Housing proposal gets mixed reaction in Wellesley
Boston Globe - 06/28/2017
The proposal comes as the Boston area faces a recent downturn in housing construction, particularly for multi-family developments. The number of permits for new housing units had grown from about 4,700 in 2009 to nearly 14,000 in 2015, according to a report released in November by Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy. But researchers said there was an 18 percent drop in permits in 2016.
