Economic Development Sites – Newburyport, Massachusetts 

September 12, 2022 9:56 am

One of the roles of the North Shore Alliance is to support economic development initiatives across 30 towns along the northeast region of Massachusetts. Not only do we encourage and support growing companies and their leaders, but we also bolster new businesses by providing information about commercial development opportunities for entrepreneurs to start a new business or current business owners to expand their footprint. 

To do this, we highlight commercial priority development sites with the help of the region’s Economic Development Directors, City and Town Planners, and Community Directors. 

In staying with this month’s town spotlight featuring Newburyport, Massachusetts, we will be highlighting three economic development sites in that town. Please visit our North Shore Alliance site to check on availability as availability status may change.
