The Changing Face of the Economy and How It Affects Hamden 
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
Technology has forever changed the local, state and national economy. It affects retail trade, services that we buy and products that we have come to know. The landscape of retail continues to change. The list keeps getting longer for stores that are closing in the northeast and across the country. According to MoneyMagazine.com and many other publications, it is anticipated that over 25% of all shopping malls in the United States will likely CLOSE by the year 2022.

It Was a Busy 2017 in Economic Development in Hamden! 
Wednesday, January 3, 2018
It’s time to look back on what we have accomplished over the last year. We often go through the holidays thinking about what we are doing after the New Year’s celebration. So let’s look at what actually happened in 2017 and what is in the pipeline for 2018. The Hamden economy is affected by the state and national economy. Given those influences, we have been fortunate to have not lost any significant amount of businesses or jobs in 2017. I believe that this is based on the diversity of our businesses and our efforts to retain them under our Business Cluster Program. Hamden’s unemployment rate is always roughly a half percent lower than the region as a whole, but workforce development remains the most important issue for employers. The unemployment rate keeps getting lower, creating new challenges in meeting employer’s needs.
