CPTC Workshop: Adopting and Revising Rules & Regulations of Boards @ Zoom Webinar
Dec 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Citizen Planner Training Collaborative E-Workshop: The session will cover which types of zoning, non-zoning, and subdivision rules and regulations are mandatory and which are voluntary; describe what they can and cannot cover; and explain how they get adopted and amended. The regulatory framework for establishing fees and using consultants will also be discussed.
Learn how such documents serve as an important source of authority for boards, and how they can make life easier for board members and applicants by providing a clear road map for a fair and predictable process.
Registrants will receive the Zoom link the day before the workshop! Please reach out to me at kmilchman@mapc.org with any questions or concerns.

Webinar: Pool Testing for COVID-19 @ Zoom Conference
Dec 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Learn more about COVID-19 pool testing efforts underway in the region!
What is pool testing?
“Pool testing”—batching samples together and retesting individually if a result is positive—is a way for municipalities and schools to work together to provide regular, frequent, and cost-effective COVID-19 testing.
In this webinar, we’ll learn about the pool testing program led by Tufts University and the cities of Somerville and Medford; and hear about local pool testing programs in Salem and Wellesley.
Speakers will share more about how they started their pool testing efforts, lessons learned, and what you should know if you’re interested in setting up a pool testing program.

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
