  • Our new brochure is ready to go to print (almost), and

Professional Development Events

How much time do you spend in Manchester? Do you shop at the mall, work downtown, eat on Main Street, hike Case Mountain, or drink craft beer? Manchester is growing and diversifying… and it is no accident. Having worked for the Town of Manchester for the past 22 months, I’ve been able to witness:
·         Innovative strategic planning,
·         Proactive investment in small businesses,
·         A burgeoning art scene, and
·         Renewal of the downtown district. 

Community Resources & Events
