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.

To preserve our communities and create opportunity for future generations, we must eliminate carbon emissions and green our cities and towns. We also must advance equity, resilience, public health, and economic growth.
How do we align those critical needs for mutual benefit? That’s the question the MAPC Clean Energy Forum will dig into on December 11. Join us!
Light breakfast and beverages will be served. Further event details to come!
