Meet the Board
The Foundation has 13 members serving on the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees has worked to enhance quality of life in the Plymouth region since being founded in 2001. The Board works with entrepreneurs to bring their concepts to market; small business owners to establish a footprint in Plymouth; employers to train their labor force to prepare for new and emerging technology and industries; property owners and town planners to modernize the land use policies to ensure the community is ready for investment; residents and civic leaders to make certain our families and guests enjoy their time in Plymouth and look forward to coming back.Learn More
Plymouth has a 400 year record of pristine land-use with natural open space. The cost of doing business is cheaper than an urban environment, and there are access points to important metropolitan areas, such as Boston, Quincy, Fall River, New Bedford and Providence. The zoning and permitting process is modernized and ready to accommodate new types of investment. Although historically an agrarian economy, Plymouth seamlessly transcended the industrial age into the nuclear age: no other community in the Commonwealth can claim they possess the brainpower of nuclear technicians and scientists as a core economic driver. Plymouth is uniquely situated with the brainpower, land-use, permitting and incentives necessary to pivot to the digital and quantum economies. This means we are focused on: developing grid-scale energy storage that reduces the cost of energy-intensive operations; using our coastline to be a leader in developing the Blue Economy, including conservation, acquaculture and acquabotics; investing in infrastructure that supports precision manufacturing; and supporting the burgeoning Tourism and Arts Economy.
Economic Development is quality of life. Plymouth offers a high quality experience for residents and investors.Learn More
