The Planning Commission already hosted a meeting last week focusing on infrastructure needs, said Timothy Brennan, the executive director. A later this month focuses on collaborative engagement. A draft plan will be ready by the end of 2014. Updated periodically since 1994, the Plan for Progress has given the region's leaders focus and resulted in the creation of the Economic Development Council itself as well as successful pushes for more broadband access, the Massachusetts Green High-Performance Computing Center in Holyoke and the in-progress efforts to rehab Springfield's Union Station.
