Metropolitan Area Planning Council 

Some issues are bigger than one neighborhood, city, or town: Transportation, housing, climate, jobs, equity, and more.

That's why your community is part of Greater Boston's next long-term regional plan, MetroCommon 2050, which is now being developed.

The first step is for us to learn what you think. What you want the region to be like, long term.

Please join us for this drop-in, interactive, expo-style listening session. We'll have displays and activities about the region and interesting ways for you to tell us what you care about.

New! Speaking portion and Q&A featuring Mayor Martin J. Walsh

The speaking portion of the event will start at 5:30 p.m. Mayor Walsh will discuss our shared challenges and opportunities and the need for cities and towns to work together to confront them.

This Listening Session will also include the MAPC Council Meeting, which will take place from 4 to 4:30.

For interpretation and other accommodations, please contact Iolando Spinola at 617.933.0713.

Free of charge
