4 Replies to “Off-Campus Students Drive Up Rents; City Council To Hold Hearing

  1. Have you heard that just because Boston is a college town it doesn't mean that everything is about students and that the North End and other NEIGHBORHOODS would be a disaster if families and others were driven out of the city and replaced by nothing but young students?

  2. It is families and professionals that stabilize neighborhoods. They are they ones getting involved in city and neighborhood commitees and civic groups and putting efforts into improvements.Who's obeying the trash regualtion? Planting the flowers? Keeping Christopher Columbus (another citiy parks) Park clean? Or voting in elections? Not the transient population of students.
    That is why, in part, it is neessary to make rentals affordable to the people who work and contribute to the city.
