Our dialogue series aims to cultivate conversations that explore affordable housing and community development planning issues.

Through the series, we invite productive discussion, and a safe space to express your opinions on topics you care about! Join us as we host the Metropolitan Area Planning Council’s Community Engagement team for a conversation about regional solutions to the housing crisis.  We’ll introduce you to MAPC’s regional plan, MetroCommon 2050, discuss the role that regionalism and collaboration can play in addressing Massachusetts’ ongoing housing crisis, and collectively explore solutions that draw on the Boston Region’s many different resources and strengths.
