Meeting Agenda TBD
Don’t miss this first event in MAPC’s MetroCommon Speaker Series! Join us for an invigorating lecture and discussion with the nationally-renowned Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law, about how government-imposed segregation laid the groundwork for today’s racial divisions in cities and suburbs, alike.
Open House-style community event at Castle Island Brewing in Norwood!
Some issues are bigger than one neighborhood, city, or town: 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.
The brewery is dog- and kid-friendly, so bring your furry friends along with the rest of the family! The listening session is Open House-style, so drop in any time between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.! Light refreshments will be served.
RSVPs are encouraged so we have a rough head count. RSVP here: https://mapc.ma/CommListeningSession2

After regular community updates, NSPC members will hear from Katharine Lacy at the Massachusetts Housing Partnership and Maritza Crossen at the Citizens’ Housing & Planning Association about monitoring affordable units and potential TA opportunities around affordable housing. We will also be joined by Laurie Stanton from the Metro North Regional Housing Services Office that monitors affordable units and provides support for the towns of Reading, North Reading, Wilmington and Saugus.
