Economic Development Advisory Committee

EDAC is dedicated to promoting healthy economic growth throughout Eatontown. We are a robust committee with representatives from nationally recognized corporations as well as entrepreneurs from the fields of finance, high tech, retail, hospitality, health care, automotive, real estate, plus municipal officials and residents.

We monitor the fiscal climate in Eatontown:

  • Looking to relocate to the economic and transportation hub of eastern Monmouth County?
  • Want a gateway presence on the Jersey Shore?
  • Seeking advice about your current business?

Consider us a resource.

EDAC provides first-hand analysis of planning and zoning initiatives, traffic patterns, and employment conditions. We are alert to the on-going discussions for the redevelopment of the electronics command at Fort Monmouth located along Eatontown’s northeastern perimeter.A copy of the ordinance that created EDAC in September 2008 may be obtained from the Borough Clerk. Information about local, state, and federal programs that will help you grow your business in Eatontown may be found here.

We meet at 3 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month, except legal holidays. The location is the Council Room on the second floor of Borough Hall. It is handicap-accessible. All are invited to attend these open public meetings and to suggest action items for our agenda.
