About Orange Economic Development Corporation

In 1997, the Town of Orange and a group of Orange businesses created the Orange Economic Development Corporation to develop a comprehensive approach to economic development. Through the years, the OEDC has managed and maintained a series of economic development initiatives that have helped the Town of Orange thrive along the commercial corridor known as the Boston Post Road (Route 1) and Industrial Zone located off Interstate 95’s Marsh Hill Road interchange.

The Town of Orange has a strong economic development team, which is led by the Town's First Selectman in close concert with the Orange Economic Development Corporation, the town’s Economic Development Commission and the Orange Chamber of Commerce.

This collective has engaged in public improvement such as the construction of Edison Road (completed in 2015), the installation of the Boston Post Road Decorative Lighting Program and business marketing initiatives such as the Annual Orange Business & Community Expo and the publication of OrangeLife Magazine. All of these exercises, along with the day-to-day operations of the economic development program have helped make Orange a great place to work and live.
