The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is working with the Town of Winthrop to facilitate a public process for community input on how to develop a vision for the Town's future. The Winthrop community will have a chance to assess shorter-range quality of life and operational goals, as well as "big ideas" for potentially transformative initiatives in the future. The participation exercises will prioritize both of these types of ideas so that the Town can have a clear set of next steps.
