The Business, Industrial, and Professional Association of Palmer Township is a unique business organization
in that there is a very close working relationship between business and the government of the township.
The BIP was established in 1976 when representatives of the business community and members of the Board
of Supervisors worked together to form the organization. Since that time the BIP has grown considerably
and through its members has been involved in a number of community projects.
The alliance formed between the business community and the township is evident in the projects the BIP has initiated and helped bring to fruition. For example, the Association was instrumental in the construction of the Palmer Branch of the Easton Area Public Library and has collected and donated thousands of dollars in books and equipment to the Branch. BIP was also in the forefront of advocating the construction of the Palmer Branch of the United States Post Office at its Greenwood Avenue location. The Welcome to Palmer Township signs located at all entrances to the township and the landscaping at the entrances/exits to Route 22 have been funded by the BIP. Every two to three years each resident and business in the township receives the very informative Community Information Guide which is designed by the BIP.
The BIP is cooperating with the Easton Area Public Library to purchase books through wholesale channels to better stock Palmer Library. Therefore, only twenty dollars will purchase a brand new best-seller, gardening book, cookbook, how-to-book, children's book or dozens of other titles.

Since 2005 the BIP has given approximately $130,000 back to the township in community projects that it has funded. These include:
The picture show at the top of the page displays some of the projects that we have completed over the years.
From community projects to promoting community involvement to recognizing individuals, organizations and businesses that promote and beautify the township, the BIP is here to build a better Palmer Township for all of us.
