David Cooley, of the Making Meriden Business Center (MMBC) shares the efforts to develop a welcoming, walkable and vibrant downtown Meriden.

“Other cities have a significant head start, but with the support of the community there is no reason we can’t leapfrog our competition. At the MMBC, we like to think big when considering the identity of our “new” Meriden. The Meriden Green gives us the perfect launch pad to make that leap. This accessible green space coupled with our new and old architecture is the exact kind of place where people, musicians, gardens, arts and new urban lifestyles can thrive.”
