Join us in a discussion with our hosts around the role of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) in its efforts in helping local governments develop housing production plans. Learn about how cities in Massachusetts are working to meet their housing needs, how area demands change from city to city, and what MAPC is doing to help local municipalities identify housing trends in their communities.
