FOCUS ON HOUSING
A forum hosted by the Truro Housing Authority
Tuesday, November 28, 4:30-6:00 p.m.
To help focus on the scope of our housing needs in Truro, Jeffery Ribeiro, a professional planner from the Cape Cod Commission, will present recent findings of their Regional Housing Market Analysis and 10-Year Forecast of Housing Supply and Demand. Truro's Housing Specialist, Leedara Zola, will then highlight the Truro Housing Authority's recent Housing Production Plan that was adopted by the Truro Board of Selectmen in October.  

The forum will be an excellent opportunity to become better informed about housing issues that directly impact the Town, its citizens and the Lower Cape. It will give us a chance to ask questions and think in depth about our options and potential responses to our community housing needs. We have an opportunity to chart the best course for Truro and we invite you to be part of that discussion. 

The Friends of the Truro Library annual Angel Tree at the Truro Public Library: Calling all angels! The angel tree is up and hung with paper angels that specify the first name, gender, age and favorite color of a Cape Cod child who needs your help. When you've chosen your angel or angels from the tree, you can get each one an age-appropriate hat, gloves or mittens, and a book (an optional toy is also welcome).  Donations of wrapping paper and/or gift bags with which parents can ready their children's gifts are also needed.  Gifts must be returned by Wednesday, December 6, so the  Friends of the Truro Library will have time to sort the gifts and deliver them to their Angel Tree sponsor, the Homeless Prevention Council in Orleans. This wonderful program is a time-tested way to share your holiday spirit!
