Monday, April 28th
3:30PM – Rally at Millennium Place, March to City Hall
(580 Washington St., Downtown Crossing)
4:30PM – City Council Public Hearing on Affordable Housing, Housing Inequality, and Inclusionary Development Program
(Boston City Hall)
Since Millennium Partners built their first luxury tower next to Chinatown in 2000, rents have skyrocketed to $2000-$3000 a month, forcing families to double and triple up in one unit. Yet they have not paid some $15 million in fees for affordable housing that they should have paid under the City’s inclusionary development policy. Millennium Partners has also failed to meet the Boston Residency Jobs Policy goals and set good job standards for the permanent jobs their development will create. All while reaping the benefits of $26 million in tax breaks and 10 years of collecting parking fees on public land!
After the Millennium Partners rally, Councilor Josh Zakim is hosting a City Council hearing on affordable housing, housing inequality and the inclusionary development policy. Come share your stories on your fight to remain in Boston. Tell the City Council: We can’t wait for affordable housing!
