MAPC invites you to join us for this exciting MetroCommon 2050 Speaker Series event featuring keynote speaker Henry Grabar.

Event Program:

  • Keynote address by Henry Grabar; Slate staff writer, author (Paved Paradise: How Parking Explains the World), and a Loeb Fellow at the Harvard School of Design
  • Panel of municipal planners will discuss how they are taking on the issue of the “perfect parking space”, and advancing sustainable and equitable housing and transportation options.

As cities and towns work to comply with the MBTA Communities Act, this event will focus on how to “right-size” parking for your community while managing this political issue and promoting healthy neighborhoods that are economically vibrant, equitable, and sustainable by design.

DLTA is a unique program in the state budget that enables MAPC and our sister regional planning agencies in Massachusetts to provide cities and towns with the technical assistance they need to take on necessary projects which they don’t have the capacity to address on their own, and to partner with neighboring communities to tackle shared projects with reduced administrative burden.  

DLTA Day is your chance to learn more about this critical program which helps all of our communities plan for and implement a better future.

Learn more about DLTA and MAPC’s Fiscal Year 2025 (FY25) request for an increase of $3.4 million in funding for the program.
