Date and Time



Hibernian Hall

184 Dudley St

Boston, MA 02119


Announcement: Mayor Martin J. Walsh will now be joining us to speak about our shared challenges and opportunities. The Listening Session now includes a speaking portion and Q&A beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Tell us what you want for the region's future at an open house expo for MetroCommon 2050.

Some issues are bigger than any 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 a drop-in, interactive, expo-style listening session. No lectures, no presentations - but there will be displays and activities about the region, and interesting ways for you to tell us what you care about.

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

An address and Q&A featuring Mayor Walsh will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Free of charge
