Question/Comment: What can be done to strengthen Winter Hill businesses?
City Update 12/1/2009: The Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD) attempts to match business owners looking for space with vacancies whenever possible. However, this task has become more difficult in the current recession and improvement is anticipated when the economy strengthens.
City Update 5/9/2008: The area is not eligible for federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) so there is no existing funding available to establish an official Main Streets group. However, the Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD) will carry out a study of all major business districts, including Winter Hill, to determine what kind of businesses will succeed in the area and to market the area to prospective businesses.
