Economic and Community Development
Mansfield is a vibrant, diverse, and caring community that offers its residents and the region unique cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities. The Town is committed to principles of environmental protection and intelligent land use, business retention, and sustainable development.
Whether you are looking to start a new business, expand an existing business, or relocate your established business, Mansfield is an ideal location. As the home of the University of Connecticut, our town offers big city amenities in a small town setting. Educational and cultural opportunities, up-to-date research, and other resources to strengthen your business are available through the state’s flagship university. Several museums, performances spaces, and the Mansfield Community Center offer a wide range of cultural and recreational opportunities. Our superior school system and extensive system of parks, preserves, and trails make Mansfield an attractive home for your employees.
We invite you to take some time to review our Plan of Conservation and Development and our strategic plan, “Mansfield 2020: A Unified Vision,” to acquaint yourself with the values and goals of our community. We also encourage you to visit our Economic Development Commission's webpage for current and past agendas, minutes, and packets from the Commission.
