Welcome to the Lowell Plan

Lowell - A 2020 Vision

We work on transformative projects that improve the experience and reputation of Lowell.

The Lowell Plan, Inc. is a private non-profit economic development organization that (1) provides a forum for private and public sector leaders to discuss Lowell’s economic, educational, and cultural development; and (2) supports and advocates for partnership programs that advance the strategic goals of the organization.

Our next civic engagement program is offered January through June, 2017.

Public Matters provides those who live or work in Lowell an opportunity to immerse themselves in this city's history, revitalization, and plans for the future; to meet civic leaders and learn from their experience; to discuss case studies of significant and controversial projects; to pause in the middle of their careers and personal lives to take stock of what they have learned and experienced; expand their skills among talented colleagues in a great city; and to chart the next phase of their involvement in Lowell.
