ECONOMIC Development 

Economic Development is the sustained, concerted actions of policy makers and communities that promote the standard of living and economic health of a specific area. The Borough first adopted nonarea-wide economic development powers in 1986 through the adoption of Ordinance 575. In 1990 the voters approved the adoption of area-wide economic development powers by the Borough via Ordinance 772 A, and in 1999 the Assembly adopted Ordinance 1106, establishing an economic development assistance program.
