ROBBINSVILLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE (EDAC)
(Resolutions 2005-304 & 2007-240)
The Robbinsville Township Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC) was formed via Resolution 2005-304 by the Washington Township Council on December 22, 2005. Establishment of the Committee was in accordance with Chapter II, Article, 2-1.1 and Article 2.2.1(j) of the Township Administration Code.
The committee serves to coordinate the cultivation and development of Robbinsville Township’s economic potential by aiding business, agriculture, industry and residents in maximizing their full economic potential within the township. The Committee’s efforts reflect its commitment to retaining and expanding existing businesses, concern for new and small business development advocacy, and the determination to aide businesses in addressing their unique economic development needs.
Annually, this committee shall choose a Chair and Vice Chair amongst the members, who shall serve for one year. This Committee meets the first Wednesday of each month.
EDAC pursues two specific objectives:
Local Business Support: EDAC will organize a set of round-table discussions with local business leaders, with the goal of sharing information aboutt community development initiatives, addressing concerns, and building rapport between residents, business leaders, and Township officials.
Public Policy Development: EDAC will identify opportunities for local policy innovation in the area of economic and community development, conduct research, and present recommendations through policy briefs to the Mayor and Township Council.
The EDAC is an active committee where members are expected to advance initiatives with guidance from Township officials. The time commitment for service is one meeting per month, with additional committee work in between meetings and clear deliverables.
If you are interested in serving on the EDAC, please submit a Volunteer Application Form and indicate which of the two objectives you're interested in supporting through your service (Local Business Support or Public Policy Development).
Grand Openings and Ribbon Cuttings: If you are a Robbinsville business and would like to host an official grand opening of your establishment in conjunction with the Township, please email Public Information Officer John Nalbone at email@example.com, or call (609) 259-3600 Ext. 1103.
