Our Mission:

ABOUT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT:

In June 2010, the functions of the Department of Economic Development and Regional Planning were assumed by the Burlington County Bridge Commission from the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Merging the economic development and planning role of the department with the Bridge Commission Improvement Authority capitalized on the strengths of the department and the authority thus developing synergies between the two.

Through economic development and improvement authority powers granted to the Burlington County Bridge Commission in 2002, the Commission has been able to offer Burlington County public entities unique pooled financing options as well as assistance in their economic development, redevelopment, and community revitalization projects.

The result of this effort was the creation of an agency with strengths in working with local government and lending to public and private sectors. In essence, the Commission is now Burlington County’s agent for economic development and regional planning. In addition, it administers the County’s loan programs, offers other pooled loan and lease financings, manages U.S. Census and other important data, and in collaboration with the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders, offers shared services that have saved taxpayer more than $14 million dollars.

In 2008, the Bridge Commission received Burlington County Chamber of Commerce’s “Voice of Business” award  for its Economic Development initiatives
