Quotes

Enrico Moretti of UC-Berkeley: “Economic research on this topic is unanimous. There is no question that on net, adding more units tends to lower rents.” It is a regional problem and we need our neighboring towns to add their fair share of housing.

The Harvard Crimson Twenty-Two to Vie for City Council Seats in November

Adriane B. Musgrave — a second time challenger who ran in the 2017 election — said affordable housing is the most important issue the city faces. She said housing costs and accessibility were one of the reasons she decided to run.

“With the booming economy that we have, the problem is that many people are left out of the opportunity of living in Cambridge,” she said.

The Harvard Crimson Adriane Musgrave (Profile)

I think the three things that I talk a lot about are we need to look all across the city and strategically add density where possible. You know, as density is diversity and the opportunity of living in our city is so high, and so we need a citywide affordable housing overlay. We need to explore property tax reduction for residents who offer below-market rates and explore the use of our parking lots for middle income housing. We need to take a good hard look at our zoning code to reform it so that it's more equitable for our affordable housing groups.

In Cambridge we already have a medicinal marijuana shop. Not many communities have that, not many communities have a needle exchange. Again forward-thinking public health and forward-thinking sort of community needs or wants is something that I think we do pretty well at. So I'd like to see it possible here in Cambridge—I don't think we should exclude it, I also don't think we wanted to become ever-present all throughout the city.

Scout Cambridge City Council Candidate Profiles, Group 2 of 5

What are three specific new programs or changes you would make if elected?

1) Advocate for a city-wide affordable housing overlay, which would enable us to create more housing units across the city and help address housing affordability. Our city staff is prepared to work on a plan; we need our city council to begin this discussion.
