Economic Development Committee members met Thursday morning at Town Hall. Chairman Peter Barbieri announced that it was his understanding that Brighton Health Care Advocates has signed a purchase and sales agreement to buy 14 acres of land in the Hopping Brook Industrial Park. Brighton Health Advocates had previously requested and received a letter of non-opposition from the Selectmen to grow marijuana at a Summer Street location, but recently asked for and received a letter of non-opposition for a change of site. When asked by a board member why growers find Holliston attractive for their operations, Town Administrator Jeff Ritter replied it may be that no special permitting is required. Barbieri said land prices may also have something to do with the attraction.

EDC members voted to endorse a single tax rate for both residential and businesses. Board members will start touring the top 10 business employers beginning in January of 2018.
