Mayor’s Welcome & Updates

Mayor’s Welcome Message

A warm welcome to you on behalf of the Borough of Highlands. We have long been known as the place where the Jersey Shore begins. Our community greatly values its residents, businesses and visitors. Take some time to explore our historic sites, one-of-a-kind views and some of the most amazing restaurants in New Jersey.

We are a high-energy and highly engaged community. Highlands is a thriving residential, commercial and historic town that is always looking to grow. We offer safe recreational activities provided by our Recreation Department and year-round events sponsored by the business community through the Highlands Business Partnership [HBP]. The HBP also combines forces throughout the year with our Recreation Department to put on the best events in the Bayshore. We are well known for our first-class events, proximity to beaches, high speed ferry service to NYC, and of course our award-winning restaurants.

My administration and I are committed to serve you at the highest level possible. Highlands offers a walkable / bikeable community with many choices of paths on the Henry Hudson Trail as well as the many options in Hartshorne Woods. You will see in our community a growing, involved, population of staff, partners and resident volunteers eager to help and work together toward the common goal of Highlands success. Through a variety of committees, our residents, entrepreneurs, and staff are the lifeblood of our effort to help our citizens succeed in their home, on the job or in business.

Something Highlands Residents can look forward to in 2023 is the continued commitment to update our infrastructure and parks.  Fueled with over $800,000 in grants awarded last year, we will be adding an EV fast charging station to the municipal lot and finish the work started in 2022 in our parks. We look forward to opening the new Municipal Building, completing the large Sanitary project and opening the Borough’s first new park, Overlook, on Navesink Ave to name a few.

If you ever have any questions about Highlands or any projects that are planned or happening, just give me a call at 732-291-4009.

All the best to you and yours.
Mayor Carolyn Broullon
