Does the EDC need a Coordinator?

Yes. Many Town Boards and Committees have coordinators or paid employees, such as the Planning Department, Conservation Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), Board of Selectmen, and Town Clerk.  In the modern economy, economic development has become a core government function, evidenced by the widespread establishment of economic development organizations at the local, state, and national levels.  In Massachusetts, a high percent of municipalities have an economic development committee or organization in some form. The EDC needs a coordinator to provide consistency of effort on numerous EDC objectives and projects, and to coordinate the scheduling, outreach, and support of the Committee to over 600 businesses and non-profits in Southborough.
