At 7 p.m. sharp (in three minutes), with David Wluka of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors and a developer who is seeking to use the market to produce housing for folks in the 65 to 80 % of median income range.

Discussion covers:

  • the continued impact of regulations that restrict supply;
  • the arguments made by municipalities (impact on property values and, ugh, we cannot afford the schools costs that come with kids!); and
  • how cities can address these issues (long-term contracts with municipal employees, pension reform, and insuring employees through the Group Insurance Commission).

Munis, if you have problems, come to Pioneer.  We have the solutions.  Just look at what Springfield’s been able to accomplish.
