Planning for Section 3A Success: Leveraging the District Suitability Analysis Tool

Please join us for this webinar to learn more about a new MAPC Section 3A decision-making support tool! 

Background
In 2021, the Massachusetts Legislature added a new section to the state’s Zoning Act (MGL Chapter 40A) — MBTA Communities Multifamily Zoning Requirement (Section 3A) — that requireseachmunicipalityin the MBTA districttozone for by-right multifamily housingnear transit stations or smart growth locations. 

MAPC has developed an interactive MBTA Communities Multifamily Zoning Requirement (Section 3A) District Suitability Analysis Tool to help municipalities within the MAPC region identify locations for 3A zoning districts that also advance regional and local goals.
