Help Make Housing Cheaper/Better for Young People!


EDITOR’s NOTE: We got great response to this post from all of you in the ONEin3 community. So great, in fact, that our two focus groups filled up in under an hour. We are working to get more voices heard through these efforts and we’ll let you know as soon as we have something to announce. In the meantime, please please leave any ideas or suggestions that you have about housing in Boston in the comments section. THANKS!

Do you LOVE Boston, but worry about living here permanently because of the cost?

Are you desperate for somewhere to grill in the summertime?

Do you wish you could live closer to work and shorten your commute?

If you could imagine your ideal house or apartment in Boston, what would it look like?

NOW is your chance to make your voice heard and influence new housing development in the City.

The Housing Committee of the ONEin3 Boston Mayor’s Advisory Council is conducting two focus groups that will influence the City’s plans for future housing development. Even though one third of Boston’s population is between the ages of 20 and 34, there is very little housing developed with young people specifially in mind.

Please sign up for a short focus group on the following dates and help the City of Boston help you!  The focus group will last approximately an hour and a half and will take place at Boston City Hall on Monday, March 15th or Tuesday March 23rd

March 23rd: http://onein3housing2.eventbrite.com

Who we are:
