Formed in 1982 under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 121C, the Belchertown Economic Development Industrial Corporation (EDIC)'s mission is to develop and implement a Town Meeting-approved economic development plan on the site of the former Belchertown State School that maintains the small town look and feel, creates significant jobs and ideal business development that recognizes the past and enhances the future of the Town of Belchertown.

 The EDIC is a nonprofit, quasi-governmental organization dedicated to the redevelopment of the former Belchertown State School. It is governed by seven volunteer Directors and two Associate Members, all town residents.

The EDIC meets the third Wednesday of every month at 7:00 PM in Town Hall. Special meetings are called by the Chairman as needed and posted at least two days in advance.  The public is welcome to attend.
