Mayor's Welcome

Welcome to Woodbridge Township ...
The Crossroads of New Jersey

Woodbridge Township has welcomed residents and business since 1669 when the Township was chartered as the first incorporated municipality in the Province of East Jersey. Today, Woodbridge Township is comprised of 10 towns located over 26 square miles, yet has the feel of small-town America. Woodbridge offers quiet, tree-lined neighborhoods, local schools within a short walk, and a responsive government focused on the needs of those who choose to live, work, educate their children and recreate in our community.

As Mayor of Woodbridge Township, I am continually seeking opportunities and innovative initiatives whereby Woodbridge corporate headquarters and offices, industry and business, retail and shopping centers, residents and visitors, can together contribute to the betterment of our community in support of the unparalleled first-class business environment that thrives throughout our community.

Over the past several years, we have successfully engaged economic development that has been the engine that has allowed us to drive a historic $21 million investment in our schools. As a result of these investments, the Township will generate nearly $8 million annually from the development projects – projects that were provided tax incentives by the Township to encourage investment in Woodbridge. By offering tax incentives, we ensured that these companies would invest in Woodbridge – bringing several thousand jobs to our citizens with the added benefit of tax-free financing to expand and renovate school district and community infrastructure.

Additionally, Woodbridge Township businesses and/or property owners located within a designated commercial business Redevelopment/Rehabilitation Zone, may be eligible for Township-sponsored grants and low-interest loans to improve and restore exterior facades and buildings. We have signed-on to state-sponsored programs such as the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency ‘Live Where You Work’ program and the “InvestNJ” business grant program – all as part of our efforts to stimulate the business economy and help Township businesses and residents weather today’s economic challenges.

In concert with our Municipal Council, the Greater Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce, and the Woodbridge Economic Development Corporation (WEDCO), we welcome you to learn more about our great Township and the many commercial opportunities that exist throughout our “10 Towns.” To learn more about the great business and residential opportunities in Woodbridge Township, visit the Township Web Page at: www.twp.woodbridge.nj.us or call my office at (732) 602-6015.

Mayor John E. McCormac
