Our Mission

Welcome to Voluntown, CTThe mission of the Voluntown Economic Development Commission is to foster economic development in Voluntown and increase the tax base by retaining existing businesses and helping them grow, encouraging indigenous business start-up, and recruiting light industry

Through this website the Voluntown EDC intends to promote Voluntown to prospective businesses and visitors, by highlighting what our town has to offer them.

We hope the new website makes it easier for residents to access information on Voluntown EDC activities. The Voluntown Farmers’ Market, and Voluntown Methodist Church Project pages will be updated frequently. Check back often!

The Voluntown EDC would like to highlight local businesses right here on this website. If you would like to nominate a business to be highlighted, please email us at edc@voluntown.gov . Highlighted business spots may include photos, description of services, introduction of owner(s), and a link to website and social media outlets.
