Hasson Rashid's 2/27/17 Public Comment at Cambridge, Massachusetts City Hall!

Forcing Exclusionary Zoning Upon The Local Homelessness Sector and Mosaic is Discriminatory!

Peace and Sanity Be Unto You All, 2/27/2017
I’m Hasson Rashid, I reside at 820 Massachusetts Avenue, my public comment is on the following agenda items CMA I# 5; AWL I# 16-74; UB I# 9; AP I# 3; PORL I# 17,20; COF I#1;

On today's agenda there are noticeable references to several zoning policy related items. I go on record in disagreement with most of the zoning policy related items, because they are producing economic circumstances that are leaving poor peoples involuntarily homeless, by forcing exclusionary zoning upon them. Exclusionary zoning policy barriers should be removed. Most of today's zoning agenda items are discriminatory towards the homeless, and other poor minorities. These zoning policy implications and manipulations, are impediments to homeless, and other poor minorities in securing permanent shelter.

The homeless sector and mosaic, are economically excluded from certain areas of the city, through ordinances prohibiting construction of sociable homeless and poverty housing for them. The exclusionary zoning policies are playing their part in limiting housing opportunities for the homeless. Exclusionary zoning also prohibits the homeless and landowners, from bargaining for something that benefits both. Exclusionary zoning regulations show that instead of providing for the public welfare, it has done well for the private welfare of the well to do, thus producing the discriminatory effect of exclusionary zoning and policy, on the homelessness sector an mosaic.

Discrimination on the basis of poverty is pernicious in municipal zoning, not just because it is official discrimination, but because municipal land-use decisions, burden the homeless and other poor, who have no say in making those decisions. The homeless sector and mosaic have concrete claims against local zoning as it relates to zoning policies, in areas of the city such as Kendall Square, its Foundry Building, Sullivan Court House, Volpe Center areas, and so on, etc., because their rights to have sociable housing has been infringed upon in these and other areas of the city.

These agenda zoning items, and others bear no relationship to public health, safety, morals, or general welfare initiatives favorable towards the homelessness. I say stop zoning out the homeless sector and mosaic, and other poor peoples. Provide adequate housing for all categories of people, the city has a responsibility to do so. Exclusionary and restrictive zoning practices impedes access to permanent housing opportunities for the homeless sector and mosaic.

Yours In Peace and Sanity,
