Throughout the fall of 2013 and early winter of 2014, Dr. Barry Bluestone of Northeastern University's Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy worked with the Town of Easton to produce an Economic Development Self Assessment Tool. This assessment examined Easton's current economic strengths and weaknesses compared to surrounding municipalities.

 

Easton offers an educated workforce, access to research institutions, competitve manufacturing space rents, excellent highway access, and a safe, attractive community to live in.
