Plymouth Promised $1.5 Million for Infrastructure Improvements for 2020

Plymouth has been promised another $1.5 million from the state for infrastructure improvements and economic developement in the Downtown/Waterfront district in preparation for the town's 400th anniversary in 2020.

The funding is part of a $38 million grant program, called the MassWorks Infrastructure Program, designed to support economic development and housing creation throughout Massachusetts.

According to the Patrick-Murray administration, the investments "are targeted to projects that require the infrastructure upgrades or expansion in order for new growth to take place."

“The MassWorks program is a key part of our growth strategy of investing in education, innovation and infrastructure to create jobs and spur economic development,” Gov. Deval Patrick said in a release. “By partnering with municipalities, these MassWorks projects will strengthen communities for generations to come.”

The MassWorks Program is administered by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development (EOHED), and is a consolidation of six capital budget programs that were combined by the Patrick-Murray Administration in 2011 and codified by law as a single MassWorks Program in the Jobs Bill signed by the Governor in August 2012. This consolidation gives communities a single point of entry, a clear set of requirements for the state’s public infrastructure grants, and creates efficiencies and a streamlined decision-making process that increases access for municipalities and enhances local, regional, state as well as public-private partnerships around economic development and housing.
