The Future of the William Stanley Business Park in Focus Tuesday
Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, Housing and Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy, and MassDevelopment President & CEO Dan Rivera will be holding a virtual press conference on a Site Readiness Program Tuesday at 10:00 AM.
According to a press release from the Office of Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer, Governor Baker, Lt. Governor Polito, Secretary Kennealy, MassDevelopment’s Dan Rivera, will be making an announcement relative to the Site Readiness Program. Other invited guests include state legislators and municipal officials from Belchertown, Brockton, Burlington, Fairhaven, Gloucester, Lawrence, Leicester, Palmer, Pittsfield, and Southwick.
The Site Readiness Program is administered by MassDevelopment on behalf of the Baker-Polito Administration. The program aims to boost the state’s supply of large, well-located, project-ready sites; accelerate private-sector investment in industrial and commercial projects; and support the conversion of abandoned sites and obsolete facilities into clean, actively used, tax-generating properties.
As far as the City of Pittsfield is concerned, we will find out more of what is in store for the William Stanley Business Park, as following the state’s event, the City of Pittsfield will be hosting its own event regarding the business park and the Site Readiness Program Announcement.
Here is some “about” information from the MassDevelopement website:
As the Commonwealth’s economic development and finance authority, MassDevelopment is committed to achieving three goals: stimulating business, driving economic growth, and helping communities thrive across Massachusetts.
MassDevelopment formed in 1998 from a merger of the Government Land Bank and Massachusetts Industrial Finance Agency. The Massachusetts Health and Educational Facilities Authority was merged into MassDevelopment in 2010, strengthening the depth of offerings for tax-exempt bond financing of capital projects.
