Stop the auctions!

Repeal Section 548!



















Why We Should Repeal Section 548!



• It takes away traditional rights of communities.

• It promotes sprawl, overdevelopment and high-cost housing.


• 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 Administration.




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



• Submit a warrant Article to Your Town Meeting
