Thursday, October 10, 2013
12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA
House Bill #1859: An Act Promoting the Planning and Development of
Sustainable Communities is a zoning reform initiative that is currently pending
before the Joint Committee on Municipalities and Regional Government. Many
who advocate for this legislation, including the Smart Growth Alliance, argue
that it is essential for stable and productive zoning in Massachusetts.
Others, including the Home Builders Association of Massachusetts, claim that it
will make the permitting and zoning process more difficult, potentially stifling
development and increasing costs. This program will provide a critical
overview from both perspectives.
