    600k for a condo, yikes!! I agree it isn’t APA purview, but even the greater Boston area is cheaper for what I imagine is the amount of space, and we’re *really* not a market you want to be compared to for lack of affordability. Didn’t whomever just won locally in LP for mayor or etc (apologies I don’t remember the election off the top of my head) promise to address this issue? The town may not have a lot of monetary incentive to mess around with these developers, but shame on them if over 300 units are built at that price point.
