Welcome to Downtown Riverhead. The Community Development Agency functions as the economic development agency for the Town of Riverhead and was established in 1982 under New York State General Municipal Law to foster economic development. Using powers granted under New York State Urban Renewal Law, pursuant to Section 505 of Article 15, the Community Development Agency has played a critical role in economic development at Calverton Enterprise Park, as well as downtown. The CDA Board consists of the Chairman (the Town Supervisor) and the four Town board members. In the capacity as the economic development agency of the Town of Riverhead, the CDA administers and secures financing for numerous downtown revitalization projects and public improvement projects. The CDA has been proactive in fostering economic revitalization in the downtown business district and was a major impetus in the establishment of a 3.2 acre waterfront aquarium.
