Developers are using the 40B provisions to run roughshod over local zoning. If a city/town needs to boost their number of affordable housing units, let the municipality decide where those units should be located.

I meant some of the referendum supporters have a moonbat tinge (I reread my earlier comment) — I’m suspicious of the “open space” argument thrown in with “affordable housing.” As I understand it (and I’m in Boston, where “open space” is basically the Common and Public Gardens, etc.), localities get money from the state to preserve open space, thus reducing housing and, as a natural consequence, “affordable” housing. I say “A pox on both their houses!”
