Why Windham NH is the Place to Be!
Mr. Young believes the responses to the Survey reaffirmed the community vision guiding the Economic Development Section of the 2005 Windham Master Plan. The WEDC will use this Report, the 2005 Master Plan, and resident and business input as points of reference in providing responsible and informed input on economic development to Town Boards, Committees and Commissions.
In a statement released by WEDC Chairman Bob Young, residents of Windham would like more business growth. Those responding to the survey indicated that the impact on property values, where the business is located in the community and the traffic impact and visual aesthetics were most important to respondents when considering business development.
This report will now be used by the committee to provide input on economic development to all town boards, committees and commissions.

...we thought we’d see what cities and states in the US are the best places to get a job. We looked at personal income per capita, unemployment rates, and crime rates to determine which states have the most buoyant economies in this still very difficult economic climate.

New Hampshire’s small businesses are key to the state’s well-being. They account for a significant share of the state’s economic production and hiring. This profile from the Office of Advocacy uses the latest available data to illustrate the status and contributions of New Hampshire small businesses.
Business NH Magazine has reported that Windham is ranked 23rd in New Hampshire for the number of private businesses in 2009, the most recent year for which the numbers are available. There were 368 private businesses with an average annual employment of 2,634 people.
In addition, the Town was ranked 29th in New Hampshire for employment and wages in 2009. In 2009, Windham businesses, non-profit organizations and governmental sectors employed 3,099 people, for an average weekly wage of $812.00, and we had an unemployment rate of 4.2%.
Although these figures are from 2009, Windham has seen a steady increase in business activity that I do not anticipate slowing down. Windham continues to be a desirable location is for economic development activities.
