Last week, the Town of Southborough hosted a 2040 Business & Nonprofit Summit. The focus was sharing relevant information and seeking input as the town plans for the next 25 years.
Now the Economic Development Committee is sharing the event video in an effort to seek wider community feedback.
The EDC shared:
Our challenge is how Southborough will plan to meet the economic, demographic and land use challenges ahead. One key to our success will be how well we collaborate with all the industry sectors including businesses, non-profits, residents and the public sector to assure our economic wellness.
Participants heard information on that may impact the town’s ability to grow and prosper. That included:
- our town’s economic profile
- regional, state and national influences on our local economy
- projected demographics
From here, the EDC plans meet to prioritize possible next steps. Those will be reviewed with the Board of Selectmen and interested members of the community to obtain their guidance for moving forward.
But first, they are seeking more feedback. If you are interested in this issue but weren’t able to attend last week, you can check out the video above. You can also view it directly via You Tube or broadcast on SAM Public Access Channel (Charter-191 and Verizon-38):
- Saturday, November 15th at 9 AM
- Sunday, November 16th at 6 PM
- Monday, November 17th, Wednesday, November 19th & Friday, November 21st at 9PM,
- Tuesday, November 18th and Thursday, November 20th at 8 AM
(That schedule will repeat for 2 weeks.)
If you’d like to provide feedback to the EDC, you are welcome to join their next meeting. They will convene on Wednesday, November, 19 at 8:00 am in Town Hall.
