Ted Hess-Mahan posted this article on another thread. “Here is an important PSA for the NIMBY in your life:” Talk to your friends about zoning. I thought it deserved it’s own thread. Basically it says:
the anti-development Baby Boomer [is] thwarting efforts to expand the housing stock and driving up his own home value in the process.
pushing planners to reject high-cost projects (“Gentrification!”) and low-cost projects (“Crime rates!”) and everything in between (“Neighborhood character!”)
Is this happening in Newton? All opinions welcome.
