Quality of Life
Monroe County may be known for its luxurious resorts and family-oriented attractions, but as a home to business, it’s equally impressive. We’re home to business ranging from sophisticated software companies and traditional manufacturers to one of the nation’s largest continuously-operated vaccine and pharmaceutical operations. When you locate your business in Monroe County, you’ll have an ideal group of world-class industries as corporate neighbors.
Because Monroe County is a four season vacation destination dotted with sparkling lakes, clean streams, and gentle mountains, our residents love living here. Because we’re just across the river from New Jersey along the breathtaking Delaware Water Gap, Monroe County and “the Stroudsburgs” are a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, vacationing families, and businesses that are looking for a retreat from both hectic lifestyles and high costs.
In recent years, volunteers from throughout the region have joined to develop a plan for Monroe County’s future, Monroe 2020. Monroe 2020’s goal is improving the quality of life in our area by implementing a plan that balances the need for jobs and economic development, improved local infrastructure, top-notch educational opportunities, and preservation of our natural environment.
