The Patrick-Murray Administration's Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development is partnering with Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the MetroWest Regional Collaborative, the 495/MetroWest Partnership, and Mass Audubon to engage the 495/MetroWest region and surroundings area in preparing a comprehensive land use and development plan.
The plan will identify priority development and preservation areas and significant transportation and infrastructure investments for the region.
The planning process will include asking what transportation needs should be addressed, where open space should be preserved, and how to ensure continued economic prosperity in the region.
The public is invited to contribute to the vision for the 495/Metrowest region at two upcoming public forums:
Wednesday, June 15, Westborough High School, 90 West Main Street
Tuesday, June 21, Boxborough Holiday Inn, 242 Adams Place
Each forum includes an Open House, 5:00-7:00 p.m. followed by a Public Meeting, 7:00-9:15 p.m.
You may RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
