Economic development is an identified priority of Lawrence Township, in recognition of which Township Council passed a resolution adopting three goals:

  1. Reduce the commercial site vacancy rate by retaining existing businesses and attracting new enterprises into previously used sites.
  2. Improve the overall business climate and quality of life through increased awareness of neighborhood character and appearance, considering the needs and concerns of both residents and business owners.
  3. Foster a reasonable mix of residential and commercial properties throughout the Township, consistent with the goals of the Master Plan.

The Business Advocate's function is to actively advance the accomplishment of these goals by facilitating the process doing business in Lawrence Township. The Business Advocate acts as an ombudsman to help resolve disagreements and disputes.

Please take best advantage of these free services by contacting the advocate as early in the process as possible.
