Wilton's Economic Development Leadership Team serves the citizens and business owners of Wilton and reports to the Select Board and the Town Administrator. This team's responsibilities are to set priorities, make recommendations, and guide the execution of programs and projects that help achieve the vision of Wilton residents to remain a vibrant and thriving small town. Our goals are to protect its rural environment, historic charm, and natural resources while promoting opportunities for residential and business growth that are compatible with, responsive to and supportive of the needs of the community and local economy.

Final Results - NRPC Collaborative Workspace Survey

NRPC logoAs a follow up to the feasibility assessment completed in 2018, the Nashua Regional Planning Commission (NRPC), in collaboration with the Wilton Economic Development Team, conducted a 28-day online survey from April 6th through May 4th, 2020. The purpose of the survey was to gauge the demand for collaborative workspaces in the Wilton area. The survey was intended to target three specific audiences: 
existing entrepreneurs and business owners. 
potential entrepreneurs and small business owners.
those who have hobbies which require a significant investment in things like equipment and facilities.

The survey summary and results can be downloaded HERE.  We are looking forward to continue working with the NRPC to assess the results and develop a strategy moving forward.
