Mayor's Message

Your Rockaway Township leadership team continues its work in delivering the facilities and services that you have all been asking for. On a daily basis, our incredible employees facilitate and work on many projects to support the Township and its residents, but I would like to highlight a few projects planned for the remainder of this year. 

  • Peterson Field improvements will continue throughout the spring and summer. 
  • Our Senior Center will undergo lower-level renovations, making the space usable and ADA compliant. This project is funded largely by a $60,000 Morris County Community Development Block Grant. 
  • We will continue upgrades to our water system, including an overhaul of the distribution command center and rehabilitation to several of the township's water tanks.
  • The Kings Road resurfacing project, which includes paving, curbing and the installation of ramps, will be finalized. 
  • The Parks Lake Memorial area revitalization goes out to bid in 2022. The project includes landscaping and hardscape improvements to the memorial area.

I'm looking forward to working with my team to keep Rockaway a great place to live, work and play!
