Thirty-Year Relationship Helping to Drive Strong Ties, Economic Development

Legislators and staff at the State Capitol in Hartford were recently offered the opportunity to learn more about a long-standing partnership in Connecticut – known as the Bradley Development League.

Founded in 1995, The Bradley Development League is a consortium of the four towns that surround Bradley International Airport (BDL) – East Granby, Suffield, Windsor and Windsor Locks. The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) is also part of the league, along with the MetroHartford Alliance, AdvanceCT, and representatives from the business community within the four towns. Leaders and stakeholders within each entity of the Bradley Development League come together to coordinate on economic development initiatives, maximize business and tourism potential, and strengthen the ties between the community and the airport.

All four towns represented in the Bradley Development League and the CAA assembled at the Capitol on April 24 so lawmakers could meet leaders from each entity and learn more about their initiatives. Also in attendance were local businesses and AdvanceCT – an affiliate organization that helps to drive job creation and capital investment in Connecticut.

State Rep. Tami Zawistowski helped plan and host the event to showcase the Bradley Development League, in conjunction with State Rep. Jane Garibay and State Sen. John Kissel.
