What is it?
The Metro North Land Use Priority Plan is a regional-level planning study created as a collaboration between the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, municipal officials, local planners, as well as various local and regional stakeholders. The Plan identifies: 1) Priority Areas for Development (PDAs) and Preservation (PPAs) at a local, regional and state level, and 2) opportunities to support the infrastructure, zoning and permitting necessary to help advance the goals of the Plan.
