Economic Development

Milton... We Are Open For Business.

Welcome to the Economic Development section of the Milton NH website, developed by the Milton Economic Development Committee (MEDC) with the support of the Milton Board of Selectmen and the Town Administrator. We define economic development in a broad sense…“a series of planned activities designed to increase the number of jobs and investment in the community.”

The Town of Milton is beginning the process of economic development. The Town’s basic goal is to provide tools and assistance that encourage existing businesses to expand and to attract new commercial and industrial projects that are compatible with Milton and its beautiful natural environment. Our primary focus is to:

  • Assist existing businesses with potential expansion plans; 
  • Assist existing businesses in working with the Town;
  • Provide insight and assistance to businesses in working with local boards and departments during the development review, approval and permitting processes;
  • Provide relocation and site selection information and assistance;
  • Encourage a positive regulatory environment towards business; and
  • Encourage the creation and maintenance of a strong economic development infrastructure.
