The mission of the Town of Hopkinton’s Economic Development Committee is to enhance the many attributes that the Town of Hopkinton has to offer.

We are dedicated to help create opportunities for economic development through desirable business growth, expansion, retention and attraction in working as partners to develop a climate conducive to maintaining the quality of life in this great Town of Hopkinton.

We are dedicated to creating a more vibrant and cultivated community by:

  • Serving as a conduit between the commercial economic interests in Town of Hopkinton, the municipal government and the residents of Town;
  • Encouraging the economic well-being and expansion of the existing commercial businesses located within the Town;
  • Responsibly assisting in developing properties within the Town of Hopkinton in an effort to improve the aesthetics of the town while providing additional revenue; and
  • Reviewing Town ordinances, policies, and practices to determine their impact on existing and proposed commercial businesses.
