Welcome to the Town of Rocky Hill, Connecticut. This website is an overview of the various Town Departments and their accomplishments during the past year. Our Town is known as a wonderful location for families and businesses to grow. We have an outstanding educational system and through prudent management continue to maintain one of the lowest mill rates in the region (25.9 mills for 2012-2013). The Town has an active Parks and Recreation Program with programs to please all age groups and interests. The Town has completed a $1,000,000 renovation project at Ferry Park with improved boat launch areas and a handicapped accessible fishing pier.
Rocky Hill’s joint venture with neighboring Wethersfield to enhance and improve the Silas Deane Highway is progressing nicely with the adoption of guidelines for a façade improvement program. This program is a rebate based program which will provide businesses with a grant that reimburses them for the construction of a new façade in accordance with the program guidelines. The State of Connecticut has granted $1,000,000 to the Town for this program.
Rocky Hill’s vision of the future includes preservation of historic areas and maintenance of a comfortable mix of amenities and housing choices for all age groups. It is the Town’s intention to grow in such a fashion that we have a mix of both residential and commercial properties. This mix will support the growth needed to maintain the services the residents and businesses have come to expect while keeping the tax burden in check.
Our Town is well positioned to accommodate growth and community reinvestment without sacrificing our caring small community atmosphere.
