Petitioning Mayor Thomas Menino and the Boston Redevelopment Authority

Halt the approval process for proposed luxury apartments in Jamaica Plain

Luxury housing (with rents for 1 bedroom apartments starting at $2200.00/month, minimum annual income needed: 115K/year), is incompatible with the community character and history of Jamaica Plain. This community embraces diversity, inclusion, and tolerance and any approval on the part of government decision makers for luxury housing for the exclusive enjoyment of the privileged few is inimical to long-held and cherished community standards and anathema to residents of Jamaica Plain.
