BNEWS In Depth: MBTA Communities Act

Burlington has until the end of December to comply with the MBTA Communities Act, which requires transit-adjacent towns to create multi-family housing districts within their borders. BNEWS producer Sydney Boles sits down with Burlington Planning Director Liz Bonventre and Burlington Area Chamber of Commerce President Rick Parker to talk about the law, its economic impacts, and how the town is thinking about getting the zoning changes through Town Meeting in May.

Planning Director Liz Bonventre and planning professionals from the consulting firm VHB shared the details of the plan in a community forum recently. Watch the forum here.
