Help your community be part of MetroCommon 2050, Greater Boston’s next regional plan!

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is now accepting applications for the MetroCommon 2050 Outreach Mini-Grant Program. We will be accepting applications and awarding mini-grants on a rolling basis until December 2020 for outreach projects to be completed between now and Spring 2021.

The purpose of the MetroCommon 2050 mini-grants is to fund community partners to help us with outreach, events, and collecting input in harder-to-reach communities. Voices of people from those communities will be crucial in developing the plan content and shaping the future of our region. We want to hear from the region, and we are providing resources to those who will help us reach underserved populations.

MetroCommon 2050 is Greater Boston’s next regional plan, and the process of developing it is being led by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). MAPC is regional planning agency that serves the people who live and work in the 101 cities and towns of Metropolitan Boston.

POSTPONED: MAPC Winter Council Meeting @ atac
Mar 10 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am
POSTPONED: MAPC Winter Council Meeting @ atac | Framingham | Massachusetts | United States

NOTICE OF POSTPONEMENT

Dear Friends of MAPC:

Out of an abundance of caution, MAPC has decided to postpone the Winter Council Meeting scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, March 10) in Framingham.  Over the next few days, we will assess the situation and decide how to reschedule the Council Meeting and Legislative Panel on Housing, Transportation, and Climate.  We will consider rescheduling as a virtual event, which will provide Council members and allies the opportunity to learn the latest about what is going on at the State House, without having to participate in a crowded event that might make some people uncomfortable.

I realize we sent out a note earlier this morning reminding people about the Council Meeting, and I apologize if this update causes any confusion.  Still, we feel the wisest course is to postpone the meeting, and to reschedule in a different format.

Please stay tuned, and stay safe!

Best regards,

Marc Draisen

Executive Director
