We are happy to see Governor Baker filed a housing initiative that will increase the housing production in Massachusetts. The legislation modifies the permitting requirements in the hopes of improving the ability to build more housing – 135,000 new housing units by 2025 to be exact.
Governor Charlie Baker said, “This legislation is critical, will unlock the potential of our cities and towns committed to responsible growth, development and enacting best practices in sustainable housing production and we are committed to working with stakeholders and our partners in the legislature to make it a reality.”
This will lead to sustainable housing development that meets the needs of our current and future residents.
