Town Manager's Economic Development Committee

Saugus offers a diverse mix of businesses including office, retail, restaurant and other industries, conveniently located at the crossroads of Route 1 and I-95 and close to downtown Boston. The town fosters development that takes advantage of regional market opportunities, local values and demographics, and neighborhood character.

Saugus’s economic development efforts and zoning reflect modern development trends and encourage appropriate commercial growth. New mixed-use and commercial developments are encouraged along the Route 1 corridor and other existing commercial districts. The town works with developers during zoning and permitting processes as well as the design and development phases.
