Over 238 cities and towns — including at least ten from Massachusetts — submitted proposals for Amazon’s proposed $5 billion second headquarters. In addition to the Massachusetts state bid and the combined proposal from Boston and Revere, which offered a number of possible sites in the two cities, there were bids from the following Massachusetts communities:

  • Fall River (Freetwon & Fall River)
  • Leominster
  • Lowell region (Billerica, Tewksbury, Lowell)
  • Marlboough region (Marlborough, Hudson, Northborough, Southborough, & Westborough)
  • Merrimack Valley (North Andover, Andover, Haverhill, Lawrence, & Methuen)
  • New Bedford
  • Taunton
  • Weymouth region (Abington, Rockland, Weymouth)
  • Worcester

The Boston proposal focused heavily on the area’s stengths:

  • A highly educated workforce
  • Large number of leading research universities
  • Booming tech sector
  • Strong community partners

MassTLC, along with other community partners, submitted a letter in support of the Boston proposal.
