Smart Growth & Regional Collaboration
The Three Rivers Interlocal Council (TRIC) is one of MAPC’s eight subregions comprised of thirteen communities located southwest of Boston: Canton, Dedham, Dover, Foxborough, Medfield, Milton, Needham, Norwood, Randolph, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, and Westwood.
TRIC gets its name from the three major rivers in the sub-region: the Neponset, Charles, and Canoe River. The mission of TRIC is to support cooperative municipal planning that links the impacts of growth and development in each town to aggregate impacts felt throughout the region. TRIC meets monthly to review and discuss issues of inter-municipal significance. Participants at TRIC meetings can include Local Council Representatives, town planners, members of Boards of Selectmen and Planning Boards, Town Administrators, Chambers of Commerce, and interested citizen-planners. All meetings and events are open to the general public.
