MetroCommon 2050: Greater Boston's Next Regional Plan


The Metropolitan Area Planning Council is now creating the next regional plan for Greater Boston and it's called MetroCommon 2050. It is a set of actions that local and state government can take to improve the region over time and is being built on a foundation of data, research, analysis, and explanation.

The plan will cover traffic congestion, the rising cost of housing, our changing climate, equity of wealth and health, and efficient government. A "digital hub" has been set up for residents to learn more about what it is, how to contribute and to attend various events. It will be updated frequently with information. Visit to learn more about the plan and approach, upcoming events, and how to provide your input.
