The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council has designated Abington as one of 72 “bio-ready” communities out of the 351 cities and towns in the state, Town Manager John D’Agostino announced at last week’s Board of Selectmen meeting.

Towns are classified as bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, depending on many factors. Abington received the bronze designation.
