By Economic Development Research Group and DMJM Harris for the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, 2003
For the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Economic Development Research Group (under subcontract to DMJM Harris) assessed the potential for redevelopment of a set of adjacent vacant industrial properties in Killingly, Connecticut.
EDR Group compiled industry and site location data to evaluate the existing site and alternative competing sites in terms of their features and attractiveness for industrial or commercial development. Staff of EDR Group also conducted interviews with local officials, economic developers, realtors and other business interests to form an overview of the perceived strengths and weaknesses, and corresponding development potentials of the project site.
Based on these sources, the study produced an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for developing sites within the project area, and the possible range and intensities of economic uses associated with the development. The final product was a report identifying economically viable reuse alternatives for the site and the likelihood of finding parties to develop the properties.
Distribution of the report is controlled by the Connecticut Department of Economic Development.
