David Lehman, Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development commissioner, called the Stamford and New Haven areas “economic powerhouses” Tuesday, but said for the rest of the state to follow suit, more communities need to offer a broader array of housing opportunities.
Lehman made his comments during the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce’s annual Regional Real Estate and Construction forecast event, which was held at WoodWinds in Branford. He said there are 100,000 job openings in the state right now and only 50,000 people looking for work.
