Public Input Sought for Medfield Downtown Summit

Do you live or own a business in Medfield? Are you interested in helping to shape the community’s vision and strategy for economic development and growth in Medfield’s downtown?

Join the Economic Development Committee for the Town of Medfield and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) for a public “Open House” meeting on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 that will take place between the hours of 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Medfield Public Library located at 468 Main Street. The meeting will give the public an opportunity to identify strategies to increase the economic vitality and overall vibrancy of the downtown area.

The event will be an Open House between the hours of 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Participants can come between those hours at any time that is convenient. Expect to stay between 30 to 45 minutes.

Participants – residents, business owners, property owners, anyone interested in the downtown – will be able to voice opinions that will help MAPC and the Town develop and prioritize community and economic development goals and strategies for the downtown; take part in mapping and visual preference exercises that will help to prioritize potential opportunities for retail, housing or office development, as well as improved connections in and to the downtown; and view findings from the current conditions and market analysis report.

An overview presentation will kick off the event and will be replayed throughout the evening to accommodate attendee schedules.

Funding for the Medfield Downtown Summit is provided by the 2016 District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA) program enables MAPC to work with individual communities, or groups of communities, as we engage the public in responsible stewardship of our region’s future.
