WEST HAVEN, Oct. 24, 2016 — Mayor Edward M. O’Brien is featured in the October issue of Connecticut Town & City for leading West Haven’s economic recovery.

O’Brien and the city are highlighted on Page 28 of the Economic Development section of the magazine, which is published monthly by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities.

“West Haven is on the cusp of an economic rebirth, one that Mayor Edward M. O’Brien hopes will shape and strengthen the landscape of the city’s business climate in the decades ahead,” according to the article, titled “Developing Story: Private Investment, Public Support Spur Growth in West Haven.”

The story, which includes a color rendering of The Atwood mixed-use development on Route 1 in Allingtown, highlights a number of economic development projects that have been initiated under the O’Brien administration.

“Ripe for development, West Haven is teeming with economic development opportunities to grow its grand list of taxable property,” according to the article, adding: “West Haven’s groundswell of contemporary development initiatives are blazing a new frontier of development in the city, an upward trend that has not gone unnoticed. Because of the city’s creative, modern, and sophisticated planning, O’Brien recently participated in the East Regional Session of the Mayors’ Institute on City Design (MICD) in Miami, Florida. The invitation-only event was limited to eight mayors, eight design and real estate development experts, and MICD partners.”
