Sparrows Point Transformation – State and Local Role

In a Center Maryland Exclusive, Sparrows Point CEO talks about the site’s transformation and how the State and local governments have come together to make it happen.

Over the next several months, we’re working to finalize our vision for the site, with input from potential future leaseholders, government and local leaders, and our neighbors right here in Baltimore. And as we transform the future of the site, we’re building connections between the rest of the country and the world through Baltimore. In the not too distant future, the Star of Bethlehem will overlook thousands of men and women going to work every day. Maryland is open for business and we are proud to be part of this state and region as we move this project forward.

To learn more about the factors businesses consider when looking to expand or locate in an area and a local governments role in attracting these companies, attend the MACo Winter Conference session, Bringing Business to Your Backyard. 

Description: Businesses decide to locate in certain areas for many reasons. It could be the highly educated workforce, the sense of community, or the cost of doing business – just to name a few. During this session, a site selection consultant will discuss the most important factors a company considers when looking to expand or relocate a business and how attendees can better market their jurisdictions to be more attractive to business.
