Berlin Town Profile

Berlin is a beautiful suburban town situated in the geographical center of Connecticut, midway between Boston and New York. It's rich historical background includes agriculture, tin and brick making and it is known for being the home of the Yankee Peddler. Currently, Berlin enjoys being home to a diverse base of business and industry while maintaining the rural characteristics of years past.

The best of "Northeast" living is at Berlin's residents' fingertips. Berlin is near the Metropolitan Center of the Northeast and yet far enough removed from these centers to provide the "peace and safety" of "small town America" that most people seem to be seeking.

Berlin is, in land size, one of the larger towns within the region. We have the land to grow. It is a town that successfully provides for all age groups. It is a town that can support it's businesses. And it is a town that can supply qualified people to drive its businesses.

Housing in Berlin consists mainly of single family dwellings with an additional small percentage of multiple family dwellings.

The town has a Mayor / Town Council form of government. Berlin provides, to it's residents, one of the best recreational programs of any town throughout the state. Also, Berlin more than meets the State requirements in the field of education in all areas. Berlin retains the "flavor" of small town, yet meets all the requirements for growth.

With the completion of the Central Connecticut Expressway, Berlin is one of the most accessible towns in Connecticut. The geographic center of the state, Berlin is directly connected to all major cities by the expressway. Thus, we can expect continued growth in the areas of manufacturing, offices, and wholesale and distribution trade.
