MAPC Ride Series – Minuteman to Bruce Freeman to Assabet Trail Connections @ West Concord Commuter Rail Station
Aug 16 @ 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Meeting at West Concord commuter rail station at 3pm

The Minuteman, Bruce Freeman, and Assabet Trails are close to being built out in this area.  They come close together but do not connect. This ride will scope out potential routes of future trails that can connect these.  The ride will be a loop taking in a newly completed section of the Bruce Freeman and well as Assabet Rail Trails. There is about a mile of wide packed dirt trail, so 32mm+ tires recommended.

Leaders – David Loutzenheiser and Jeff Collins

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.
