The lawsuit inspired a Boston zoning code amendment by District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley and District 8 City Councilor Kenzie Bok to remove parking
minimums for affordable residential developments where at least 60% of the units are income-restricted at 100% Area Median Income (AMI) or below.
