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.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

There are exciting things happening throughout the Township.  We are finishing up the reconstruction of Brown Street, the repaving of Lowden Street and are beginning the sidewalk improvement project on Fairview Street.  As we make these continued improvements, we ask for the understanding of the residents in the area that may be affected. 

I am happy to report that the Local Purpose Tax Rate will remain the same as last year at .756 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation.  The 2014 Municipal Budget is $60,457 less than the 2013 budget.  Please be advised that the Local Purpose Tax represents approximately 21% of your total property tax bill and is the only portion under the control of the Mayor and Township Council.  I would like to thank all the Department Heads and staff for their continued hard work and support in maintaining the departmental budgets. I would also like to thank the residents for their continued support.  Our goal is to continue to make the necessary improvements throughout the Township, as well as to keep the local purpose tax stable.
