Metropolitan Area Planning Council

Please describe the nature of the business or organization
MAPC is the Regional Planning Agency (RPA) serving the people who live and work in metropolitan Boston. Our strategic priorities are sustainable development and preservation, regional collaboration among municipalities and other stakeholders, climate mitigation and resilience, and advancing equity – especially racial equity – throughout our region.  We are guided by our regional plan, MetroCommon2050, which was adopted in 2021 after a 3-year planning process. MAPC’s staff includes approximately 100 full-time employees located in downtown Boston in a transit-accessible and bike-friendly office. MAPC operates as a hybrid workspace, with staff combining time in the office with remote work. 
MAPC strongly supports the professional development of each and every staff person, believing their growth to be consistent with the best interests of MAPC and the region. We encourage all our staff to develop new ideas to make MAPC’s planning and policy work more relevant and impactful, and to adapt to changing times.
