Galloway Township has experienced a tremendous amount of growth due primarily to the casino industry and the pending "second wave" of casino development that will generate an estimated 31,800 new jobs. Galloway Township stands poised to manage the impacts this development will have on the region and specifically the Township.

The Township is cognizant of the economic impact on the community expected from the continued expansion of the casino economy and will attempt wherever possible to create the balanced growth that is necessary for the fiscal health of the community.

Galloway Township is the home of several of the region's major employers and attractions including the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, the Edwin B.
