Under its "Growth Districts Initiative", EOHED will partner with municipalities that have identified one or more areas within their communities as being appropriate locations for significant new growth, whether commercial, residential or mixed-use. Within those identified "growth districts", EOHED will work with the community and property owners to make the district truly "development ready" with respect to local permitting, state permitting, site preparation (including brownfields remediation), infrastructure improvements, and marketing. The objective will be to create a level of "development readiness" within each of these growth districts. The following is a list of the communities along with site maps and summaries of the Growth District's build out potential.
