Needham Residents Advocating for More Housing Choice

We are building an open, informal coalition of Needham residents and other stakeholders who are interested in advocating for more attainable housing choices in Needham. We intend to be a community-driven resource for education and conversation about housing issues affecting our town, such as the Needham Housing Authority’s Preservation and Redevelopment Initiative and the Massachusetts MBTA Communities multi-family zoning law.
