    • “ Incredibly, 96% of the economic output of Massachusetts is generated by the four metropolitan areas in the state that rank in the top 100 nationally.” *
    • NOTE: Springfield is the core city of one of the 100 largest metros in the United States.
    *Bruce Katz Vice President and Director, Metropolitan Policy Program
  • 37. Why Do We Care?
    • To quote Dean John Mullin from the University of Massachusetts,  "There is no great region without a great center city, there is no great center city without a great downtown and there is no great downtown today without the presence of medical and educational institutions".
