The Massachusetts Permit Regulatory Office (MPRO) is now monitoring the progress of housing and economic development projects as they advance through Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) reviews and other State permitting processes.

Projects monitored by MPRO are either:

  • Commercial, industrial or mixed-use projects with a minimum 10,000 sf. increase in gross square footage
  • Residential projects involving the development of 50 or more new units and having an overall density of at least four units per acre.

MPRO periodically contacts the proponents of each of the monitored projects to assess their permitting progress and to act as a liaison with State and local government agencies.

If you are the proponent of a project that you feel should be added to our tracking system, or if you have questions about our permit tracking process, please contact Larry Field at
