The Greenwich Housing Authority previously received unanimous approval to proceed with its plans to establish five affordable housing units on the properties.
The Planning and Zoning Commission granted a municipal improvement status—a designation needed for the plan to allow the purchase of properties. The unanimous vote came at the commission's Jan. 8 meeting.
