Leaders for Regional Prosperity

The 495/MetroWest Partnership, through a unique public-private collaboration with businesses, municipalities, and other stakeholders, is the regional leader for creating an environment that prepares for and cultivates sustainable growth. We accomplish this by coordinating, educating, and advocating for solutions to regional constraints and limited natural resources.

Strength in Numbers 2016 Edition

The 495 MetroWest Partnership is pleased to announce the latest edition of our demographic report for the region's 35 communities. Over the course of a year, the region has experienced significant growth in a number of notable areas, demonstrating the region's continued transformation into one of Massachusetts' most promising areas for employers, jobs, and quality of life. Highlights include:

-A $1.5 billion increase in regional payroll;

-Unemployment far below state and national averages; and

-A 3.5% growth in regional employers.

These highlights are only a small sampling of the region's achievements during the past year. To view the full report, click here.

495/MetroWest Suburban Edge Community Commission

The 495/ MetroWest Suburban Edge Community Commission was established by the Legislature in Section 233 of Chapter165 of the Session Laws of 2015. The commission will study development challenges experienced by edge communities, including transportation, water, cellular, and energy infrastructure, transit services, residential development, reuse of former industrial facilities and historic mills, brownfields reclamation, downtown redevelopment and other such constraints. The commission will then develop policy responses and recommendations to ensure that edge communities can participate in state development initiatives and benefit from state resources. The commission will focus its investigation and study on the 35 municipalities served by the 495/MetroWest Corridor Partnership, Inc. and develop a pilot program to address the issues to be studied and investigated by the commission.
