    Statewide Virtual Meeting Thu Sep 8: Zoning Reform and Land Use Research Session

    5:00 PM-6:40 PM
    09/08/2022

    At this event we’ll have a directed group discussion about zoning reform and land use. Our focus will of course be on multifamily housing. We will start with a short presentation on zoning and land use restrictions, including a zoning reform proposed in Newton. (This discussion is not limited to landlords with ties to Newton.) We will aim to cover a variety of topics of interest to zoning reform researchers and advocates, including:

    • How many of us have recently added a unit to an existing developed lot?
    • How many of us would add units to existing developed lots if we could?
    • What do we think some of the upsides of zoning reform are? What are some of the downsides?
    • What is it like to try for a zoning appeal?
    • Why do landlords support zoning reform?

    Attendees will leave having shared perspective with MassLandlords staff and research associates in ways that will influence academic research and policy advocacy.

    Screenshot of the MAPC zoning atlas showing huge swaths of what people think of as dense parts of the state that do not allow 2+ units on a lot. More than half of Boston is now effectively single family.
    The MAPC Zoning Atlas shows that huge swaths of areas perceived as dense no longer allow creation or restoration of 2+ units on a single lot (brown), even with special permission. More than half of Boston is now effectively single family.

    This discussion will be moderated in part by Jenna Davis. Jenna is a PhD Candidate in Urban Planning at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation of Columbia University. Jenna’s current research examines how local land use regulations interact with neighborhood change in North American cities.

    Sullivan
    . Patrick has been an avid landlord since 2007 primarily
    focusing on multi families in the greater Worcester area. Having
    worked in high level IT his whole life he looks at things from a
    different perspective which he applies to real estate. He
    became a Real Estate agent in 2015 and now primarily focuses on
    Sober living facilities for people recently out of drug and alcohol
    treatment centers. Patrick sits on the statewide MassLandlords Board of Directors.

    Statewide Virtual Meeting Tue Sep 20: Supercharge the Deleading Credit and End Poisoning Forever?

    5:20 PM-7:00 PM
    09/10/2022

    This members-only discussion will review an opportunity to dramatically increase the state deleading credit. Massachusetts has the opportunity to reach functional zero lead poisoning. The upcoming 193rd legislative session may accomplish this.

    We’ll review the situation and the opportunities:

    • Lead poisonings increased 20% during the pandemic.
    • Despite 50 years of leadership in lead poisoning prevention, Massachusetts’ progress could stall.
    • A unique opportunity exists to build a coalition with real estate groups and renter advocacy organizations to jointly file a bill.
    • The Chapter 111 Governor’s Advisory Committee could get us high-level sponsorship.

    At this meeting we will review a MassLandlords plan to eliminate lead as a concern for landlords, families and the commonwealth. We can be the first state in the country to reach functional zero lead poisoning in old housing stock.

    You may have already received a special invitation to this event because of your dual status as an MRHA member. This is the same event. Your input is still required. This event is open to all MassLandlords members, as well.

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,500 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
