  Economic Development Issues

Mr. Richards gave an update on recent activities concerning the Chamber of Commerce.  He noted that there will be a Business and Community Expo on Sunday, October 21st at the East Windsor High School from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.  The new Starbucks has joined the Chamber.  Stylez for the Aisles is sponsoring a fashion show.  The Chamber will be sponsoring the Selectmen’s Forum at the high school auditorium on Wednesday, October 10th at 7:00 p.m.  Sam Buca’s Restaurant in Broad Brook will be setting up a grand opening.

Jeff Vose, of MetroHartford Alliance passed out copies of a letter from  Eddie A. Perez, Mayor of Hartford and Andy F. Bessette, of MetroHartford Alliance regarding the Urban Land Institute (ULI) who provides an Advisory Services panel.  They are a “nonprofit education and research organization that fosters and encourages high standards of land use planning and development.”  Mr. Vose explained that they are a big study panel, and this is a good way to bring outside expertise.  They can do one or two day panels.  

Mr. Moffett asked how they can reach out to the Chamber.  Mr. Vose suggested that breakfast meetings work out well.  He pointed out that a recent business breakfast that was held in South Windsor was geared toward financing, to help businesses as to where they can get money as well as information about tax abatement.  The Commission members discussed when and where to hold the breakfast.  Places suggested were the Holiday Inn Express or the town hall.   November 15th was the date suggested.
