Webinar: International Energy Conservation Code Adoption Process and Impact @ Online
Jun 18 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
MAPC will be hosting a webinar on Monday, June 18, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM that will focus on connecting municipalities to the power of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) adoption process. As the new IECC will largely be adopted by Massachusetts, the energy provisions included in the IECC have a substantial impact on the MA state building code and climate change more broadly. Municipalities can register to vote on the IECC, and empower important clean energy code updates to gain adoption. The webinar will feature Bill Fay of the Energy Efficient Codes Coalition (EECC) and Ian Finlayson of the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Energy Efficiency Division.
Register for the webinar here.

Community Listening Session @ Memorial Building - Nevins Hall
Feb 28 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Some issues are bigger than one neighborhood, city, or town. Transportation, housing, climate, jobs, equity, and more.

That’s why your community is part of Greater Boston’s next long-term regional plan, MetroCommon 2050, which is now being developed.

The first step is for us to learn what you think. What you want the region to be like, long term.

Please join us for this drop-in, interactive, expo-style listening session. No lectures, no presentations. Displays and activities about the region and interesting ways for you to tell us what you care about.

For interpretation and other accommodations, please contact Iolando Spinola at 617.933.0713 by Feb. 21.

Registration is encouraged so we have a rough head count, but not required.
