Why Phillipsburg, New Jersey?

It is a combination of cultural, historic, natural and economic development. The fundamentals are sound with the added services of a cooperative state, county and local government, the package is complete. 

Benefits of Eco-Tourism?

Each designated Opportunity Zone has a "hook" used to attract investors. Shopping, transportation and medical services account for many areas.  One issue is the long-term sustainability taking into account the migration of households in and out of metropolitan areas.  Eco-Tourism is sustainable over time. History and the ability for residents and visitors to take advantage of our surroundings will always be in demand. Issued construction and repair permits are trending up over the last 10 months as more people are discovering the same model as was created between Lambertville, NJ and New Hope PA.  A partnership to tourism as a funding source. Easton has already accomplished many of the goals with Phillipsburg ready to follow the great work across the river.
