The Massachusetts Association of Regional Planning Agencies (MARPA) is your resource for getting involved in land use, transportation, GIS, environmental and economic issues across the Commonwealth. We are the thirteen Regional Planning Agencies that guide policies and deliver technical assistance, coordinating the work of our member communities and serving as regional representatives to our federal, state and other governmental partners. Since 1979, MARPA has worked effectively with legislators, municipal officials, and advocates to innovate in the delivery of municipal public services and adopt planning best practices.
We encourage you to use this website to find answers or leads to additional information on the planning issues that you are interested in.
