Belmont and the MAPC, the regional planning agency for Greater Boston, and Metro West Collaborative Development, will investigate updating the town’s current Housing Production Plan (HPP) and launch a preliminary visioning process that will likely inform a future Comprehensive Plan.

As an early step in the planning process, Belmont and MAPC will use the forum to introduce the project team, review the HPP process, and discuss current housing needs and context. The event will be held in hybrid format to engage as many residents as possible.
