Turn Those Churches Into Housing Projects

Some interesting comments from a member of the Boston City Council:


     "The best long-term solution, which is supported by leading economists as well as the Municipal Research Bureau, is to increase the supply of housing. Only through increasing the supply of housing units in the city can we attempt to bring down prices," said Flaherty. "I, therefore, look forward to holding hearings when the council reconvenes in the New Year to assess any unused properties in the city of Boston - be they owned by the city, Boston Redevelopment Authority, state or the Catholic Church - and seek to have them developed for affordable housing.

     "If I had one wish this holiday season, it would be for the Catholic Church to give the city first right of refusal in purchasing the properties they are trying to sell so the city can continue the church's mission and use them for neighborhood schools, drug treatment centers, soup kitchens, before and after-school programs, and most importantly, affordable housing," Flaherty said.
