Group pushing on an array of issues, not just affordable housing

0 1





The article “Affordable housing groups want in on Preservation Act” (Metro, Feb. 12) mischaracterizes the implementation of the Community Preservation Act in two significant respects. First, it describes the Yes for a Better Boston committee as a coalition of affordable housing advocates. In fact, Yes for a Better Boston, of which we are all leading members, is composed of advocates for housing, parks, green space, historic preservation, youth, arts, and a wide array of other issues. Cooperation among all causes has been and remains the coalition’s strength.

The coalition is not seeking to prioritize housing voices on the Community Preservation Committee. Rather, it is seeking a diverse group of residents who can represent all the potential uses of CPA funds and all of our city’s rich diversity.

Second, the coalition’s conversations to date with city councilors and the Walsh administration have been frequent, collaborative, and collegial. There is no conflict or fight and no need for the Globe to provoke one.

All of us want the same thing: to see the CPA implemented in a manner that is fair, equitable, effective, and efficient. And, by working together, that is precisely what we are going to do.
