Economic Development Committee

An advisory committee of 5 to 7 members, including one member of the Board of Selectmen and one member of the Planning Board, appointed annually by the BOS to make recommendations regarding the creation and implementation of an economic development strategy for Millis which will be adopted by the Board.

The economic development strategy should enhance the ability of the Town to work proactively to promote, encourage and facilitate the development of responsible and properly planned business and industrial growth within the community to expand and strengthen the local economy and diversify the community's tax base.

The committee is responsible for identifying and prioritizing specific action steps for the Board to consider to effectively implement an economic development plan which will carry out the development strategy to both: (a) promote growth of existing businesses; and (b) attract new businesses to Millis.

This committee encourages a voice for local business and relevant stakeholders and a throughput process that will boost commercial revenue and local employment. The committee will utilize data and best practices identified by state, municipal, industry, business, research, chamber and higher education organizations in the formation of strategic proposals for the Board of selectmen's consideration.
