What is Bi-Town Housing?

The Bi-Town Economic Development Committee was created many years ago to work on Economic Development issues in Dover and Wilmington. A housing sub-committee of Bi-Town was created in 2017 to discuss the growing housing needs in our community. Our committee meets monthly to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and overall plan for housing in the Deerfield Valley.
