Easton Industrial Land Development Company, Inc.

PROJECTS

CURRENT MISSION: Downtown Historic Easton

From 1997 through today, the EAILD mission has been to help provide leadership and financing opportunities to facilitate the acquisition and restoration of commercial buildings in our National Register Historic District (Department of Interior, Washington, D. C.) and Local Historic District, both in Easton's downtown. There is no question that Easton is undergoing a dynamic renaissance, with its PA Main Street program, Easton Farmers' Market, and the Easton Ambassadors, hundreds of State Theatre shows, arts community, award-winning restaurants and tourist attractions, suitable historic preservation projects, and more!

50 Years of Successful Business Economic Development

The Easton Area Industrial Land Development Company was created in 1961 (it was known as the Easton Area Promotion Corporation). The purpose of the organization was and is to improve the employment base by attracting industry and businesses to our community. During the past 50 years we have helped companies relocate as well as expanding their facilities, but we didnít do it alone. EAILD, as the catalyst, together with State and Local Government agencies, in addition to business and community support, has made it all happen. EAILD is dedicated to serving the community through economic development and job creation, expansion and retention.

 

Today there are now 6000 people employed in the Forks and Palmer Industrial Parks. Two Industrial Parks were developed in Forks Township after the purchase of 120 acres.

In Forks Township, on the left just before the intersection of Uhler and Kesslersville Roads you will see the completed Forks Industrial Park IV. This tract contains twelve industrial lots fully improved including a bike path around the perimeter of the park. This tract was developed at a cost of more than 2.1 million.

The Palmer Industrial Park located on Tatamy Road was purchased in 1968. Today, all 17 lots are sold in Palmer with plants built and occupied.

Weíve helped Northampton County build an excellent economic tradition based on an outstanding work ethic and a well-trained work force; a location central to consumer and business markets; extensive natural resources; and the development of renowned academic, scientific, and medical institutions.

Today, Pennsylvania remains at the core of Americaís growth, leading the way with a dynamic mix of advanced health care, technology, education, research and development, manufacturing, and more. By building on these strengths, Pennsylvania maintains a fertile environment to ensure economic growth. Our comprehensive incentive and financing programs and our positive  Lehigh Valley business climate continue to attract many of the nationís leading firms. LVEDC (resource page) is the driving force for this national attraction marketing.

The Commonwealth Governor's and Legislative leadership is continuing our strong Pennsylvania tradition of developing sustainable economic development activities. The Lehigh Valley region has won State and National recognition in Site Selection Magazine and other periodicals for its ability to attract, retain, and expand our diversified business and employment base. Our future is bright! We are no longer acquiring land in our surrounding townships.

EASTON AMBASSADORS
Since the inception of the program in Spring 2008, thanks in large part to the City of Easton government and private contributions, the Ambassadors have provided assistance to business owners, residents and visitors by helping to improve the cleanliness and safety of the downtown. Administered by Block-by-Block, they work hard to make Easton a welcoming destination and improve the quality of life for existing businesses, residents and visitors. They can be seen in any weather, from early morning until late at night, sprucing up, removing graffiti, providing directional assistance, planting and watering, mulching, or shoveling snow in winter. They play a crucial role in the ongoing economic development of Easton's downtown.
