North Shore Community Listening Session @ Old Town Hall - Salem
Jan 8 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

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.

Can’t make it to this listening session? Watch the MetroCommon 2050 event page to learn about more: https://metrocommon.mapc.org/events

RSVPs are encouraged so we have a rough head count, but not necessary to come! RSVP here: mapc.ma/CommListeningSession1
