Brookline for Everyone Event
Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023

This Tuesday, February 28, the Select Board will vote to engage Opticos Design to flush out the details of the Planning Department’s proposal to rezone the Harvard Street Corridor to increase our capacity for multifamily housing in order to comply with the requirements of the MBTACA. For more background on MBTACA, see B4E’s FAQs here. The Select Board approved this $277,200 expenditure (from local ARPA funds) several weeks ago, but now needs to authorize the actual contract. Since we hope you will be coming to our big event at Hops N Scotch at 6:30 Tuesday, we suggest that you simply send a short email to the Select Board, ℅ Devon Fields at dfields@brooklinema.gov, asking them to approve the contract to keep our work to comply with MBTACA on schedule. Feel free to use this form, or write your own. If you can’t attend the Hops N Scotch event and want to zoom into the Select Board Meeting to speak during the public comment section at 6:00 pm, you can register here, and also send a note to Devon (dfields@brooklinema.gov) asking to be put on the comment list.
