Lakehurst was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 7, 1921, from portions of Manchester Township, based on the results of a referendum held on May 24, 1921.[21] The borough is named for its location near lakes and woods.[22]

History edit

 
Union Avenue, about 1910

The community of Lakehurst first reached international recognition as a winter resort around the turn of the 20th century, following the opening of the Pine Tree Inn in 1898. In 1911, the rope factory in the town burned down, prompting the formation of a volunteer fire department.[23]

The Hindenburg disaster, occurred on May 6, 1937; the German zeppelin Hindenburg arriving from Frankfurt am Main caught fire at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station, which is located in Manchester Township (not in the borough of Lakehurst).

Geography edit

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 0.99 square miles (2.56 km2), including 0.90 square miles (2.32 km2) of land and 0.09 square miles (0.24 km2) of water (9.39%).[1][2]

The borough's lake, Lake Horicon, existed prior to 1942, as clearly shown in aerial photographs from 1940 and 1931 and topographical maps from 1912. The cedar water lake remains stream-fed.[24]

Lakehurst is completely surrounded by Manchester Township,[25][26] making it part of 21 pairs of "doughnut towns" in the state, where one municipality entirely surrounds another.[27]

The borough is one of 11 municipalities in Ocean County that are part of the Toms River watershed.[28]

Climate edit

The climate in this area is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Lakehurst has a humid subtropical climate, abbreviated "Cfa" on climate maps.[29]

Government edit

Local government edit

Lakehurst is governed under the borough form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 218 municipalities (of the 564) statewide, making it the most common form of government in New Jersey.[38] The governing body is comprised of the mayor and the borough council, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. The mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The borough council is comprised of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[6] The borough form of government used by Lakehurst is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[39][40]

As of 2022, the mayor of Lakehurst Borough is Republican Harry Robbins, whose term of office ends December 31, 2023.[41] Members of the Lakehurst Borough Council are Council President Steven Oglesby (R, 2022), James W. Davis Jr. (R, 2024), Bernadette Dugan (R, 2024; appointed to serve an unexpired term), Brian C. DiMeo (R, 2022), Patricia A. Hodges (R, 2023), Robert McCarthy (R, 2023).[3][42][43][44][45][46][47]

In March 2022, the borough council appointed Bernadette Dugan to the seat expiring in December 2024 that had been held by Gary Lowe until he died in office the previous January, just weeks after having taken office. Dugan will serve on an interim basis until the November 2022 general election, when voters will choose a candidate to fill the balance of the term of office.[48]

In August 2015, the borough council selected former mayor Stephen F. Childers to fill the unexpired term ending in December 2016 of Glenn McComas, who had resigned from office the previous month as he was moving out of the borough.[49]

Federal, state and county representation edit

Lakehurst is located in the 4th Congressional District[50] and is part of New Jersey's 9th state legislative district.[51]

For the 118th United States Congress, New Jersey's 4th congressional district is represented by Chris Smith (R, Manchester Township).[52][53] New Jersey is represented in the United States Senate by Democrats Cory Booker (Newark, term ends 2027)[54] and Bob Menendez (Englewood Cliffs, term ends 2025).[55][56]

Ocean County is governed by a Board of County Commissioners comprised of five members who are elected on an at-large basis in partisan elections and serving staggered three-year terms of office, with either one or two seats coming up for election each year as part of the November general election. At an annual reorganization held in the beginning of January, the board chooses a director and a deputy director from among its members.[58] As of 2024, Ocean County's Commissioners (with party affiliation, term-end year and residence) are:

Education edit

The Lakehurst School District serves students in public school for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade at Lakehurst Elementary School.[82] As of the 2018–19 school year, the district, comprised of one school, had an enrollment of 374 students and 35.1 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 10.7:1.[83]

Public school students from Lakehurst in ninth through twelfth grades attend Manchester Township High School in Manchester Township, as part of a sending/receiving relationship with the Manchester Township School District.[84][85] As of the 2018–19 school year, the high school had an enrollment of 1,006 students and 82.8 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.1:1.[86]

The Lakehurst district decided in 2012 against a proposal that would have had borough students attend Jackson Liberty High School as part of a sending / receiving relationship with the Jackson School District. The change in the sending relationship had been considered as a means of reducing the costs associated with paying $14,000 for each of the 150 students attending Manchester High School, as opposed to the $11,300 that would have been paid at Jackson, yielding annual savings of $400,000, less the added cost of transporting students to and from Jackson.[87]
