Great Neighborhoods Campaign

We need to reform our state’s planning, zoning, and permitting laws to support communities that work for families and seniors. Great neighborhoods offer housing choices, are vibrant and healthy places that protect open space and natural resources, allow cities & towns to plan for the future, and establish predictable permitting for small businesses and property owners.

We urge the Legislature to pass a “Great Neighborhoods” bill by July 31, 2018 that builds on Governor Baker’s Housing Choice proposal and includes a number of additional provisions to improve local board training, site plan review, reduce frivolous appeals, encourage mediation for development projects, promote accessory apartments (ADUs), cluster zoning and more.
