Town Strategy

Easton is committed to attracting new and supporting existing  local businesses through the town's economic development and assistance policies. Easton’s educated workforce,  proximity to universities and research   is a premiere community for opening and sustaining businesses. 


The Covid-19 pandemic has been an incredibly challenging period for small businesses that are part of the fabric of our community. The Town of Easton is proud to have partnered with local stakeholders and Chambers of Commerce to develop new and exciting strategies to help get back to normal. From the successful Easton Outside campaign to aggressively pursuing state grants and other funding opportunities, the Easton Economic Development Council and town leaders  go the extra mile to support business success.


With that in mind, the Town of Easton has targeted three economic development areas for new  and re- development opportunities. Investments in infrastructure, improvements to the permitting process, and updates to modernize zoning have been made to attract new businesses, restaurants and residential development. Each district has been envisioned with it’s own character in mind, and each represents a unique business environment. From the bustling, existing shopping centers of Five Corners, to the historic charm of Downtown North Easton, to the Queset Commercial District set just off Route 24, adjacent to Stonehill College- there is a business district and an opportunity for every kind of business in Easton.
