On Boston Daily, I’ve blogged about why I’ve filed an amendment to a 2004 law that requires colleges and universities to gather addresses from their students to help Boston’s Inspectional Services Department to help enforce the city’s limit on how many undergraduates can live in one apartment. This amendment will require that colleges notify the ISD and students when they find more than four students in one unit. It will make it easier for the city to enforce the law, which will help cut down on the number of unsafe and unsanitary apartments in our communities. This law will also make those neighborhoods more livable for those who reside there now, and more available and affordable for those same college students after graduation.
As always, I welcome your comments here on Blue Mass Group, or on my website—www.mikerossboston.com.
