A proposed apartment complex will satisfy the requirement set by the state for municipalities to have 10 percent of total stock dedicated to affordable housing.

The property, off Corporate Drive, is owned by the Davis Companies. Chris Chandor, vice president of development at the Davis Companies and attorney Robert Buckley of Riemer & Braunstein came before the planning board on Jan. 19 to give an update on the proposal and number of units, which was originally brought before the board in early 2015.
