Regionalize and Revitalize: The Way Forward for the North Shore

ing’ when you’re a Mayor. It’s about more than just setting trash pick-up times; you have to plot a positive vision for the future of your city, and then see it through.

Salem Mayor Kimberley Driscoll; North Shore Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner, November 19th.

Thank you to Bob Bradford, Rob Lutts, Bill Tinti, and all of the staff and Board members that help make the North Shore Chamber a powerful voice for economic prosperity for our region. And congratulations to this year’s award recipients. I’m now in my eighth year as Mayor and I appreciate and value the work that the Chamber and all of you do to enhance the places here you live and work. I’d like to touch upon how we might unify to improve our North Shore region even more.

Earlier today I was part of a group of Massachusetts Mayors who met with Mayor Menino to salute him and wish him well as he prepares to leave office. He’s known as a great urban mechanic and has been a great leader in transforming our cities into the centers of innovation that they must be. Mayor Menino has said that there is ‘no hid-

The civic innovator Peter Kageyama, in his book For The Love of Cities, argues for that same thing, connecting citizens to where they live. He’s written that city officials are “part choreographer, part shepherd, part traffic cop, and part cheerleader.” Tonight I want to talk about why we should not limit those roles to just our own city or town.

Let me open by making an admission that might be surprising to hear from the Mayor of a city: Today, no city – no matter how progressive, forward-thinking, or well managed it is – can make it alone. No city is an island unto itself.

If we’re going to grow, then positive partnerships with state leaders are certainly essential. We, at the local level, deliver the services that make a positive difference in the daily lives of the people we represent. And we look to our partners in Boston –legislators, agencies, and Constitutional officers – to support us. We need them to be good faith allies. We need them to have our backs. Thankfully, we have a great group of people in those positions representing all of us on the North Shore.

Personally, I think it’s great when any of our state-wide officials have spent some time in

local government, so they have a sense of what it’s like on the front lines of public service.

Because great cities – great communities – don’t happen by accident. They take planning. And that’s because growing a robust city is a choice. It’s a choice to adopt programs that cultivate new jobs and grow the tax base. It’s a choice to advocate for policies that encourage families, empty nesters, twenty-somethings, to move to your community. It’s a choice to look at the challenges that come with a growing community as opportunities, and not as obstacles. And it’s a choice to change our outlook on these matters. When folks tend to think of development, they focus on more traffic, less parking – instead of more jobs, more customers, more entrepreneurs, more revenues, and more homeowners.

Great communities take planning, but they also take partnerships. When cities and towns work together, with shared goals and strategies, nothing is beyond our capabilities. When we set aside parochial differences, partisan or personal agendas, and that poisonous “us versus them” attitude, nothing is beyond our reach.

Because, in reality, Salem isn’t in competition with Lynn. Beverly isn’t in competition with Peabody. Marblehead isn’t in competition with Danvers. For our cities to grow, our region must thrive. We need the North Shore region to be able to compete with Research Triangle in North Carolina, with the Midwest’s Quad Cities region,
