The establishment of the Ashland Economic Development Committee was formally approved by the Ashland Board of Selectmen at their April 21, 2014, meeting. “The Ashland Economic Development Committee (AEDC) was formed as a town committee so it may better assist, counsel, and advise the residents of Ashland, the Board of Selectmen, other Town Boards and Departments, and Ashland businesses, both existing and proposed, on the merits of Economic Development. AEDC members will actively engage in furthering the goals set by the citizens of Ashland as defined in the Town of Ashland Master Plan.”
The Ashland Economic Development Committee’s mission is to enhance the vitality of the local economy by supporting existing business and attracting new businesses to Ashland, encouraging economic development consistent with the Ashland Master Plan, and promoting the spirit of the Town.
