Welcome to Delran Township

Incorporated in 1880, with a population of 16,896 people according to the 2010 census, Delran Township is comprised of 7.2 square miles located at the intersection of the Delaware River and the Rancocas Creek in Burlington County, New Jersey. 

Delran is comprised of community minded residents with many business, sporting and recreational opportunities, including water sports, due to its location, and both active and passive recreational opportunities with our over 450 acres of preserved open space. 

We believe this new website exemplifies our community as we hope to make it easy to navigate and welcoming of any suggestions or recommendations that you may have to improve our town or this website.

From the Mayor's Desk

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope everyone is enjoying the spring season and looking forward to warm weather. 

As we started 2018, one of our first priorities was to review the 2018 Municipal Budget.  Recently the 2018 budget has been adopted. The Department Heads continued to work hard to keep their budgets in line and control spending.  Working along with the Township Administrator, we have been able to keep the tax impact to a minimum with a .01 increase in the tax rate.  Over the last eight years we have maintained a stable budget and our goal will be to continue to keep the budget in line to minimize the tax impact for the residents.

The Delran Township Police Department will continue their Project Medicine Drop Box which is a 24 hour anonymous drop off for unused medications.  Prescription and over-the-counter medications can be brought to the Delran Police Department and discarded in a safe manner.   Please remember to scratch out identifying information on any medicine container you are discarding.

We will be continuing our aggressive road program for 2018.  We anticipate the resurfacing of Antietam Road, Windmoor Road, Litle Avenue and Lichtenthal Street.   Paving on Hartford Road, from Bridgeboro Road to the Morrestown border will be complete this year as well.   This project has been in the works for several years and has been partially funded through a NJ Department of Transportation grant   

Other capital projects to be completed in 2018 include additional lighting at Delran Community Park, replacement of playground equipment at Conrow Park and final painting improvements on the basketball courts at Ohio State and Brown Street Park.  We will continue to pursue available state and county grants for recreational and infrastructure improvements.   

On behalf of the Delran Township Recreational Advisory Committee, I am pleased to announce that “Delran Day” will be revamped in “Delran Night Out” for 2018.  The RAC is currently in the early stages of planning this which will take place on August 7th.  If anyone would like to volunteer for this event, they can contact the Township Clerk’s Office. 

Finally, on June 2, 2018, we will be holding a ceremonial ground breaking for Jake’s Place at Delran Community Park.  Additional details on the event will be posted on the Township website and Facebook Page. 

I would like to wish everyone a safe and fun summer season and look forward to another successful year for Delran Township.
