58 legislators co-sponsor zoning reform


Thank you to the 58 state representatives and senators who co-sponsored the Massachusetts Smart Growth’s zoning reform bill, which is also supported by the MA Public Health Association and the City and Town Solicitors Association.

A special thanks to our lead sponsors, Representative Stephen Kulik (Worthington) and Senator Dan Wolf (Harwich), who have helped ensure that this is a bill with broad appeal. We look forward to working with them, legislative leadership, city and town officials, and many others to refine and pass landmark zoning reform!

LEARN MORE more about the bill on our website.

This is only the beginning of the legislative process. Next, the bill will be assigned to a committee and scheduled for a hearing, hopefully early in the spring.

Please thank Rep. Kulik at [email protected] and Sen. Wolf at [email protected], as well as other sponsors listed below.
