Once again, CT Main Street Center lined up an impressive roster of outstanding municipal, development and main street professionals for this day-long workshop. Topics included best practices in public safety, small business improvement and economic development teams; a discussion of municipal tools and incentives that attract the right developers, fast tracking the permitting process, and zoning for mixed use; and what a municipality should, or should not, be doing to attract developers.

Our workshop explored how Connecticut’s towns and cities must play a leading role in building the right partnerships and tools for the next wave of main street development.
