This report examines how coastal cities in the region are engaging with offshore wind companies to promote local economic development and jobs in their community. What kinds of planning and policy levers can city leaders pull to attract offshore wind industry players? How are developers and manufacturers responding? What other actors are involved in this process, and what community engagement is taking place? And, ultimately, where might these communities be in 20 years, as offshore wind development opens new economic doors and its ripple effects expand? This report addresses these questions by investigating approaches underway in New Bedford, Massachusetts; Providence, Rhode Island; and New London, Connecticut.
