New Haven Mill River Planning Initiative
On June 29, 2011 the first public meeting on the New Haven Mill River Planning Initiative was held to present a study that was done on the area.
The Mill River District is a light industrial and mixed use district that is home to businesses engaged in food processing and distribution, precision manufacturing, design and construction support, specialty building supplies fabrication, and other diverse commercial enterprises.
These businesses employ approximately 3,000 people, many whom reside in the city. With approximately 28% underutilized and vacant land, we know we can grow more jobs!
The city believes that these jobs and businesses are a key part of the vibrancy and success of New Haven!
This study is committed to building on the entrepreneurial businesses and people that are already working to make the Mill River a great place to do business, and better integrate these businesses better into adjacent residential populations.
