EDC Meets

April 7, 2018

The Economic Development Committee (EDC) met Thursday morning and Chairman Peter Barbieri said that the Blair Square Development Committee failed to meet the previous night due to members scheduling conflicts and any discussions would be tabled. EDC member Matthew Coletti questioned his board as to whether any studies had been done relative to the impact a new high school would have on the economy of the town. Coletti said he would research the issue to see if any surrounding town's had done any of their own studies and report back at the next meeting. Barbieri noted that there has been talk about piping the sewage from the present day high school location on Hollis Street to the under utilized sewage treatment plant behind the Miller/Placentino schools. Barbieri believed the scenario would take the pipeline down Hollis to Washington and left onto Central St. via Railroad to Woodland Streets. Any discussion about downtown businesses or residences hooking up to the pipeline is premature. Barbieri said any real discussion about the sewage piping would have to wait until residents this spring vote on a proposed water treatment plant for well # 5 believed to be in the 8 million dollar range.

EDC members are in the process of visting local large businesses and in the coming months plan to tour Griffin Electric Co., Lista Inernational and Harvard Bio Sciences.

Ed the Community Booklet is still being worked on. The plan is to have it completed in the next month or so, so businesses still have time to advertise. Anyone interested can contact Karen Sherman at the Planning Board. There is a member for the Business Association on the Economic Development Committee.

Friends don't let their local online papers abuse photoshop filters. This is crazy. Stop with the watercolors.

I understand that the Holliston Business Association has initiated a push to re-establish themselves, and are supportive to the local businesses like yourselves. Are there any synergies between your group and theirs? Sounds like similar missions and "members". Also, did the published community book get done yet, I haven't seen one and we thought it was out last year?
