Last week, the town of Milton voted down a zoning plan that would have brought it into compliance with the MBTA Communities Law, which requires communities located on or near the T to create new districts in which multifamily housing can be built by right. In response, the Healey administration announced that it's pulling thousands of dollars in state grant funding. Attorney General Andrea Campbell has vowed to respond as well, and asserted that compliance with the law is not optional.

What's Milton's next move? And whatever the answer, is there any common ground that might allow the opposing sides in last week's vote to collaborate moving forward? Adam Reilly discusses with Denny Swenson, one of the leaders of the "No" campaign, and Tom Callahan, one of the leaders of the "Yes" campaign.
