Business Development Incentive Policy

The Town of Rocky Hill, Connecticut recognizes the need for encouraging appropriate commercial growth in our community. Through the use of tax abatements, the Town may provide incentives to individual projects which demonstrate long term commitment to the town through the provision of jobs, extraordinary site development costs to protect the environment, revitalization of underutilized properties and expansion of existing business.

All abatements will be consistent with state statutes and projects must demonstrate a special benefit to the community for consideration. All abatements must be approved by the Town Council.
