DOWNTOWN NOW! Developer Interest

Date: March 8, 2017

Derby's downtown planning efforts are paying off!  A smart plan built through community consensus has captured the attention of the development community. 

Please refer to recent articles in the New Haven Register and Connecticut Post.  This response is a testament to the value of comprehensive planning and incremental development.

Though there is still a lot of work to be done, I am encouraged by the momentum we are building.  

Thank you again for your continued support as we build a better Derby together.  

Warmest regards,


Anita Dugatto, Mayor
City of Derby
