What is Multi-family Zoning?

The MBTA Communities law requires 177 municipalities in the Greater Boston area to confirm that they have a zoning district of reasonable size where multi-family housing (3+ units) is zoned for by-right. Needham does not currently comply with the law, and the Town’s zoning must be revised to meet the new requirements.
