How We'll Shape the Region Together
Phase 1: Vision and Groundwork
September 2018 – April 2019
Currently, in this phase, we are asking local and state leaders, residents, and commonly underrepresented groups about the future they want for Greater Boston. We will use that input and the common threads found in the local plans of forty of the region’s cities and towns to identify shared goals for the region’s future.
Phase Highlights so far
Establishment of the External Advisory Committee (EAC)
The External Advisory Committee will advise the Core Team on the process, content and community engagement of MetroCommon 2050. Members will act as a sounding board for the regional plan update by providing diverse perspectives, feedback, and advice to the core team on topic areas. The Committee will make sure that MetroCommon 2050 is not in an echo chamber by testing ideas and supporting outreach efforts.
