City of Worcester vs.College Hill Properties LLC upheld on appeal

The sagacious court found, “we have no doubt that four or more unrelated adults, sharing housing while attending college, is not an arrangement that lends itself to the formation of a stable and durable household.” Indeed.

  1. In Boston the city thrives because they are academic friendly. More disposable income is spent there per student than in Worcester. Boston’s # on this is 4.

    Worcester prevails as the state’s leader in anti-college, anti-student atmosphere.
