Government Affairs Forum: Regional Mayoral Panel on Transit and Housing

Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 7:45 AM - 9:15 AM

At the Chamber, we focus on policies that keep Greater Boston competitive for the long term. Two serious issues affecting our competitiveness include our region’s transportation infrastructure and the availability and cost of housing in Greater Boston. A reliable and thoughtfully planned transportation system that meets current and future demand will allow businesses in the region – and across the state – to grow. Affordable housing is also critical for attracting and retaining a talented workforce, our region’s competitive advantage.

On November 8, we will be convening a mayoral panel representing Braintree, Framingham, Lynn, and Newton. Three of these mayors are newly elected, two are the first mayors of their cities, and two are their cities’ first female mayors. This discussion will focus on both past and new regional ideas and efforts to promote workforce development and economic growth. The focus will be on regional economic development and tackling these challenges together.
