Orangetown Town Supervisor Chris Day announced phase one of the town’s new “Orangetown is Open for Business” initiative to highlight “our exceptional existing business residents that contribute so much to our community while helping to boost those entrepreneurs and organizations bringing new and exciting businesses to Orangetown.”
As part of the initiative, Day will promote ribbon cuttings of new businesses and a month “Featured Business Resident” listing. Both of those efforts will be supported on the town’s social media platforms, website and emails.
Future phases of the program may include downtown revitalization programs, joint government-private sector working groups to market and increase occupancy at major corporate campuses in the town, grant competitions, and partnerships with local colleges.
“It is my intent that when someone is deciding where to open up or relocate a business to, they look at Orangetown and see what a good fit our different hamlets and villages can be, from Pearl River across to Piermont and Nyack down to Palisades, and everywhere in between,” Day said.
