The Alliance service area is made up of 30 communities, including four Gateway Cities and brings together regional leaders to explore and take action on economic development issues that can help grow the region, including those that advance the Commonwealth as a whole.


Stretching from Winthrop to Amesbury, the North Shore encompasses towns as small as Rowley (pop. 1381) and cities as large as Lynn (pop. 90,000). Focusing primarily on shoreline communities, the Alliance includes Essex County east of Route 95 in its bounds as well as the city of Revere and  town of Winthrop in Suffolk County.
