MAPC recently conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) with the Oregon Public Health Insitute to help inform an update to HUD's designated housing rule. The rule allows housing authorities to allocate a certain number of public housing units to senior and disabled families.
The Health Impact Assessment looked at several factors, including accessibility and housing affordability, to analyze the rule and make recommendations to optimize the update's public health effects.
Today, we released our new report, "Putting Legacy First: Planning for the Boston 2024 Olympics," jointly with the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance and Transportation for Massachusetts. The report urges Olympic planners to "put legacy first." Read full report here.
From jobs, health, and equity along Chelsea's Silver Line to economic development in Duxbury, some of MAPC's most exciting recent work was highlighted during the Lightning Presentations given by staff members at today's Fall Council Meeting. See the presentations below, and please contact us for more information about the projects that might make a difference in your municipality.
