Regional Economic Development Planning Session Coming to WPI on May 22
WPI will host the Central Massachusetts Regional Economic Development Planning Session on Monday, May 22nd at 11:00am These meeting are part of the 2023 Massachusetts Economic Development Planning Council.
Over the course of the next several months, the Economic Development Planning Council will work to set long term goals, measurable benchmarks, and propose major economic development initiatives to guide Massachusetts’ economic development policy over the next four years. These engagement sessions will be an integral part of this work as we seek to collect public input and feedback this spring and summer relative to the state’s economic development needs and opportunities.
The session is open to the public and will allow residents, municipal leaders, businesses, and organizations from the Worcester area to engage with state officials in the process of developing the economic plan, policy, and strategy for our state. At each session, we will have breakout tables to collect input in the general areas of:
1) Business Climate; 2) Community and Neighborhood Development; 3) Key Clusters and Innovation; 4) Workforce and Talent; and 5) Equity and Opportunity.
