Will Cohen for Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council
Will Cohen seeks election to another term as an at-large member. He believes that new construction of multifamily housing is needed to address Boston’s housing crisis and historic segregation patterns from redlining. He values the walkable, bikeable, and transit-accessible qualities of Jamaica Plain and hopes to see the JPNC work proactively to help the neighborhood build upon its strengths. Originally from North Carolina, he is an urban planner at the design firm Utile, where he works on citywide, zoning, and housing plans across New England, he teaches at Boston College, and he lives on Walk Hill Street with his family.
