Hanlan, James P.
Worcester has always been an industrial leader. Worcester's past has included companies such as: The Washburn Company, Jamesbury Valves, and the Norton Company. These companies, though still producing, are not thriving as they have in the past, as manufacturing has declined to only 4% of the US economy. With the groundbreaking for the Biotechnology Park in 1984, Worcester set itself apart from most cities in the country. The Project focuses on the future of the local economy, what the future might bring, and the problems inhibiting economic growth.
