CNC created a survey for City Council candidates in an effort to better understand their positions on issues of importance to nonprofit leaders in our city. The survey questions were drafted with feedback from CNC member organizations and guidance from the CNC steering committee. Read the responses here.
Earlier this month, the Cambridge City Council voted to table the 100% Affordable Housing Overlay petition, ending the discussion on this important proposal this council term. CNC is disappointed that the council was unable to pass the overlay, which was aimed at helping affordable housing developers create new affordable units more quickly, more cost effectively, and in areas where there are fewer affordable housing options for residents.
