Economic Development

The Town's Economic Development Goal as adopted in the 2020-2030 Plan of Conversation and Development is to promote growth and retention of existing businesses and development of new business opportunities to strengthen the community’s tax base in an innovative manner, while preserving and protecting the residential character of the surrounding neighborhoods.

Our Economic Development staff work to facilitate growth and retention of existing businesses, and attract a variety of new businesses and development to Town. It is important to provide our current and future businesses with the resources that will assist in their stability and vitality.

For assistance with starting your business, finding suitable space to open a business in Town, understanding what permits are required for your business to open or expand, connecting with resources to help your business grow, our staff is available to help you with a wide range of support. For personal assistance, please contact our Economic Development Coordinator Kristen Gorski by email or call 860-960-6136. 

We look forward to working with you!
