We welcome you to our community and thank you for taking an interest in our town. Shirley has much to offer to new or expanding businesses:
Only minutes from Route 2 and 2A, and ready access to the Route 495 and I190 corridors, Shirley is well located for commuting to or moving goods and materials into and out of town.
With a stop in Shirley Village, convenient rail service is a available along the Route 2 corridor from Fitchburg to Boston’s North Station.
With a new regional school that opened in the fall of 2014, and moderate housing prices, Shirley is ideal for young families who want to maintain a good life/work balance, or empty nesters tired of long commutes by living and working in the same town.
Town government established an Economic Development Committee in 2010 to provide a dedicated focus to the needs and desires of businesses. Developers and business owners have a built-in support system for facilitating their potential projects.
