The Western Connecticut Council of Governments has created a survey to assess the business climate in the region. They are particularly interested in the barriers businesses in the region face and what can be improved to help businesses. The survey takes about 15 minutes to finish.
WestCOG will hold a series of focus group meetings to further the conversation.
Responses from the survey and the focus groups will be used in the creation of a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. The strategy will facilitate continued economic development in the region for the next five years. The mayors and first selectmen of the WestCOG communities want to also include businesses in the planning process.
WestCOG serves Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Norwalk, Redding, Ridgefield, Sherman, Stamford, Weston, Westport, and Wilton.
