SHIP BOTTOM, N.J.
Southern Ocean Chamber partners with Ship Bottom on Downtown Driven Program
- Jan. 2, 2018
-- Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, a globally accredited Destination Management Organization, introduced their Downtown Driven Economic Development Program this past year. Its purpose is to work with local governments and merchant led groups to help establish direction of the discussion regarding immediate and long term needs that foster a strong business community. The goal is to build a network to distribute resources to community based organizations focusing on improving shopping districts, aesthetics and ordinances that will drive new business/employers to the district.
Ship Bottom Councilman Rossi and Concilman Valyo motioned for the resolution on December 26, 2017 to begin the partnership, adding to Boroughs of Beach Haven, Tuckerton and Barnegat Township who are also involved with the program. Representatives from the Southern Ocean Chamber, Ship Bottom Merchants Association and Ship Bottom Council will begin setting priorities and outcomes in 2018.
The Southern Ocean County Chamber offices are located in Ship Bottom at 265 West Ninth Street and has been active with the borough in many projects including the Christmas Parade.
