“The Town of Cheektowaga is Western New York’s leading location for companies, families, and visitors alike. Our diverse economic base includes professional firms, innovative manufacturers, logistics operations, and retail/hospitality businesses. Cheektowaga’s unparalleled combination of air, rail, and highway access, livable residential neighborhoods, high-quality education and recreation, world-class shopping, and convenience to all of upstate New York and Southern Ontario, makes us the Hub of the Niagara Frontier.”
The vision statement above, which is from the draft of our new Cheektowaga Comprehensive Plan, embraces the economic development strategy we have for the Town of Cheektowaga. Maintaining the existing business community while also growing new business and industry, which can create good paying jobs for our residents, is vitally important and we will make every effort to assist in making connections that will see a project through to fruition.
The welcome mat is out to all companies and investors looking for the type of community described in our vision statement to grow their business.
Cheektowaga, as the home to this region’s leading transportation hub, the
Buffalo Niagara International Airport, and Walden Galleria, the premier shopping destination, is very familiar to our Canadian neighbors who utilize both heavily. Cheektowaga is well positioned to provide Canadian companies and investors looking to expand into the United States with a home away from home.
If you have a project that we can help with, make your first step contact with the office of Cheektowaga Town Supervisor Diane Benczkowski, at (716) 686-3465 or by email at email@example.com. She will see to it that all the pertinent Town departments and other necessary agencies are at the table right from the beginning.
Among the current resources we can call upon for possible assistance are the Cheektowaga Economic Development Corporation and, also, Mr. Paul Leone, Cheektowaga’s Economic Development Consultant. Paul has a broad knowledge of the various State and regional programs available to assist with business development. Supervisor Benczkowski also is a member of the executive board of the Erie County Industrial Development Agency.
Our new Cheektowaga Comprehensive Plan is currently being drafted and a key component will focus on economic development strategies which will provide the basis by which we can enhance our Town’s profile and demonstrate the positive aspects of locating here.
The Town of Cheektowaga enjoys an excellent working relationship with the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is among of the Town's most active organizations and one which contributes positively to the Town's economic base while also working with public officials for efficiency within our local government.
