Guest Speaker: Senator Brendan Crighton
2019 Planning Session: What should be the topics of focus for the upcoming year?
- One Voice
Organize all Chambers on the North Shore to speak with one voice.
Nothing is being done on the North Shore. Partner with Salem, Peabody, Lynn, Nahant, Swampscott, and Marblehead to improve access.
Lynn needs video. It is well proven that is works and is affordable.
This is tied to zoning and workforce preparedness.
We have seen how difficult it is to develop the Lynn waterfront. Can we fix regulation?
We are in crisis in Lynn with our budget. There are numerous studies provoked by the Chamber over the years, few of which have been taken to heart, from Salem State, Philadelphia report, etc. Dust them off.
Continue with mentorships and expand them.
