The co-chairs of the recently re-established city Housing Blue Ribbon Committee are committed to developing a below-market-rate housing project at the former Sherburne School.

Assistant Mayor Joanna ‘Jo’ Kelley and City Councilor John Tabor will serve as leaders of the committee, which is scheduled to hold its first meeting this week.

Kelley and Tabor said the city-owned former Sherburne School presents the council with a unique opportunity to partner with a nonprofit, most likely the Portsmouth Housing Authority, to develop a below-market-rate housing project.
