MBTA Communities: Next Steps for Advocates towards implementation!

On August 10, DHCD issued the final guidelines for Multi-Family Zoning requirements for MBTA Communities. The guidelines are finalized, it’s time to focus on implementation!

Join us on Wednesday, September 28th at 6pm for a members only virtual event focused on briefing the finalized MBTA law guidelines from DHCD and participatory planning for advocates in supporting their communities towards implementation.

Organizing strategizing will take place in breakout rooms separated by region/communities for tailored strategizing and community building amongst advocates.

Participants will leave the event with a better understanding of: the finalized Multi-Family Zoning Requirement for MBTA Communities, the technical assistance available to their city/town planners as well as an initial organizing strategy towards implementation in their own communities.

Guest Speakers include:

Chris Kluchman, Deputy Director Community Services Division at MA Dept. of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). Additional guests will be announced as confirmed.

This 90 minute virtual members’ event, and the accompanying resources, will also be made available at a later date. Given the participatory nature of this event we encourage members to attend live.
