Community Listening Session @ Memorial Building - Nevins Hall
Feb 28 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Some issues are bigger than one neighborhood, city, or town. Transportation, housing, climate, jobs, equity, and more.

That’s why your community is part of Greater Boston’s next long-term regional plan, MetroCommon 2050, which is now being developed.

The first step is for us to learn what you think. What you want the region to be like, long term.

Please join us for this drop-in, interactive, expo-style listening session. No lectures, no presentations. Displays and activities about the region and interesting ways for you to tell us what you care about.

For interpretation and other accommodations, please contact Iolando Spinola at 617.933.0713 by Feb. 21.

Registration is encouraged so we have a rough head count, but not required.

Join the City of Cambridge, MAPC, our partners, and other members of the public for a forum on autonomous vehicles (AVs).

Pre-registration is appreciated, but not required.

The City of Cambridge has begun the process of creating a Future of Mobility Implementation Blueprint to help prepare for and shape new mobility options in a way that meets our community goals, meets the mobility needs of all people who live in, work in, and visit Cambridge, and is well integrated with our sustainable transportation system. This forum is an opportunity for you to:

  • learn about the role of the Local, State, and Federal government in managing AVs,
  • hear from researchers who are thinking about the interactions between AVs and people, and
  • engage with the people behind the technology to gain a better understanding of the state of the technology, plans for the future, and challenges.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Joseph E. Barr | Director | Cambridge Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department
  • Susanne Rasmussen | Director of Environmental and Transportation Planning | Cambridge Community Development Department
  • Alison Felix | Senior Transportation Planner and Emerging Technologies Specialist | Metropolitan Area Planning Commission
  • Bryan Reimer | Research Scientist | MIT AgeLab
  • Ryan Jacobs | Director, Boston Operations | nuTonomy

This event is hosted by the City of Cambridge in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission.
