The Massachusetts Coastal Coalition (MCC), in partnership with the Town of Marshfield, was to host a public meeting regarding flood map change on Thursday, March 19th, 2020 at Furnace Brook Middle School Auditorium.

MCTV will broadcast the sessions live on Comcast 15/Verizon 35 and on the MCTV streaming channel found on www.marshfieldtv.org.  MCTV will also re-air the sessions, place them on the MCTV Video on Demand Platform and the Vimeo Government Archive.
