Economic Development Commission (EDC)


The EDC’s primary mission is to promote the economic growth of Mansfield by monitoring economic conditions and making recommendations to the Town Council.  The EDC plays a lead role in implementation of the Town’s economic development strategy and partners with surrounding towns to promote business development throughout the region.

Current Initiatives

  • Business Visitation Program.  To learn more about opportunities and challenges for local businesses, Mansfield EDC representatives are meeting with local businesses.  Contact EDC staff if you would like the EDC to visit your business.

  • Business Recognition.  The EDC celebrates achievements and milestones of local businesses through features on the Town website and by issuing press releases to local publications.  If you know of a business that is celebrating a milestone or other achievement, let us know!

  • Permitting Guide.  COMING SOON - We know that navigating your way through the permitting process can feel like you are stuck in a maze.  Our new permitting guide was created to give you the basics on what permits you need, where to start, and who to call if you have questions.

The EDC meets on the fourth Thursday of every month (except November and December) at 5:30 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers.  View 2016 Meeting Schedule
