Housing continues to be the dominant issue facing our communities. Bad contractors, bad developers, and bad deals for our city continue to be the norm. We know we can do better. We support the preservation of the housing that we have now and the development of new housing priced for all of Lynn’s income levels, not just the wealthy. This includes (but is not limited to) an Inclusionary Zoning ordinance, which would require that 20% of new units are affordable to Lynn’s lower and middle incomes. We further support efforts to ensure that a majority of all new development jobs and 80% of all new units developed give first preference to Lynn residents.
