Amazon’s search for HQ2 has generated quite a buzz across the continent, attracting nearly every major U.S. city to consider a bid, as the technology giant searches for a second home.
Among the likes of Los Angeles, New York City, and Toronto, Billerica might seem a small fish. But, after checking off the prerequisites to apply, the town is moving forward to bid for the second Amazon campus.
State Sen. Cindy Friedman and state Rep. Marc Lombardo support Billerica’s bid, which must be filed by Oct. 19. Amazon is expected to choose its new headquarters location sometime in 2018.
