The Massachusetts Alliance of HUD Tenants will hold a rally in support East Canton who are now contending with luxury development in their neighborhood  on Saturday, Oct. 9, at 11 a.m. at 79 East Canton St. (off Harrison, near Cathedral

According to MAHT, “Leggat and McCall, the developers of The Smith, have violated their written Agreements with East Canton Street residents to provide community outdoor space, save the trees, rebuild neighborhood sidewalks, and secure resident parking.”

Furthermore, the group attests that “low-income neighbors are barred by an iron gate from use of a courtyard or a rooftop swimming pool” while “a promised public outdoor area is now a toilet for Smith residents’ dogs.”

The rally, which includes a performance by the Extraordinary Rendition Band,  will call for developers and the city  to “pause” on  the construction or more luxury, high-rise buildings until the city releases a comprehensive plan to build truly affordable housing for Boston residents.
