The Somerset County Regional Center

 The Somerset County Regional Center is the focal point for the economic, social, and cultural activities of an economic region. In May of 1996, the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Commission designated the Boroughs of Somerville and Raritan and an adjacent portion of Bridgewater Township as the first multi-jurisdictional Regional Center in the state. Since that time, the Regional Center has become the model for inter-municipal cooperation and accomplishment. Recently, the Regional Center Partnership (Board of Directors) has authorized funds to embark on an internal and external marketing initiative under the banner, “Amazing Things Are Happening in the Regional Center.”

The program will showcase the Regional Center as a highly attractive location to work, live, shop, and enjoy recreation. For use as an investment and business recruitment tool, the program will highlight the significant quality of life amenities in and near the Center including, but not limited to natural features and attractions; cultural attractions; programs and events; access to services and resources; major economic initiatives; and infrastructure investment.

A dynamic Toolkit has been developed for hard copy and electronic distribution to our partners in the Regional Center and to outside interests for use as a business attraction/retention tool.

Imagine  your business, non-profit, educational institution, or government agency is about to reach out to a population that is completely unaware of who you are and what you do. These promotional materials are now ready for you to develop a concise and dynamic program that features the Regional Center as the core of New Jersey’s most progressive county.

The Somerset County Regional Center is made possible by the financial, technical, and administrative support of the Board of Chosen Freeholders and the financial support of the participating municipalities.
