Gloucester EDIC was formed in 1977 under Chapter 121 C of the Massachusetts General Laws, which allows municipalities to form a governmental corporation to carry out economic development projects, pursuant to economic development plans which are approved by the City Council. These projects involve industrial and manufacturing uses and are focused on developing industrial parks with infrastructure and lots of land within the City to increase employment, generate tax revenue and increase business activity. The EDIC works with businesses, within the present industrial parks and throughout the City, and with the private sector to encourage economic activity and match businesses looking for sites with the private sector, realtors and property owners. Executive Director Tom Gillett is the primary contact. 978-325-5282 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
