MILLBURY, Mass. — Millbury is being considered for a role in a television documentary called “Communities of Distinction” that will highlight some of the best places to live.
Producers of the show contacted Town Manager Bob Spain and said Millbury was being looked at as a possible candidate, he told the Board of Selectmen on Tuesday evening.
Producer Keith Coombs said the show highlights the discovery of what makes an area desirable to live, work, play and visit, Spain told the board. Is it economic strength, highly ranked schools, top-notch health care, one-of-a-kind events, unique landmarks or quality of life? What keeps lifelong residents from leaving and turns newcomers into longtime residents?
Terry Bradshaw, former Pittsburgh Steeler Super Bowl-winning quarterback and host of Fox’s "NFL Sunday," hosts the show. It is produced in Coral Gables, Fla., but filmed on location. The show airs on the Fox Business Network, Fox and ABC stations as well as regional stations.
The producers will conduct a conference call with town leaders, residents and businessmen within the next week to make a final determination about Millbury, Spain said. Anyone interested in joining the conference call can contact the town manager’s office at 508-865-4710.
