Beaches Commission to host public meeting at UMass Boston
On Saturday, February 1, 2014 the Metropolitan Beaches Commission will hold a public meeting at the UMass Boston Campus Center from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.
In the summer and fall of 2013, the Metropolitan Beaches Commission, in partnership with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay, held 10 public hearings at the Massachusetts State House and in Nahant, Lynn, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy, and Hull. Nearly 700 people participated in the hearings and scores more took part in an online survey.
Later this year the Commission will issue its final report. If you are able to attend the Feb. 1 meeting, please take a moment to RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone to 617-451-2860.
