Robert K Coughlin, President and CEO of the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council recently announced that the City of Revere has been designated a “BioReady Community”. “[I’m] very impressed by the efforts Mayor Daniel Rizzo and his economic development team have undertaken to promote the city as a prime location for good job and tax generating development - especially biopharma uses” said Coughlin.
The BioReady Community designation by the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council signifies that a municipality has biotech and life sciences friendly zoning, has a streamlined permitting process, and has good infrastructure in place. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council use the BioReady designation in marketing efforts aimed at the Biopharma and Life Sciences industries nationally and internationally; the designation serves to showcase Massachusetts communities that are ready to host such new research and manufacturing facilities as these industries seek to locate and develop.
