Paige Roosa

Director of the Mayor's Housing Innovation Lab

Paige Roosa is the Director of the Mayor’s Housing Innovation Lab, the City’s space to test new approaches to housing policy and design to accelerate housing production and achieve affordability for all Bostonians. Having developed a strong connection to Boston’s North End as a young person before moving to the Boston suburbs, Paige is passionate about the ways in which land use regulation and housing policies influence access to economic opportunity, quality of life, and health outcomes.

Prior to joining the Housing Innovation Lab, Paige spearheaded the creation of a new housing stability department in Richmond, California, following passage of the Richmond Fair Rent, Just Cause for Eviction, and Homeowner Protection Ordinance by a majority of Richmond voters in 2016, and later served as a Senior Development Review Planner for the Santa Barbara County Planning and Development Department, where she managed regulatory review of residential, environmental, and institutional projects. She holds a Master of City Planning from the University of California, Berkeley and a Bachelor of Science in plant biology from Cornell University.
