Welcome to the City of Chicopee

 

The City of Chicopee is known as the crossroads of New England. This has been so for over 150 years. Going back to the industrial revolution the City's location at the confluence of the Chicopee and Connecticut Rivers gave it a natural advantage over many other potential development sites in western New England. The rivers provided power and transportation opportunities not available in many other communities.

As the industrial revolution waned, Interstate Routes 90 and 91 were built and have become the commercial corridor for all of New England. Both these interstates run through Chicopee and are easily accessible. This has provided Chicopee with present day development advantages. The City of Chicopee is also home to Westover Air Reserve Base, the largest air reserve base in the United States. The airfield has a civilian terminal and the longest runway in New England.

Chicopee also has a municipal electric company which allows pricing substantially better than the larger commercial utilities and delivery of superior customer service. Chicopee's geographic location and business friendly approach make the City a wonderful place to work, locate or relocate a business and to raise a family.
