First Selectman's Corner:

Congratulations to Dave Hurley, President of Hurley Manufacturing in New Hartford, for being recognized by the State of Connecticut.  Dave was recently honored by the Connecticut Economic Resource Center and was the recipient of a Celebrate Connecticut Award. 

Dave was faced with owning a large warehouse facility (Greenwoods Road) during a time when the economy was in a downward trend. Dave contacted New Hartford town officials who worked with him to modify zoning regulations that would allow for commercial use in a building once zoned Industrial use only.  The First Selectman, Board of Selectmen and Planning and Zoning Commissioners collaborated to expedite the process that allowed the Hurley family to create a modern, mixed-use environment that is now enjoyed by residents and non-residents alike.The birth of the Hurley Business Park was a plus to the Economic Development of New Hartford.

If you haven't been there yet.. it's worth a visit!
