Mark Carey of Mayor Thomas Koch's office was at The Studio at OfficeLink recently to bring us up to speed on the Quincy 400 initiative. Mark works in Mayor Thomas Koch's office in Media and Productions, and is a former director of Discover Quincy, which was the inaugural organization to promote tourism to the city of Quincy. Mark's current initiative is Quincy 400. In 2025, Quincy will celebrate its 400th anniversary of its settlement. To mark this historic year, Mayor Koch is leading an unprecedented community planning effort entitled “Quincy 400.” The endeavor will touch on a wide range of subjects from schools to transportation to economic development, the arts and culture, and neighborhoods. It all revolves around a simple question “Where do we want Quincy to be in 2025?”
To this end, Quincy is gathering feedback from stakeholders in the Quincy community in the following important areas: Neighborhoods, Education, History Arts & Culture, Transportation and Capital Assets, Economic Growth and Tourism, and Health and Wellness.
They will be holding a series of collaborative events to get feedback from the community, and the Quincy 400 committee is also collecting data via survey. To take the survey or learn more, visit Quincy400.com.
