Proposed One Year Ban on New Multifamily Projects in Quincy, MA
At the September 5th Quincy city council meeting, a proposed moratorium on new multifamily construction was revealed by Councilor at Large John Keenan. In a city that many had thought had few buildable lots, there has been surge in new construction. Whether by blasting out rock or tearing down old homes on large lots, there has been an increase in the new home stock in Quincy. Has this been benefit to the city? What are the pros and cons of such a ban?
