Gloucester development: strengths, needs
Gloucester Times - 03/27/2015
As far as city websites go, Gloucester’s fails — at least according to one Northeastern professor and economist.
There are many things that the city is doing right — and many it can also work on — in terms of promoting economic development. But one of those fixes that’s crucial is revamping the city’s website, Barry Bluestone, a professor at Northeastern University and noted economist told city officials and business leaders Thursday morning.
Bluestone visited Gloucester to go through his Economic Development Self Assessment Test — or EDSAT — with city officials and community members and to revisit the answers given on it a year ago.
