Gateway City economic report highlights local characteristics

From today's MassDevelopment press release:

"An analysis of Gateway Cities that MassDevelopment commissioned to advise its Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) work reveals varied community characteristics and distress levels in these 26 former industrial centers, reinforcing the need for local approaches to spur redevelopment. Gateway Cities are home to more than one-quarter of the Commonwealth’s population and more than 20 percent of its jobs, highlighting the continued import of public and private investment. The cities also have significant assets, including desirable walkable downtowns and historic architecture, upon which local leaders hope to anchor their redevelopment plans. The University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute compiled the data for the report, which provides an economic analysis of Gateway Cities and the 10 designed TDI Districts in Development."
