Planned Amazon distribution center in Naugatuck Valley could bring 1,000 jobs, officials say

The Bluewater Property Group was selected from a request for proposal process launched last July, said Thomas Hyde, chief executive officer of Naugatuck Valley Regional Development Corp., which is representing the two communities in the process. The selection of Bluewater Property Group and its involvement with Amazon was announced Tuesday morning at Waterbury City Hall at an event attended by Gov. Ned Lamont. Hyde said the next step in the process is for Bluewater Property Group to perform its due diligence on the property, which the company has up to six months to do. At the same time, he said, Naugatuck Valley Regional Development Corp. will be crafting a sales agreement to sell the property. “Any time there is an opportunity to create jobs, of course politicians are going to latch onto it,” Cadden said. “But the big issue here is the quality of the jobs and are they really worth it.”
