MAPC Invites Residents to Planning Meeting
Wednesday, January 30, 2019, from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at Castle Island Brewing Co., 31 Astor Ave, Norwood, MA 02062.
Dear Mr. Peterson:
On behalf of MAPC, thank you for coming to the first TRIC/MetroCommon 2050 gathering on November 30th in Dedham.
During both the breakfast and lunch sessions, MAPC staff noted everyone’s comments and concerns, which are now being cataloged, categorized, and analyzed. This input, along with what we’re hearing from local officials and representatives from across the region, will be woven into the MetroCommon vision.
PLEASE SAVE THE DATE: Briefly referenced at the gathering, the next event where your community’s voice can be heard is planned for Wednesday, January 30, 2019, from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at Castle Island Brewing Co., 31 Astor Ave, Norwood, MA 02062. The event will be an open-house-style listening session for everyone: residents, the business community, non-profit organizations, etc. Please spread the word to your networks.
Additionally, as a local representative, please consider attending the first event in our MetroCommon Speaker Series: an invigorating lecture and discussion with the nationally-renowned Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law, on Thursday, January 24, 2019, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This should be of particular interest to local officials, as this topic is how government-imposed segregation laid the groundwork for today’s racial divisions in cities and suburbs, alike. Register here.
My best regards, and wishing you a Happy New Year,
