Town of Belmont
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
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
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.
