2020 Charles W. Eliot II Scholarship Application

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. The deadline for 2020 applications is April 15, 2020. Seniors planning to attend college with an interest in these fields are welcome to apply.

Profile and Detail Form

Request for Information: Bike Share and Other Micromobility Services for the North Shore

MAPC is issuing this Request for Information (“RFI”) for Bike Share and Other Micromobility Services for the North Shore. MAPC, the regional planning agency serving the people who live and work in the 101 cities and towns of Metro Boston, works to promote smart growth and regional collaboration. Bike share plays an important role in advancing local mobility goals, promoting regional cycling connections, and offering an alternative to car travel.

MAPC has long played a role supporting regional bike share among our cities and towns, and we most recently have been working in close collaboration with a group of communities on the North Shore interested in pursuing regional bike share (with some municipalities potentially interested in additional micromobility services). Given vast changes within the industry in recent years, the purpose of this RFI is to gather the most up-to-date information about bike share and other micromobility options available to cities and towns and make an informed decision about how to effectively pursue regional bike share. Please note while this RFI is intended for the North Shore, other suburban communities in the MAPC region are also interested in learning more about bike share options that may be available.

Responses must be submitted via email to Kasia Hart (khart@mapc.org) by 5PM EST on Friday, November 22nd. MAPC will hold a one-hour vendor conference call on Wednesday, November 13th from 11AM-12PM EST. This conference call will be an opportunity for vendors to ask MAPC questions about the RFI process. All questions and responses will be shared with the full list of vendors. Conference call information will be shared prior to the 13th.

Questions about this RFI should be directed to Marjorie Weinberger, Procurement Services Manager and Senior Counsel, at mweinberger@mapc.org
