One of the goals of the Economic Development Initiative developed by the Town of Chester and the North Warren Chamber of Commerce is to encourage small businesses to locate in the downtown areas of Chestertown and Pottersville.
Town of Chester supervisor, Craig Leggett, said some businesses that opened in 2017 are right on target with the EDI goal of seeing independently owned and operated businesses locating on Main Street.
“We are talking sole proprietorship with up to six employees–that is the sweet spot for businesses opening up in town. These are people who had a dream to open an establishment here and we have the commercial environment where it can work,” Leggett said.
