Last Updated: Oct. 28, 2013, noonCambridge has been losing families because most new rental units and affordable units have only one or two bedrooms, while some are studio apartments, and Micro- units are being discussed. In addition, the lack of on-campus graduate housing has pushed the grad students of MIT, Harvard, and BU into the Cambridge housing market with the effect of raising rents beyond the reach of families. Will you push for legislation requiring that all affordable housing have at least 2 - 3 bedrooms and that the percentage of new affordable units under inclusionary zoning be increased to 25%. Do you agree that in order to support diversity and meet the housing needs of sustainable growth in Cambridge, increased density may be necessary? If elected, what specific policies or initiatives will you support to achieve sustainable urban growth and to increase low and moderate income housing for all populations, including families?
