Webinar: MetroCommon 2050 Community Engagement Mini-Grants @ Webinar
Aug 30 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Help your community be part of MetroCommon 2050, Greater Boston’s next regional plan!

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is now accepting applications for the MetroCommon 2050 Outreach Mini-Grant Program. We will be accepting applications and awarding mini-grants on a rolling basis until December 2020 for outreach projects to be completed between now and Spring 2021.

The purpose of the MetroCommon 2050 mini-grants is to fund community partners to help us with outreach, events, and collecting input in harder-to-reach communities. Voices of people from those communities will be crucial in developing the plan content and shaping the future of our region. We want to hear from the region, and we are providing resources to those who will help us reach underserved populations.

MetroCommon 2050 is Greater Boston’s next regional plan, and the process of developing it is being led by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). MAPC is regional planning agency that serves the people who live and work in the 101 cities and towns of Metropolitan Boston.

Reflecting on the Future of Transportation Commission report and what lies ahead for the Commonwealth

Join us to hear members of the Commission, Mayor Kim Driscoll of Salem, and other transportation leaders reflect on the past year and consider what opportunities lie ahead to create a robust and resilient transportation system for the Commonwealth.
Coffee and networking will begin at 10:00 a.m., and the speaking portion will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Shared Streets: Looking Back, Looking Forward @ Zoom
Jan 12 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In 2020, cities and towns throughout Greater Boston re-imagined their public spaces, converting streets and sidewalks into spaces that would promote active transportation, social distancing, outdoor dining, multimodal transit, and safe exercise.

Now, in partnership with MassDOT and the Solomon Foundation, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council is inviting cities and towns to look back at their recently-completed shared streets projects.

Please join us next Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. for a panel discussion and Q&A on Shared Streets. Municipal representatives will reflect on the complex projects they undertook, share lessons learned, and look forward to what’s next.

PANELISTS INCLUDE:

  • Kate Fichter (moderator): Assistant Secretary for Policy Coordination, MassDOT
  • Wayne Feiden, FAICP: Director Planning & Sustainability, Northampton
  • Katrina O’Leary: Town Planner, Middleton
  • Police Chief Tom Galvin, Berlin
  • Ben Cares: Senior Planner and Project Manager, Chelsea

Municipal Webinar: Vaccine Distribution in Senior Subsidized Housing @ Zoom Conference
Feb 9 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Commonwealth recently announced that residents and staff of public and subsidized senior housing are eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations as part of the first tier of Phase II of the vaccine rollout. This step is anticipated to begin later this month.

With this opportunity comes the need to quickly arrange vaccination opportunities for some of state’s most vulnerable residents. This requires coordination among three groups: municipal officials and staff, including local boards of health; owners and managers of public and subsidized senior housing, including local housing authorities; and medical providers who can staff clinics and vaccinate residents.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 9 to learn how cities and towns can support vaccination in senior housing facilities.

Webinar speakers will include:
Robin Lipson, Deputy Secretary, Executive Office of Elder Affairs
Emily Cooper, Chief Housing Officer, Executive Office of Elder Affairs

There will be an opportunity to ask questions!

More information from the Commonwealth on COVID-19 vaccinations for senior housing setting is available here.
