Welcome to the Town of Esopus Economic Development Committee web page. Formed in 2016, our all-volunteer committee is composed of local, resident business owners. We have been tasked with showcasing the economic potential and opportunities of the Town of Esopus for both new and established businesses, large and small. If you are considering making a move to Esopus, or opening a new business here, we want to make it as easy as possible for you by providing information that will make your journey smoother. If you have an existing business we are happy to offer assistance with keeping it successful and responding to your concerns.

On this page you will find links to available commercial property, financing incentives, loan fund sources, zoning regulations, and much more. We work hand in hand with the Ulster County Office of Economic Development who offers an amazing list of Business Resources for new and existing enterprises. Whether you decide to take advantage of the high-trafficked Rte. 9W corridor, or just want to open a Mom & Pop shop in a quiet town hamlet, you will be happy you chose Esopus.

We are pleased and proud to have the time honored Kingston Classic 10K Run visit the Town of Esopus on April 23rd. View the map and come out to cheer on the runners!

Please call us at 845-663-2006 or email if we can be of assistance.
