  • Mass. senate committee crafts plan to address housing ‘crisis’

    WBUR - 03/03/2016

    One of the committee members is Barry Bluestone of Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center, who has been advocating for colleges and universities to support the construction of millennial villages.

    “Unfortunately, because we have so little housing for [graduate students] and very little graduate housing beside Harvard and MIT, those folks are taking over housing that was intended for folks in the communities,” Bluestone said. “The whole idea of the millennial village … is to come up with innovative ideas for housing that would be affordable, but also really exciting for young millennials.”

    He praised the committee’s plan as a step forward in the struggle to fix the state’s housing woes.

    “I have never seen such an incredible group of experts and advocates come together in one place, to really … come up with the finest comprehensive set of ideas around housing we have ever seen in the commonwealth’s history,” Bluestone said.
