The Regional Plan, Imagine 2050 will align the region’s priorities to ensure a sustainable, equitable, and prosperous future. Designed to be implemented by town governments, developers, policymakers, non-profits, and residents alike; this plan imagines a region that works for everyone- and how to make it happen.

The CMMPO envisions Central Massachusetts in 2050 as a growing region of 40 well-connected, livable communities with congestion reduction, better multi-modal mobility, and improved air quality. Healthy, creative transportation methods that integrate active modes using technology will safely and efficiently move people between homes, jobs, and services and move goods between places of manufacturing and retail distribution.
