Brochure & Guidebook
Helpful guides to learn more about economic development.
Welcome to the Town of Charlton Economic Development Marketing Brochure. This brochure is sponsored by the Charlton Economic Development Commission (EDC) with funding support from Southbridge Savings Bank.
The goal of this brochure is two-fold. First, to offer information regarding key commercial an industrial development opportunities along Charlton's Route 20 corridor. The second related goal is to highlight key existing corporate entities which make-up the base of Charlton's existing economy; these large-scale businesses may complement or augment companies which may wish to locate within the undeveloped corridor parcels highlighted in this brochure.
Brochures are available at the Charlton Municipal Offices, 37 Main Street, Charlton as well as other establishments around town. For more information, contact the EDC at the Town Hall Planning Office at 508-248-2237.
May 29, 2012—Charlton has received a Gold BioReady™ rating, signifying its readiness to work with biotechnology companies interested in locating there, according to the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council.
Development Permit Process Guidebook
The EDC has compiled a Development Permit Process Guidebook as a comprehensive guide to assist applicants in obtaining permits and licenses in the Town of Charlton. The Guidebook is updated annually every November and has proven to be a very popular and useful information source for the local permitting process. The public may obtain copies of the Guidebook from the Planning Board Office, Building Commissioner's Office or Town Clerk's Office in the Town Building, 37 Main Street. The Planning Board Office also has a limited number of Guidebook copies available on CD Rom.
