Learn More About Winthrop, MA

The town of Winthrop is a wonderful seaside community located within easy commuting distance of downtown Boston, featuring beautiful beaches, conservation areas, a nine hole golf course and boating facilities.  The town has a small commercial retail sector with room to grow and the majority of businesses in the community are independently owned businesses that employ 5 to 20 people on average.  The town undertook an Economic Development Strategic Plan in 2014 and re-wrote its Center Business District zoning to encourage the development of new mixed use development. The focus is to bring new retail and commercial interests to the community, while also developing newer, more urban style housing for young professionals.  The town is seeking to attract new development to its Center and Waterfront and to develop a visitor and tourism based economy that takes advantage of our natural resources and attractions.

The Town of Winthrop has recently completed a master planning process for the Centre Business District and amended zoning to help streamline permitting in the Centre Business District.
