Here are a few updates and highlights from the Mayor’s office and City Hall this week:

➡️ MassDevelopment’s Northeast team presented an overview of MassDevelopment programs to local officials from neighboring Cape Ann communities at Gloucester City Hall this week. The presentation included information on their traditional lending services, Brownfield financing, Collaborative Workspace Programs, and Real Estate services. It was an excellent opportunity to collaborate and connect with local leaders from neighboring communities.

➡️ The Action Plan for MBTA Communities form has been submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development to put the City into temporary compliance with State law. The Action Plan includes a high-level timeline for the City’s Comprehensive Planning Initiative and general next steps in the process.
