The East Granby Economic Development Commission meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Public Hearing Room at the Town Hall. A Zoom meeting link is also included in each month’s agenda for those who would like to join remotely.  The Commission is comprised of nine appointed members including seven regular members and two alternates.

As per CT General Statues Section 7-136,

“The commission shall conduct research into the economic conditions and trends in its municipality, shall make recommendations to appropriate officials and agencies of its municipality regarding action to improve its economic condition and development, shall seek to coordinate the activities of and cooperate with unofficial bodies organized to promote such economic development and may advertise and may prepare, print and distribute books, maps, charts and pamphlets which in its judgment will further its official purposes.”

Commission Goals

The Economic Development Commission’s primary goals are to develop policies, consistent with the Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD), that support business growth, development, retention, and expansion. As a Commission, the three primary goals are:

  1. Increase revenue for the Town to help reduce the property tax burden
  2. Create good-paying jobs that are at least equivalent to the town’s median household income
  3. Provide needed services to the local businesses and residents of East Granby
