To quote your site, Paul, "Paul Maisano democrat for congress": Paul stood up to testifyRead Moref or affordable housing in Massachusetts communities. Paul believes affordable housing can be an integral part of any city or town, provided the communities are able to maintain control over their own destinies. So he presented a statewide Home Rule regulation to preserve a community's right to protect master planning and local zoning laws against the misuse of Comprehensive Permit provisions under Chapter 40B I think the operative words here are "provided the communities are able to maintain control over their own destinies" and "...a community's right to protect master planning and local zoning laws against the misuse of comprehensive permit provisions under 40B". Whether you agree or disagree with this development, it is the right of citizens to insist on representation when there is a matter of importance to the town. Increased traffic and safety concerns are paramount in determining whether Weiss Farms should be developed into 264 apartments. Ask the police. Ask the fire department. Ask people who are forced to commute daily on an already overtravelled street.

The reality is that three ZBA board members said publicly, after one of their meetings, that thereRead Morew as no use 'fighting' this. They had not studied the 40b issue, nor for that matter bothered to recuse themselves where appropriate for conflicts of interest. There is neither any sense of shame nor responsibility to the town residents. Kudos to Paula, Camille and Devon for putting the town residents first among many others.
