  1. This brings up a good point about toeing the line between creating new infrastructure that adapts to the unhoused crisis and allows for rent-controlled or social housing while also ensuring that the new infrastructure is not driving up prices and displacing the community that makes up a neighborhood. This is something that there’s no clear answer on how to do, but it sounds like in the case of Boston, we need to have more infrastructure to be able to house people in the first place.
