Community & Economic Development 

The Department of Community and Economic Development (LVED) is the first point of contact for new businesses, developers looking to provide commercial and residential opportunities, or established businesses looking to invest and expand within the Borough.

Boards & Commissions

This Department works with the Planning Commission, Zoning Hearing Board, Economic Development Committee, and Code Committee to ensure all appropriate agencies are working to guide the applicant(s) through the process of establishing themselves in Emmaus Borough. 


All businesses are required to follow regulations, which are government rules. These regulations may differ depending on the type of business that you intend to open. It is important that businesses understand and comply with regulations to protect their customers and their business investment.
