Roles of the MMOC

The Muddy River Restoration Project Maintenance and Management Oversight Committee (the MMOC) serves as the formal vehicle for public participation in the Muddy River Project. Its responsibilities are varied.

  • Review all aspects of design and permitting, both for the restoration and for other development projects in the Project area.
  • Provide independent, ongoing independent monitoring of construction activities to ensure compliance with Project environmental certificates and permits.
  • Focus on the long-term sustainability of the Project and strives to uphold Olmsted’s vision for the Emerald Necklace in the decades to come.
  • Promote coordination and communication among the public project partners regarding maintenance and management activities.

The MMOC is funded by the City of Boston, the Town of Brookline, and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).

Members of the public are invited to attend MMOC meetings, which take place on the second Wednesday of each month from 6-7:30 pm.

Due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, all meetings will be held by video conference until further notice.
