Economic Progress Continues in Hamilton Township
As Hamilton heads into the winter season, the temperature outside may be dropping, but new businesses continue to be on the rise.
With recent grand openings of Alexandar’s Pharmacy in Kuser Plaza, TJ’s Chop Shop next to Brothers Pizza of Route 33, Briarwood Pharmacy in Briarwood Shopping Center, as well as the recent reopening of the newly renovated McDonald’s on Route 33, Hamilton has continued to enjoy an active economy as of late. This follows October’s announcement that during the past year, Hamilton Township’s ratables increased by $70 million in assessed value – more than any other town in Mercer County.
Over the next few weeks, Hamilton Township will be celebrating the openings of other new businesses, such as First Bank and Papa John’s Pizza.
“The fact that new businesses are continuing to open in Hamilton shows the vibrancy of our local economy during these challenging times and illustrates to others outside of our community that Hamilton is a great place to do business,” says Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo.
And despite the positive economic results of the past year, Hamilton’s Economic Development team is planning to focus even more on marketing the community outside of Hamilton during the coming year to bring in new investment, revive vacant or underutilized retail centers and encourage more jobs for local residents.
“Our job to help maintain and expand economic and job opportunities for our community’s families continues every single day, even after successes like our increase in ratables over the past year,” sums up Mayor Bencivengo. “I am optimistic that our community will enjoy even more economic progress in 2012.”
