Hazlet, NJ - Ted Koczon, President of the Hazlet Business Owners Association is pleased to announce that a new committee has been formed to focus on business development along the two highway corridors that run through the Township.

•     Serving as a conduit between the commercial economic interests in Hazlet Township and the municipal government;

•     Encouraging the economic well-being and expansion of the existing commercial businesses located within the Township;

•     Responsibly assisting in developing properties within Hazlet Township in an effort to improve the aesthetics of the township while providing additional revenue; and,

•     Reviewing Township ordinances, policies, and practices to determine their impact on existing and proposed commercial businesses.
