MetroCommon 2050 Community Listening Session @ Castle Island Brewing Company
Jan 30 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Open House-style community event at Castle Island Brewing in Norwood!

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

Your community is working with the region to plan a better future – together. We need you to tell us what you want the region to be like, long term.

The brewery is dog- and kid-friendly, so bring your furry friends along with the rest of the family! The listening session is Open House-style, so drop in any time between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.! Light refreshments will be served.

RSVPs are encouraged so we have a rough head count. RSVP here: https://mapc.ma/CommListeningSession2

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.

Envision Duxbury: Final Community Forum @ Duxbury Free Library, Merry Room
Mar 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

DUXBURY – Do you live in Duxbury? Are you interested in helping to craft a vision for the community’s future? Now is your chance to weigh in on the town’s draft master plan!

Join us for a public forum on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 in the Merry Room of the Duxbury Free Library, located at 77 Alden St., to help put the finishing touches on the town’s next master plan, “Envision Duxbury.” The event will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and is free and open to all.

RSVP for the forum online at envisionduxbury.mapc.org.

Envision Duxbury is a comprehensive master plan being developed to guide the future stewardship and economic development of the town, using goals and ideas generated by local community members.

Thousands of residents have offered input via survey, text message, and at public meetings since late 2017 when the project kicked off. The plan has been a collaborative effort of the Duxbury Planning Board, town Planning Director, and a group of dedicated local “Master Plan Ambassadors” have been working with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) in Boston. MAPC is the regional planning agency serving Duxbury and 100 other cities and towns across Greater Boston.

During the course of the Envision Duxbury process, residents of all ages, business owners, elected and appointed representatives, and others in town have had the chance to weigh in on important issues facing Duxbury, including housing, arts & culture, open space, recreation, sustainability, development, transportation, infrastructure, and zoning. This last community meeting will bring together the goals and strategies for each element of the master plan so the public can give feedback and share their priorities before the final plan is compiled and refined. Once community input is synthesized and the top priorities emerge, planners will share a final document this spring with a full draft plan expected by June.

For more information, visit envisionduxbury.mapc.org and on the “Envision Duxbury” tab on the town’s website, or by contacting MAPC Project Manager Josh Fiala at jfiala@mapc.org or 617-933-0760.

Questions or special need? Please reach out to Duxbury Town Planner Valerie Massard at massard@town.duxbury.ma.us or 781-934-1100 x5476.
