February 26th Meeting – Housing Density

WTPCC will host State Senator Scott Wiener, author of SB 827 who will speak about his proposed legislation and take questions. It’s possible that the WTPCC may discuss and take a position for or against this legislation. If you are a delegate and can’t make it, be sure to ask your alternate to attend. Senator Wiener’s legislation seeks to allow five- and eight-story buildings in neighborhoods that are traditionally single-family homes and two-unit duplexes, as long as they are within 1/2-mile of a major transit stop, or 1/4-mile of a high-quality transit corridor.
