Community and Business Opportunity Initiative
This work group is looking at viable means of local investment in projects to sustain business re-commitment to the area. Various models are under consideration such as Community Development Corporations, microloanings, investment clubs, and cooperatives. This is a great ground level opportunity to begin the process of connecting investors with entrepreneurs to help all, while building a prosperous northeast/Hodges Square Community!
One of our neighbor's biggest concerns is repeatedly the poor signage, particularly on Williams Street. We are currently working on a Welcome Sign to be placed just off of I-95, and will soon be working to improve way-finding signs for the many destinations in the New London Area.
The Hodges Square Monument
Our trademark historic Hodges Square Monument was returned to its original location in Hodges Square. The Lyman Allyn Museum had been safely housing the monument on their property since 1973; with their support we are now returning it back to Hodges Square. A brief Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held at 10AM on October 24, 2015, at the new monument site in front of the Hodges Square Building.
