Economic Development

Welcome To West Boylston, Massachusetts
A Small New England Town with Great Advantages

Greetings from the Town of West Boylston, Massachusetts.  It is our pleasure to welcome you to our unique and historic community. Since the construction of the Wachusett Reservoir 100 years ago, West Boylston has been destined to remain a small New England town.  The residents place a high value on this small town atmosphere according to the citizen surveys.  Preserving this small town culture is one of the things most citizens agree upon.  When most people think of West Boylston, they think of our beautiful open space, the Old Stone Church and our immensely popular rail trail.  However, we are all of that and then some!

While we may still be a small town in many ways, we also have a growing economic base.  West Boylston is close to the Massachusetts Turnpike, I-290 and has two access points to I-190.  A commercial strip on Route 12 bisects our town.  Truly there are wonderful opportunities in the Town of West Boylston and the easy access to the region's highway infrastructure and proximity to Worcester to the south has attracted a great deal of commercial and industrial activity.  We are the home to many successful banks, restaurants, domestic and international companies, as well as Salter College.

Our single tax rate for both business and residential properties has helped to make West Boylston an attractive location to establish or grow a business.  Most of the town is served by public water and sewer.

If you are interested in starting or relocating a business in the region, then West Boylston may be the place for you and your employees.  We have a lot to offer and we will go above and beyond to welcome you to our family.
