FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham City Council voted 10-1 tonight in favor of an apartment moratorium for less than a year.
The lone vote against was chair George P. King Jr., who is an at-large city councilor.
In March, more than 350 residents submitted a petition calling for a temporarily stop on construction of apartments and multi-family projects to study the impacts additional units have on municipal services, schools, and traffic.
The order now goes to Mayor Yvonne Spicer for her signature. She has 10 days to sign it or veto the legislative order. The City Council easily has the 2/3rd vote to override any veto with a 10-1 vote.
The City Council meeting is still taking place, so SOURCE will update this report with details on Wednesday.
