Improving the Quality of Jobs

Supporting Entrepreneurship

Although unemployment has been declining in Nashua, many new jobs are low-paying positions, particularly in the arts and the medical industry. To better support these sectors and attract higher-paying jobs, the city of Nashua is working to promote entrepreneurship, increase access to training, and incubate arts and technology businesses.

District Development

Revitalized Assets

In order to promote the creation of new, job-creating businesses and reduce rental prices, the city of Nashua is planning to further develop the Millyard District into a mixed-use zone through residential infill and repurposing existing buildings into affordable office, commercial and light industrial spaces. The Millyard is a prime example of how a single project can catalyze new economic activity and the city is now working to improve the connections between the Millyard District and the existing Downtown to spur even more multiplier effects.
