About MetroCommon 2050

MetroCommon 2050 is Greater Boston’s next long-range regional plan - a set of actions that local and state government can take to improve the region over time.

MetroCommon will focus on challenges and opportunities that are bigger than any one place. And it will look at how those issues are connected.
