You can use the "include" statement:

        include /usr/local/monit.d/*

If you'll split the configuration for the deployed processes to one file per 
process, you'll be to add/remove these include files automatically. You can 
also add check for the "include" directory timestamp ... each time you 
add/remove file from the directory, its mtime is updated, which you can use to 
reload monit automatically:

        check directory monit_includes with path /usr/local/monit.d/
                if changed timestamp then exec "/sbin/restart monit"

Note that if you'll have syntax error in new include file, monit restart 
attempt will kill it, as it will hit the syntax error => in the above exec 
action it'll be safer to use some simple script which will restart monit 
conditionally - check the syntax first (using "monit -t") and restart only if 
there are no problems, otherwise keep running and/or fire alarm.
