MAPC contributed to a report, the WalkUP Wake-Up Call Report, published by the Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis at George Washington University. The report found that the United States has hit our "peak sprawl," and there has been a shift towards urban, walkable communities versus drivable suburbs. Our Executive Director, Marc Draisen, recently spoke on WBUR about the report and it's implications on Boston's future.

MAPC is excited to announce that the Quincy City Council adopted our Bike and Pedestrian Network Plan! The plan seeks to connect transit stations, trails, parks, business districts, schools and more to make biking and walking stronger transportation options in the city. The plan relies heavily on existing infrastructure and short term, low cost solutions, such as road diets, to make roads more inclusive and less auto-dependent.
