A collaborative effort among Burlington and four of its neighbors to promote their shared Route 3 corridor has earned some notable recognition. The Massachusetts Municipal Association at its recent annual meeting presented the Middlesex 3 Coalition with its Kenneth E. Pickard Municipal Innovation Award, which salutes projects that increase the effectiveness of local government. The Middlesex 3 Coalition is a public-private venture that is working to strengthen the economy and improve the quality of life for the northern Route 3 corridor communities of Burlington, Bedford, Billerica, Chelmsford, and Lowell. The coalition’s board includes the chief executives of the five communities, and representatives from the business community, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and Middlesex Community College. “Middlesex 3 works to solve the common issues in the area and to improve the quality of life for local residents,” Robert Buckley, a senior partner in the Burlington office of the Riemer & Braunstein law firm and a member of the Middlesex 3 board, said in a prepared statement. “The key is the public-private partnership we’ve created. It allows us a unique perspective on economic and municipal opportunities.”
