Welcome to the July edition of the Bordentown Township Banner!
Our goal is to keep residents, friends and neighbors informed

Update on Township Events

  • The July 4 Fireworks have been postponed. The fireworks will be held on Labor Day Weekend on Saturday, September 5.
  • The Fishing Derby on July 4 has been cancelled.
  • Music in the Park, for the 2020 year, has been cancelled.

Announcement from

2020 Census Information

The Census allows a fair distribution of Federal funds and Federal representation. The Census is the duty of everyone living in the United States. Those funds affect our schools and infrastructure.

Commercial Tenancy Changes

In order to better assure public safety, commercial property owners are now required to notify the Township and seek approval for tenancy changes. Prior to the sale or change of occupancy, the Township Zoning Officer must make a determination that the proposed use is a permitted use. If the use is permissible, the Construction Official must then approve the tenant change. Click here for more information and the application.

Bordentown Township hosted a Red Cross Blood Drive on June 22 located at our Senior Community Center in the township. We had 48 possible donors signed-up for the drive. We had 36 donors present that potentially can save 99 lives with multiple blood counts.

We were pleased that during this very difficult time with COVID-19 we are able to participate by having such a lifesaving drive for the betterment of our community and other communities.
