In Case You Missed It: 50 Best Cities + Towns For Business in Central MA
Saturday, March 23, 2013
What are the best cities and towns in Central MA for doing business?
GoLocal's new ranking, 50 Best Cities + Towns For Doing Business in Central MA, took an analytical look at every city and town in the region on a set of pro-business metrics: those big cities and small towns where a combination of factors make companies grow.
The top performing cities and towns managed a balance of reasonable taxes and cost of living index performance, paired with robust indicators for growth, a good-sized labor force, and relative closeness to the business-friendly services of Logan Airport. Northbridge claimed the top spot in this year's ranking, where low commercial and personal property taxes ($12.35 per $1,000 of assessed value) added to positive current and projected job growth, as well as a cost of living that fell near the middle of the range exhibited throughout the Central Mass region.
Our researchers culled municipally-distinct data on tax rates, workforce availability, cost of living index, economic indicators for short term and long-term job growth, even average driving time to Logan Airport, to quantify a blend of factors that make for a pro-business environment. Because every city and state in Massachusetts complies by statewide measures, those metrics weren't included in GoLocal's research.
