The geography and infrastructure of Winchester place the town at an advantage to attract new businesses and industries. Winchester is located close to Interstate 91, a major trucking and logistics corridor, and along Routes 10, 78 and 119, which are major roads that connect to Vermont, Massachusetts and Keene, NH. Moreover, These roads make Winchester a desirable location for businesses looking to attract a large and diverse workforce and consumers. According to H. Greg Johnson, local commercial real estate agent, Winchester has large parcels of land and infrastructure in place to attract large industries.
In the business site study, 16 sites were identified as available sites for potential business developments. Of the 16 sites, seven sites are located in the Central Business District and only three of the sites in the Central Business District have existing buildings. The sites range in size with the smallest parcel at 3,235 sq ft to the largest parcel at 10 acres. The abundance of available business sites in the Central Business District could potentially serve as a catalyst for Winchester to develop a revitalization plan for the Central Business District.
Larger parcels of land are located outside the Central Business District. Many of the larger parcels are zoned under the Agriculture/ Aquifer District, which, according to the Zoning Ordinance4, are areas with no municipal water and sewer service and limited permitted uses.
