Purity, Direct Auto Parts, etc

From David Gay's site:

At the EDC meeting held on September 19th, the committee reviewed our marketing material for publication. We discussed several additions and modifications, and this comprehensive brochure highlighting what Tewksbury has to offer new businesses should be ready to print soon.

We discussed preparation of a presentation to the Board of Selectmen on September 27th. The committee will present the accomplishments of the EDC from it's inception up to the present.

An update was given on recent developments on Rt 38. Ocean State Job Lot will open in November occupying the long vacant Purity Supreme property. A Subway sandwich shop was supposed to be built on Rt 38 but due to construction problems, the framed building was torn down and is scheduled to be re-built.

Tewksbury has it's first company to take advantage of the Tax Increment Financing (TIF). Thermo-Fisher will locate in Tewksbury and employs about 400 people. This will mean about 100 new jobs over the next 5 years for area residents as well as added tax revenue for Tewksbury.

Steve Sadwick Director of Community Planning and Town Manager Richard Montuori should be highly commended in negotiating with Thermo-Fisher to take advantage of our TIF opportunity and I envision more companies locating in Tewksbury using this powerful business opportunity.

Details of this will be available in the press in the near future.

This update is great news, indeed.....and proof that the EDC is making progress even when you don't see the "immediate results" everyone would like. These things require due diligence and take time. To David and the Committee.....thanks for staying with it and keep up the good work! :)

I wonder what is happening with the land and buildings across from Dracut Appliance where there was a Day Care Center. The for sale sign is gone and I saw a small backhoe there the other day.
