Multifamily Zoning for MBTA Communities Passes!

Thanks to your help, Arlington’s MBTA Communities Plan, Warrant Article 12, passed at the Special Town Meeting! It received resounding approval, passing by 189-35.

We’d like to express our gratitude to everyone who put a sign in their yard, signed our petition, handed out flyers, contacted their Town Meeting Member and came to our rallies outside Town Hall. It’s because of your volunteer work that this warrant article passed by such a wide margin. Thank you for everything you did to bring more housing to Arlington.
