Ribbon cuttingThe grand opening and ribbon-cutting of the new Wilton Riverwalk Stony Brook Trail took place on Sunday, June 13th, 2021 at 11:00. Many Wilton residents joined the festivities and listened to the speeches by Jennifer Beck, Kellie-Sue Boissonnault, Kermit Williams and Ron Brown before Kellie-Sue cut the ribbon and invited folks to walk the trail. Ron also dedicated a memorial bench to long-time Wilton resident and volunteer, Spencer C. Brookes.  Todd Fahey, State Director, AARP New Hampshire also sent along some congratulatory words for a project well-done!

Stony Brook trailThe new trail is a solar-lit, handicapped accessible walkway along the northern bank of Stony Brook, with plantings, placemaking signage, benches, sculptures and access to fishing spots. This trail was made possible through a $19,711 AARP Community Challenge grant as well as a permanent easement of land along the river by TDS Telecomm as well as key contributions by the Wilton Conservation Commission in partnership with the Economic Development Team.

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.

Active Projects

The Economic Development Team organizes and prioritizes projects in six broad categories, which were developed in conjunction with the NRPC during a visioning session in 2017.  These include:
Business Development

Our projects are further categorized as low, medium and high priority.  This list is a living document – as we complete projects, new ones are also being added.  . For details on our active and completed projects, see the Eco-Dev Prioritized Projects List.

    We're always looking for motivated volunteers to help with our projects. If you are interested, please send an email to [email protected]gov with your interest.
