After a lackluster showing for housing production reforms during this year’s legislative session, the future could be brighter next year.

Gov. Ned Lamont told a crowd of housing developers, landlords and service providers at a conference Thursday that he saw housing as “the most important thing we do for the next three years.”

The CT Mirror reported that Lamont couched his support for doing more on housing in economic competitiveness terms.

It’s unclear what changes might be on deck next legislative session. Lawmakers passed a sizable housing funding bill this year, but stripped out zoning reforms that developers and advocates said were necessary to making housing faster, easier and cheaper to build, but which had aroused the ire of local government officials.
