Roxbury Launches New Website Aimed at Drawing Businesses

ROXBURY, NJ – As promised in November, the Roxbury Township Economic Development Committee (EDC) has launched a website designed to convince businesses that the township is a great place to settle.

The site was designed using “industry best practices,” said EDC member John Wetzel at its unveiling this week during a Roxbury Mayor and Council meeting. That means it is easy to read and requires the fewest number of clicks to get to a destination, he said.

Among the features found on the site is a section that shows commercial properties in Roxbury available for sale or lease. Users can search by lot size, corridors (Route 10, Route 46 and Route 206), type and category. The site also displays a Google map of the region that displays the properties.

Although the site is primarily focused on Roxbury’s attributes, it contains a number of links to other sites that the EDC believes will be helpful to businesses, such as the state’s “Business Portal,” which officers information about financing and incentives. There are also links to the state Economic Development Authority’s website and the websites of the Morris County Economic Development Corporation and county transportation department.

Wetzel is particularly happy that the site, built by Fuel 180 Creative of Fairfield, offers users an easy way to attain business counseling through the SCORE.

The site will be managed by Wetzel and Lucinda Bryant, who is the executive assistant to Roxbury Township Manager Chris Raths.

Members of the council, including Roxbury Councilman Bob DeFillippo, praised Wetzel and the EDC for creating the site. “This is a vision that goes back a number of years,” he said. “This is in response to a need we identified years ago: Other communities were much more visible than we were and businesses were moving to them that could have moved here.”
