The Deerfield Valley towns of Wilmington and Dover are working together and independently on economic development plans aimed at improving the quality of life of residents, employers, and visitors to our area.
The Mount Snow Valley Chamber of Commerce is committed to the efforts put forth by these two emerging groups:
Dover Economic Development Committee - The Dover Economic Development Committee (often referred to as the "DEDC") was created by mandate of the voters in Dover at the 2007 Town Meeting. This group advocated for passage of a 1% tax to be dedicated to economic development and improving and enhancing the quality of life in Dover for residents and visitors alike.

Following the flood resulting from hurricane Irene, the town of Wilmington and the Bi-Town committee have again united to work on Long Term Community Recovery for economic development. Begun with FEMA assistance this process continues with the work of over 30 committees tasked with developing needed projects to ensure Long Term Recovery. As these reports become public records we will post them here for public review.
Additionally the Mount Snow Valley Chamber is actively working with the Brattleboro Development Corporation to secure funding under the Economic Development Agency grant process.
