Some issues are bigger than any one neighborhood, city, or town. And they’re bigger than the North Shore.
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.
MAPC is helping the people who live, work, and play in the Greater Boston region develop MetroCommon 2050, a long-range plan for their future.
This free event will be Open House-style: family-friendly, fun, and interactive! Drop in any time between 3 and 8 p.m. to tell learn more and tell us what you think. Light refreshments will be available.

MAPC is releasing new research that analyzed 27,000 flood claims from the historic March 2010 storms that dropped 18 inches of rain across Eastern Massachusetts. $59m in disaster assistance was paid out. We found that only 4% of disaster claims were located in FEMA 1% chance flood zones. With the prospect of more frequent and severe storms due to a changing climate, what can local, state, and the federal government do to better understand, prepare for, and minimize flooding and flood damage?
Presenters and panelists:
- Anne Herbst, Principal Environmental Planner – retired, MAPC
- Mia Mansfield, Director of Climate Adaptation and Resilience, MA Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
- Jason Mammone, P.E., Director of Engineering, Town of Dedham
- Van Du, Senior Environmental Planner, MAPC – Moderator
Following this event, all registrants will receive a copy of the report via email.
