Developments

The Belmont Hosing Authority managers a total of four state-aided public housing developments that include Belmont Village, Sherman Gardens Apartments, Waverley Oaks Apartments, and Clark Lane.  Belmont Village is the authority's family and Veteran's housing development that was originally built in 1950 and has a total of 100 apartments that include fifty two-bedroom and fifty three-bedroom apartments.  The elderly/handicapped developments include Sherman Gardens Apartments which was built in 1971 and has a total of eighty one-bedroom apartments and Waverley Oaks Apartments which was built in 1976 and has a total of seventy-four one-bedroom apartments.  The Authority also owns a two-family accessible home that was built in 1988 and provides housing with a 24-hour support staff for eight people with physical and developmental disabilities.

In addition to the State-aided conventional housing programs, the Authority also administers two rental assistance programs that include 47 Federal Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and 1 Massachusetts Rental Voucher.  Both rental assistance programs provide rent subsidies to private landlords on behalf of income eligible households.  In accordance with an approved contractual agreement, the Dedham Housing Authority continues to handle the day-to-day operations for the Section 8 Voucher Program.

During 2013, the Authority implemented a number of capital improvement projects that included the completion of an electric service upgrade to replace underground wiring for twenty-one buildings at Belmont Village.  The project was approved by Town Meeting and $147,000.00 was appropriated through the Community Preservation Act. The other projects included the replacement of roofs at Waverley Oaks Apartments and Clark Lane.

In 2014, the Authority plans to replace the roofs at Sherman Gardens Apartments, complete the replacement of front entrance steps at Sherman Gardens Apartments, and begin site work on Clark Lane that will include addressing some drainage issues, replacement of pavers and railings, ramp repairs and rear deck replacement. The Authority is also again applying for CPA funds for further electrical upgrades that will include interior wiring at Belmont Village.
