About the Civic Center

The 4,000 square-foot Civic Center was built by AvalonBay. The developer donated the space and associated building costs and extended a 99-year lease to the Borough. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on September 27 and the Borough Council first met in the new space on October 2, 2023.
