State and Local Economic Development Organizations

Economic development is a collaborative effort requiring coordination among many organizations to leverage resources and expertise for the benefit of the community. PAID works very closely with a number of other economic development service providers including:


Anchor Institutions

Pottstown is home to several prominent institutions recognized for innovation and excellence:  Montgomery County Community College, Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, and The Hill School. These “anchor institutions” are among the largest employers in the Borough of Pottstown and continue to grow. The numbers speak for themselves.

  • Montgomery County Community College’s West Campus has grown 60% over the last 5 years to approximately 3,000 credit students.
  • The Hill School, a private preparatory high school on a 200 acre campus, currently enrolls students from 27 states and 18 countries.
  • Pottstown Memorial Medical Center’s staff features more than 260 physicians and 40 medical specialties.

PAID, our economic development partners, and the institutions that anchor our community are working together to promote economic development and attract additional investment to Pottstown.

PAID is developing, coordinating and implementing an economic development strategy that will stimulate investment and sustainable growth.
