Charles W. Eliot II Scholarship

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council annually presents a scholarship award in memory of Charles W. Eliot II. Mr. Eliot was an advocate of local planning as part of regional cooperation, and he was especially interested in land use planning as it affected transportation (coordination of trains, buses, cars, bicycles, and pedestrians), the need for communities to balance residential, business and open space, and the role of planning to solve modern problems (like today’s climate change). This scholarship is open to any senior in a secondary school in the 101 cities and towns of the MAPC region, who is planning to further his/her/their education in these fields. A cash prize of at least $500 will be awarded in the form of a scholarship to the school of the recipient's choice.

2019 Application

If you would like more information about this award, please feel free to contact Heidi Anderson at MAPC at the address shown above or by phone at (617) 933-0764.

The deadline for 2019 applications is May 10, 2019. Seniors planning to attend college with an interest in these fields are welcome to apply.

Award will be made May 29, 2019 at the MAPC Annual Meeting (to which the winning student is cordially invited to attend).

Request for Proposals (RFP): A Sketch Transportation Accessibility Modeling Tool for Transit Planning in Metro Boston

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (“MAPC”) is issuing a “Request for Proposals” (“RFP”) for a consultant to provide a sketch transportation modeling tool to evaluate changes in destination accessibility and travel patterns associated with various transportation and land use alternatives for a major redevelopment site in the Boston region’s inner core. The provided tool should be able to efficiently produce modeling results for multiple scenarios based on changing assumptions about the scale, location, mix, and form of future development; the routes, speed, and frequency of future transit services; and the nature of transportation demand management policies put into place.

The application of the tool will ultimately inform the planning of new transportation investments and land use policies by prioritizing options that should be subject to more detailed analysis and modeling. The sketch modeling tool is intended to complement the region’s existing travel demand model operated by the Central Transportation Planning Staff. While the first application will be for the West Station Area Transit Study, MAPC seeks a tool with transparent, state-of-practice methods that can be transferred to other study areas in the region as the need arises.

A notice regarding the “Sketch Transportation Accessibility Modeling Tool” RFP may be downloaded here. Please direct any questions about this RFP to Steve Gehrke at sgehrke@mapc.org. Submissions are due on March 15, 2019 at 5:00pm ET and should be submitted by email to Steve Gehrke at sgehrke@mapc.org
