Economic Development Listening Sessions

  • 25 Jun 2015
  • various

The Baker Administration will hold 6 concurrent listening sessions next Thursday, June 25th in preparation for a new statewide Economic Development Plan.  The sessions will be held at the following locations:


1)      Quinsigamond Community College, 670 W. Boylston Street, Worcester

2)      Quincy College, North Tower, Presidents Place Conference Center, 1250 Hancock St, Quincy

3)      North Shore Community College, 300 Broad Street, Lynn

4)      Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Road, West Barnstable

5)      Federal Building, 50 Kearney Square, Lowell

6)      UMass Center, Tower Square, 1500 Main Street, Springfield

The sessions will run from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. except for the one in Springfield which will start at 12:30 p.m.

APA-MA, MAPD and many allied organizations are working on bringing zoning reform and other planning issues to the attention of the new administration, through meetings and preparation of a white paper, but for those not attending the conference in Saratoga Springs here is a chance to take advantage of the administration reaching out to the public (I think a benefit of having EOHED led by two former municipal officials in Jay Ash and Carolyn Kirk.)

You will be asked to pick one of 6 concurrent roundtable discussion topics:
Preparing Communities for Success
Fostering a Culture of Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Sector Strategies
Competitiveness and Regulations
Talent Retention and Workforce Development
Housing Development
