What is Economic Development?
The term “Economic Development” has been used in discussions of schools, funding municipal services, and the kinds of building we want to occur in the City. But what do we mean by Economic Development anyway? And how do all of these issues come together into a policy that encourages responsible development in balance with other community goals?
Join us on Thursday, September 15th from 7:30 to 9:00pm in Room 222 at Newton City Hall for Economic Development 101, a primer on the important elements that make up the term “economic development.” Learn what this means to the community, in terms of both financial opportunities and quality of life in Newton.
Our speaker will be Chris Steele, a Newton resident and occasional visiting professor at UMass Boston and UMass Dartmouth on Regional Economic Development. Chris also runs a consulting firm that specializes in corporate site selection and economic development.
