This is a BPDA public meeting to discuss a text amendment to the Boston Zoning Code which would provide zoning relief for affordable housing developments. The text amendment would eliminate parking minimums for residential developments where at least 60% of the units are income-restricted at 100% Area Median Income (AMI) or below. The amendment would apply to developments with affordable rental and/or homeownership units.
Although the zoning amendment would eliminate requirements for a minimum amount of parking, developers and the City of Boston would continue to determine the right amount of parking for each affordable housing project on a case-by-case basis through the project review process.
The intention of the zoning amendment is to eliminate delays and unnecessary costs for affordable housing developments.
