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.

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

Afternoon workshops led by senior administration officials and local leaders from across the Commonwealth provide the chance, among other things, to dive deeper into these funding opportunities, think through the challenges facing your community, and hear from other communities looking to work through those same challenges.

Finally, you’ll hear from former Baker Chief of Staff and Harvard Taubman Center Senior Fellow Steve Kadish about some of the most promising strategies for working with community members and stakeholders to make the local change that our communities need.

Workshop topics include:
