The summit will focus on promoting regional collaboration on the “Last Mile” Connection, which is the connection from major public transit, including commuter rail stations, busing routes, and park and rides, to the business locations where people work. The summit was organized by the economic development organizations and professionals in the towns of Southborough, Northborough, Westborough, Marlborough, Hudson, Hopkinton and the 495/MetroWest Partnership.
David McCay, a partner at Mirick O’Connell specializing in Land Use and Environmental Litigation, and the Chair of the Southborough Economic Development Committee, will open the summit, followed by Lt. Gov. Polito’s keynote address. A panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Barry Bluestone, founding director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy and Founding Dean of the School of Public Policy & Urban Affairs at Northeastern University. Panelists include: Ed Carr, Administrator of the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority; Jim Robbins, Westborough Town Planner; Paul Matthews, Executive Director of the 495/MetroWest Partnership; Bill Spencer of Pall Life Sciences in Westborough; and Marybeth Stewart, Human Resources Manager of Wegmans Food Markets.
“The goal of the Boroughs+ Economic Development Summit is to bring together local leaders to collaborate on important economic development and transit issues that impact the future of the Boroughs+ region,” said McCay. “By working as a team on the local and regional level, we can begin to address the transportation issues that many employers face.”
