The Town of Woodbridge is initiating business sector meetings in order to strengthen economic development. At sector meetings First Selectman Ellen Scalettar invites business representatives from the same industry to meet with each other and discuss common issues.
The next sector meeting – Health Care – will be held on April 5 at 5 p.m. at Town Hall. If you’re a Woodbridge health care representative interested in attending the meeting, please let Assistant Administrative Officer Betsy Yagla know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 203-389-3403.
The first sector—Real Estate and Commercial Property Owners—met in February at Town Hall. The conversation centered on Town and State projects, such as the effort to improve signage in the Business District, improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians in the area and the state’s plans for Exit 59. Scalettar also sought input from realtors on how to better welcome new residents to Woodbridge and market Woodbridge to new residents and businesses. Additionally, realtors had time to speak with each other and the First Selectman about industry trends.
“My goal is to take our economic development efforts to the next level. We will continue to provide meaningful networking opportunities for our local businesses and to learn if there are any industry trends or concerns with which the Town can be helpful,” said First Selectman Scalettar.
Future sector meetings (manufacturing, retail and restaurants, professional services and home businesses) will be announced via the business email newsletter (sign up here: tinyurl.com/WoodbridgeCTBiz) and in press releases.
