Repeal Section 548!

Why We Should Repeal Section 548!

• It takes away traditional rights of communities.

• It promotes sprawl, overdevelopment and high-cost

• It sabotages local planning for open space,affordable
housing, and traffic reduction.

• It bypasses democratic processes and legislative accountability.

• It makes it difficult for communities to acquire land
needed for open space and affordable housing.

• The future of public open space should be determined
with full participation of the public.

Here’s what you can do:

• Write a Letter to Your Legislators and to the Romney

• Get your City Council or Board of Selectmen to take
a stand

• Submit a warrant Article to Your Town Meeting
