About the Economic Development Commission
Thomaston achieved SustainableCT Bronze Certification!

Thomaston recently won an Award for Excellence from the Connecticut Main Street Center! 

The mission of the Economic Development Commission (EDC) is to organize and promote sound economic growth to Thomaston by stimulating the expansion of existing businesses, attracting new enterprises, and assuring a favorable community climate for new ideas and economic growth while respecting the character and history of the community. 

The all-volunteer Commission meets on the 2nd Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the Selectmen's Conference Room on the 4th floor of the Town Hall. Members of the Public, especially business owners and commercial property owners, are encouraged to attend.
