And so, it is important that public officials across the municipal structure understand the intricacies of the local, state and global economy, and develop a strong and successful economic development foundation for their community’s future.
To help, the Milford Economic Development Commission is offering a free municipal economic development workshop this Wednesday, Feb. 26, beginning at noon, in the City Hall Auditorium.
The two-hour course is geared to anyone within a municipality who impacts economic development, and is designed to get everyone working collaboratively.
The workshop was created as a joint effort among various Connecticut public officials, including the Connecticut Economic Resource Center, Inc., the Connecticut Economic Development Association, the Connecticut Main Street Center and the MetroHartford Alliance.
The workshop will answer the following questions:
- What is economic and community development?
- Who is responsible for economic development?
- What role does/should your “economic development team” and community play?
- How do you convince your residents and businesses of the importance of economic development?
- How is your municipal economy impacted by the state, region and global economy?
