AHMA Policy Agenda for the City of Boston

AHMA supports the following initiatives for delivering housing abundance in the City of Boston. Together, we can make Boston a City for everyone:

  • Affordable Housing Overlay: Create abundant housing by expediting approval of affordable homes.
  • Missing Middle Overlay: Foster abundant housing with new missing middle homes by making up to 4-unit housing projects as-of-right within the City of Boston.
  • Eliminate Parking Minimums: Reduce rents and home prices by eliminating parking minimums for all housing projects within the City of Boston.
  • Turn Planning into Zoning: Establish predictable zoning rules to build the safe, green, and equitable communities Bostonians demand and deserve.
  • Housing Production Targets: Establish binding annual housing permitting and production targets per 10,000 residents in the City of Boston.
