The top economic official in Gov. Deval Patrick’s cabinet will kick off a tour of nine up-and-coming cities and towns in Chelsea today, Thursday, April 25th, making four stops in the city through the morning hours.
According to a release from Secretary Greg Bialecki’s Office of Housing and Economic Development, the secretary will visit several business and development projects that highlight why Chelsea is quickly becoming a destination for businesses to locate and people to live.
Following that tour, he will host a luncheon discussion with Chelsea business and government leaders.
The tour will stop at the following locations:
•10 a.m. Tito’s Bakery, Broadway
•10:30 a.m. New England Sculpture Service, Arlington St.
•11 a.m. One North of Boston, 6th Street
•Noon Residence Inn, Maple Street
Bialecki’s office described Tito’s as a “local institution” and an “anchor” of the city’s Latino business community; it described the foundry as a “key part” of Chelsea’s creative economy; and One North as a project that will bring market-rate housing close to public transportation resources.
Future stops on the tour will include Charlestown, East Boston, Everett, Malden, Medford, Revere, Somerville and Winthrop.
