On June 25, Governor Charlie Baker’s Housing and Economic Development Secretary, Jay Ash, will be holding six input and listening sessions across the state as part of their Economic Development Plan Listening Tour. The tour aims to provide businesses, organizations, and residents an opportunity to help shape the Commonwealth’s economic development future. Let’s make sure arts, culture, and creativity are part of each roundtable discussion.
Massachusetts law requires the secretary of Housing and Economic Development to draft a comprehensive economic development plan within the first year of a new gubernatorial administration. These regional listening sessions begin a six-month economic development planning process and serve as a first step in drafting the statutorily required plan.
