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

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.

COVID-19-related unemployment could cause a massive housing crisis in Massachusetts. 468,000 Massachusetts residents filed unemployment claims in the first three weeks of the COVID crisis.
Who has been laid off? How many are now at risk of eviction or foreclosure? Will CARES Act assistance help? What about those who don’t qualify for federal aid? Join MAPC staff for a virtual discussion of our research brief, “The COVID-19 Layoff Housing Gap.”
On April 21, MAPC is releasing an update to “The COVID-19 Layoff Housing Gap” with the latest unemployment data.
At this webinar on April 22, MAPC Data Services Director Tim Reardon and Socioeconomic Analyst II Sarah Philbrick will discuss the updated data–and what it means for workers, municipalities, and the Commonwealth.
