The Work of the Economic Development Committee

The Economic Development Committee (EDC) is dedicated to helping create opportunities for economic development through desirable business attraction, retention, growth, and expansion.


We work as partners to develop a climate conducive to maintaining the quality of life in this great Town of Hopkinton.

In order to create a more vibrant and livable community, the EDC:

  • Serves as a conduit between the commercial economic interests in Hopkinton, the municipal government, and the residents;

  • Encourages the economic well-being and expansion of the existing commercial businesses located within the town;

  • Responsibly assists in developing properties within the Town of Hopkinton in an effort to improve the aesthetics of the town while providing additional revenue;

  • Reviews Town ordinances, policies, and practices to determine their impact on existing and proposed commercial endeavors; and

  • Pursues outside sources of funding for necessary and desired projects in Hopkinton, so that vital progress can be accomplished with minimal impact to the residential tax rate.
