Weymouth Township
  Weymouth Township

Weymouth Township located in the southwest section of Atlantic County in the New Jersey Pinelands or Pine Barrens and contains the towns of Belcoville and Dorothy. It covers an area of 12.12 square miles, is bordered by the Great Egg Harbor River, South River, and Tuckahoe River, and is largely rural. The area was settled in the late 1600's when Weymouth Township once comprised the area of what is now Atlantic County.

Our name origin is Weymouth, England - An ancient seaport and modern terminal for ferries from the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. It is located at the mouth of the Wey River on Weymouth Bay. Weymouth is a popular beach resort of Georgian and Victorian houses. In olden days it was a naval port and the site of an important castle. King George III had a summer house there. In 1694 the Quaker fathers in Gloucester County named our township Weymouth because it was their township on the sea. They had no idea just how big a township they had created. Some of the Quakers may have left England from the port of Weymouth making it their last glimpse of the motherland.

As the weather gets cooler and the year winds down, these final months seem to fly with the hustle and bustle of work, school, sports and activities, spending more time with families enjoying the outdoors before the winter cold is upon us once again. The holiday season is approaching and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I think it is a good time to pause and reflect on the past year and what we are thankful for.  Of course, at the top of my list is my family (Have I mentioned that I am a Great-Grandfather?), my health, my friends and neighbors.

I am very fortunate to live in a community with such a positive small town feel. We have countless volunteers throughout our community that make this community such a great one, from our Dorothy Volunteer Fire Company, to all of our Weymouth Township Boards and Committees, I would like to thank you all for giving of your time and commitment to a job well done. 

This has been a very productive year. Unfortunately, at times, in government it can take a long time to set plans in motion. Over the past year to year and a half we have seen that all of our planning has finally come to fruition. Fios has been installed in many homes throughout Weymouth Township, our 10th and 11th Avenues railroad crossings have been upgraded, a new stop sign has been placed at the corner of 11th and South Jersey Avenue (as the first phase of safety upgrades to the 11th and Tuckahoe Road intersection), improvements have been made to portions of 11th, 12th, 15th Avenues, as well as Tuckahoe Road (County). Improvements to Township Hall parking lots, 13th Avenue and a sidewalk for Route 50 are currently all in working stages.

Our annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be taking place on Tuesday, December 4th at 6 pm. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to spread some Christmas cheer. Come celebrate the season with us as the Weymouth Township School Choir and DJ Cory D’Amore entertain us with some festive sounds of the season. Milk and cookies will be served.

I look forward to celebrating with all of you.  Until then, on behalf of the Township Committee and myself, I wish you all good health, happiness and all the blessings of the season.
