all people without regard to race, color, national ancestry, age, sex, religious preference or marital status. In instances where there is either an over-concentration or under-representation of minorities as compared to Boston SMSA population figures, the Town of Wellesley will work with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination in investigating and taking or supporting appropriate legal action against violations of fair housing law.

The Fair Housing Committee has been charged by its appointing authority, the Wellesley Board of Selectmen, with promoting this policy through educational programs to inform people of anti-discrimination laws and with encouraging and monitoring the enforcement of these laws.
