Looking  to the future

Friday, October 26, 2012

The Brookline Economic Development Committee, selectmen and the Planning Board have the right idea by trying to attract new businesses to town, and doing what it can to retain those that have been faithful to the community.

Officials realize the need to safeguard the town’s future. We hope it all comes to fruition. It takes a lot of work to create an economic plan, especially when a town wants to maintain its character.

This move is a win-win, as it will help ease the tax burden on residents, draw customers to help businesses grow, and ensure the town’s prosperity.

As Town Administrator Tad Putney said, “This is the first step in hopefully a multi-step process of developing an economic plan for Brookline.”

The town is inviting business owners and managers to present their views and ideas to a forum on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 6-8 p.m., at the Brookline Event Center, located at 32 Proctor Hill Road. Brookline business owners can register for the event by calling Putney at 673-8855, ext. 213.

Also on the town’s website, www.brookline.nh.us, business owners can fill out a survey seeking information about their companies, their prospective markets and what Brookline can do to help.

If your business is considering relocating, take a look at Brookline – the town is waiting with open arms.
