— The Byram Economic Development Advisory Committee is reaching out to its businesses and residents for advice.

At a recent committee meeting on April 10, the advisory group approved two questionnaires designed for local business owners, as well as township residents.

“We really want to hear from the people of Byram,” said Nancy Eisenberg, advisory committee co-chair and developer of the questionnaires. “We need as many suggestions as possible on how we can help our amazing Byram businesses succeed.”

The committee members, each appointed in January by the Byram Township Council, will begin sharing the questionnaires with a sampling of residents and owners for early input and to fine-tune the questions.

After the initial trial, the questionnaire will be circulated in May and June at local Byram business locations and on the township website.

The questionnaires focus on soliciting ideas for improving Byram’s business conditions, advancing a better business image for the township, and involving residents in helping local businesses succeed.

“We believe our greatest asset in Byram is our people,” said Eisenberg, “And we think they’ll have some great ideas.”

Business owners and residents need to know that we are listening, said Fred Norton, advisory committee chair.

“In spite of the challenges we’ve all seen with the lengthy Route 206 project, we believe we can build a fresh start for our existing businesses, as well as attracting new businesses into town,” Norton said.

Additional committee members include Kate Reinhardt, Bradley Boyle, Ed Amoroso, Vic Pocorobba, Earl Riley, Eric Serrilli and Joann Smith.
