What is the South Shore Coalition?

The South Shore Coalition subregion comprises 13 towns on the South Shore within the metropolitan Boston area. The towns are Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, Hanover, Hingham, Holbrook, Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, Rockland, Scituate and Weymouth. 

The South Shore Coalition (SCC) consists of member positions, one for each of the 13 municipalities.
