Large, expanding, unchecked development is causing displacement across Boston.

Right now, in a tiny section of Mattapan, we are facing developers with deep pockets, connections to City Hall, and a process that allows them to waltz through unchecked.

At 52 and 54 River Street, 02126 developers have spent thousands on lawyers to study parcels of land that would allow them to build to MAXIMUM density (22 units where three houses once stood) to out-price and displace Mattapan residents.

Developers have lied about ownership, to hide property and money, and without any transparency, or accountability, they risk public safety as they cram as much poorly made housing into an inaccessible parcel.

This development will cut our houses off from sunlight, a right to a life of quality, will overburden an easement that was expected to hold a few families vehicles and forever change the fabric of Mattapan.

The developers have threatened to bulldoze land they do not own, they refuse to have any community engagement and the City allows it all to happen under the umbrella of "as of right" permits. All of our verified research shows this is NOT TRUE!

They have one building up! We need HELP NOW!

Please sign this petition to show your support that the neighborhood of Mattapan, the abutters, and the residents of Boston should have a say in how they want their neighborhood to develop. We deserve answers on how this project went through!
