Economic Development Commission

The Dalton Development and Industrial Commission (DIC) is the town’s economic development agency. The town, at the 2002 Annual Town Meeting, established it. Under state law the commission is authorized to “promote and develop the industrial resources of the town” and to “investigate and assist in the establishment of educational or commercial projects for the purpose of strengthening the local economy.” 2003 was the first full year of operation for the commission. In June of 2009, the town approved the creation of the Dalton Redevelopment Authority (DRA), a special purpose economic development agency.  Redevelopment Authorities have broad powers to undertake community renewal projects including cleanup of so called Brownfield sites. Five members of the DIC act as members of the DRA, one of which is the Governor’s appointment.
