The Valley Breeze: Council hears concerns on neighborhood stabilization district

PAWTUCKET - Some of those who turned out last week for a hearing on a new district designed to prevent forcing residents out due to higher housing costs said the proposal doesn't go far enough to protect those who live here.

Planning Director Sue Mara told the council that the proposed Neighborhood Stabilization Overlay District ordinance for the area around a coming new commuter rail station at 258 Pine St. seeks to prevent displacement of current residents while promoting investment in new affordable housing, creating a healthy mix of incomes.

All in attendance at the Sept. 25 hearing seemed to agree that no one wants to see Pawtucket residents priced out of the area and Boston commuters take their place.
