This brown bag is an opportunity for municipalities to learn about resources available through the national SolSmart program. Seven MAPC communities recently received technical assistance from a SolSmart advisor to help them streamline their solar permitting and zoning and to reduce solar soft costs in their communities. You can find out more about SolSmart by visiting: https://www.solsmart.org/
This event will be hosted at MAPC. Please note that in case of a snow cancellation, we will host the brown bag on Thursday, January 25th instead.

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
