2018 Re-cap

2018 was a very exciting year for the Economic Development Team, and you can find a complete 2018 wrap up HERE in our latest newsletter.  We are particularly excited about two recent developments:

Wilton RiverwalkRiverwalk

The landscape architects from GPI are now hard at work at producing a design plan for the next phase of the Riverwalk, and will have the draft set of plans in January. This will be followed by a public presentation in February, so stay tuned for further details.

Tourist Train

Tourist trainWe have filed a Letter of Interest (LOI) with the Private/Public Partnership oversight Committee (P3) in Concord and await their decision on the train. If favorable, they would hand the project to DOT for competitive bid.


We're always looking for motivated volunteers to help with our 32 projects. Whether you want to help bring back the tourist train, identify potential new businesses, do pop-up prototypes to test new ideas or any of the other areas we are working on, you can end an email to [email protected] with your interest.


Wilton's Economic Development Leadership Team serves the citizens and business owners of Wilton and reports to the Select Board and the Town Administrator. This team's responsibilities are to set priorities, make recommendations, and guide the execution of programs and projects that help achieve the vision of Wilton residents to remain a vibrant and thriving small town. Our goals are to protect its rural environment, historic charm, and natural resources while promoting opportunities for residential and business growth that are compatible with, responsive to and supportive of the needs of the community and local economy.
