Economic Development Workshop Postponed Until April
Because of the recent snowstorms, the Economic Development Workshop scheduled for Thursday, February 19 has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 2. Details below.


The Halifax Board of Selectmen will host a presentation of the results from the Town's participation in the Economic Development Self-Assessment Tool (EDSAT), a program run through Northeastern University, on Thursday, April 2 at 6:30pm in the Great Hall of the Halifax Town Hall. The EDSAT helps cities and towns analyze their capacity for economic development. Municipalities start by identifying and promoting their “deal makers” that foster economic growth and opportunity and surmounting the “deal breakers” within their control that have been working against their efforts. EDSAT enhances the power of local officials to affect positive change in policies and procedures and to better enable these communities to compete for critically needed private sector investment – that is, EDSAT is one of the first steps mayors and boards of selectmen can take to becoming the “CEO of Economic Development” for their communities. Barry Bluestone, of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University will lead the presentation. This project is funded through a grant from the Massachusetts District Local Technical Assistance Program and completed with the assistance of the Old Colony Planning Council. All residents, businesses, and local officials are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact the Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316.
