I’m very excited about how family-centered the city is becoming. There are a lot of new spaces that bring people together. Franklin Park is being activated. — Marisa Coleman Luse, Community Relations, Roxbury
We need more affordable housing. — Liza Behrendt, Fundraiser, Roslindale
There’s a lot of new development, but you have to ask who it’s for. It’s not for us. It’s for rich people. — Joseph Lewis, Painter, Roxbury
I like seeing new housing. I voted for Mayor Walsh. I’m happy to see him bring more black people into construction. — Everett Linton, Photographer, South End
Things are good, but there’s still a lot of homeless people and low-income people. They can’t keep putting up buildings that don’t include subsidized units. You have to think about everybody. — Denise, Home Health Aide, South End
It’s progress, but for whom? There’s new ideas, different proposals. You ask why people are building in the community and they say ‘There’s nothing here.’ There’s an entire culture here that could be moved away. — Ayanna Warfield, Chef, Roxbury
What do you think of the changes Boston is going through?
