Housing In Wellesley: Our Past, Our Future, Our Values with TBE Online

  • Thursday, January 14
  • 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
  • Register
  • Program Leader: Jennifer Raitt, the Director of Planning and Community Development for the Town of Arlington, MA and Don McCauley, Wellesley's Planning Director

Join Jennifer Raitt and Don McCauley to discuss how Wellesley’s zoning created our desirable community but also contributes to Wellesley’s increasing lack of affordability. How can we ensure that Wellesley’s housing supports our values? What action steps can we take to allow a greater diversity of people to call Wellesley their home.

Jennifer Raitt has served local, regional, state and national housing, community development and planning organizations, and she recently became a Climate Reality Leaer with the Climate Reality Project. Don McCauley has served Wellesley as a Selectman, Town Moderator, and is of counsel with McCauley Lyman, LLC, a firm specializing in renewable energy law.

This event is co-sponsored by Building a Better Wellesley, TBE Racial Justice, Sustainable Wellesley, World of Wellesley, Wellesley Council on Aging, Wellesley Village Church, St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Affordable Wellesley and UU Wellesley Hills. It is free and open to the public. See the flyer here for more information.
