Lakewood Township is planning to remake its business and industry image. Lakewood has the second largest industrial/business park in the state, but who knows it? With the right marketing, we can attract businesses. That means more employers, more employees, and more money being spent right here in Lakewood. Township of Lakewood / Lakewood Development Corporation has been looking for a proposal for professional and creative services to rebrand Lakewood. Although this information has been publicized, the department of economic development and the Lakewood UEZ want to make sure the Yeshiva community is especially aware of this opportunity for local businesses to participate. Although time is growing short, it is not too late for you. If you are a marketing company that wants to help Lakewood market itself as a great place ready for business, then contact Anita Doyle at [email protected]. for the RFQ (Request for Qualification). Your application must be delivered by 5:00 p.m. on November 25, 2009.
Remember to keep an eye on the Township Web site (www.twp.lakewood.nj.us/) for all future RFPs (Request for Proposals). For example, a new RFP is due to be posted in the coming days when the Web site is updated. Below is the Web site posting about the remaking of Lakewood’s business/industry image.
