As MAPC ramps up for our regional plan update process, we’re taking a hard last look at MetroFuture – and we need your input.
MetroFuture was Greater Boston’s long term regional plan, adopted in 2008. It included a vision for the future, 65 specific goals, and thirteen implementation strategies on topics that ranged from housing to transportation to health. The strategies were the action steps that would ensure that we meet our shared goals for the future. Today we’re asking you whether those implementation strategies were…well, implemented. We have tracked the strategies and are aware of many high profile actions that MAPC and others have taken, but our knowledge is incomplete.
For each strategy, we are asking you to please review our analysis of what was implemented and what wasn’t and then add your take. What critical policies, programs, or partnerships were established and why were they important? What didn’t get implemented and why? We’ll add relevant input to our analyses, and may get back to you for further detail if you give us permission to do so.
