4. Capitalize on Opportunities

The City of Groton has some unique opportunities due to its:

  • location within the region
  • coastal amenities,
  • excellent road access,
  • available utility infrastructure,
  • array of community facilities, and
  • overall quality of life.

While two of these opportunities have already been mentioned (enhancing sense of place in the city, and encouraging and promoting economic development), there are others which will attract residents, businesses, and visitors and enhance the quality of life in the city:

  • enhance pedestrian / bicycle transportation, and
  • diversify our housing portfolio. 4-14-2
