Earlier today, I held a press conference to announce the completion of public improvements within the River Street Municipal Development Plan as well as the next phase of development in this area. Development in this area provides for business expansion and the potential for the creation of multiple new jobs, all moving forward despite a challenging economic climate. This effort was led by the Office of Economic Development and truly reflects the partnership between the City, the State of Connecticut, the Federal government and the private sector.
