Hebron Center Market Study

The Town of Hebron and its Economic Development Commission hired Peter Fairweather, of Fairweather Consulting, to conduct a Market Study of Hebron’s Business District.  Over a number of years, the Town of Hebron has made a commitment to reinvest in Hebron Center to create a successful, dynamic, and walkable Town center.  This study takes another step in that process. The work identified potential commercial uses that could be attracted to, or expanded in, Hebron.  The study includes an analysis of the existing market potential in Hebron and thecover surrounding area, and includes a “benchmark” of Hebron against other downtown centers to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of Hebron Center.  The final study identifies the types of uses for which Hebron Center has a competitive advantage and an action plan to attract those uses to the Center.  The consultant and the Economic Development Commission, through a number of forums, reached out to businesses and other stakeholders to seek their input.  You can read the Hebron Center Market Study here.

 

Hebron’s Tax Abatement Policies

The Hebron Economic Development Commission, in conjunction with the Town Manager, Town Planner, and Board of Selectmen, helped to create a Tax Abatement Policy which pro-actively encourages new business entities to consider Hebron as their next business location or for existing businesses to further expand their operations in Hebron. Within certain guidelines, considerable advantages may exist for any business to grow within our community.  Applications must be made in advance of submitting applications to our Land Use Commissions.  The Board of Selectmen has some flexibility in granting abatements on a case by case basis.

For a complete copy of the Tax Abatement Policies, feel free to contact the Town Planning Department or the Hebron Economic Development Coordinator at hedc@hebronct.com .
