Business & Economic Development

Business Directory Questionnaire

The Township of Scotch Plains has made a long-standing commitment to creating a vibrant downtown and community for its residents and visitors. In conjunction with our downtown redevelopment efforts, the Township will be establishing a Business and Economic Development webpage to help promote the properties, businesses, attractions, and organizations which are the backbone of the Scotch Plains Community.

 

This webpage will soon feature a business directory, promotional videos, how to open a business in Scotch Plains, and information on our trade area, so please check back for regular updates.  

 

The Township government looks forward to forming public-private partnerships with private businesses, property owners, and organizations to foster economic growth, revitalization, investments, business development, and marketing in Scotch Plains.
