MissionTo make Enfield a healthy, safe, prosperous and desirable place to live.
This is achieved through the administration of laws and regulations that govern development within the community. It is also accomplished by obtaining outside resources to supplement the Town's general fund and assist with redevelopment projects. We strive to create a pro-growth environment that promotes local business.
Enfield enjoys a superior location with direct highway access. We are the heart of the Springfield – Hartford Knowledge Corridor.
