About the Roxbury
Welcome to Roxbury! The Township of Roxbury is made up of six communities including Kenvil, Landing, Ledgewood, Berkshire Valley, Port Morris and Succasunna. It covers an area of approximately 22 square miles with a population of 23,227 according to the 2000 Census. It is located at the crossroads of Routes 46, 10 and 80, just 50 miles west of New York City. It is a residential community offering a wide variety of amenities.

Within our boundaries is the Horseshoe Lake Recreational Area that includes a swimming area, picnic areas and pavilion, band shell, playground, sports fields for soccer and baseball, basketball and volleyball courts, walking path and soon to be added bikeway and mini railroad operated by the Roxbury Railroaders Club. That is just the list of outside activities! The adjoining building houses the very active Senior and Teen Centers.

Open Space Preservation

The preservation of open space has contributed in large part to the pastoral appearance of our Township. More than 25% of our community is designated public and quasi-public use, with an additional 21% farm and vacant land. We boast 13 parks that are beautifully maintained by our Parks and Recreation Department.

Business Development

Yet due to the excellent transportation system, Roxbury is host to a thriving business community. Restaurants and businesses flourish at our crossroads. The Township is a hub of activity because of our convenient location.

Organization & Goals
The Township operates under the manager--council form of government. The manager is responsible for the day-to-day operations associated with all municipal activities. The Manager directs, administers and coordinates the activities of the municipality in full support of policies, goals and objectives established by the governing body.

The overriding goal of our manager is to ensure you, our customers, receive the most efficient and cost effective service. Lastly, we would like to invite all residents to get involved in our community.
