Bay Head is a borough in Ocean County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 968,[8][9][10] reflecting a decline of 270 (-21.8%) from the 1,238 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 12 (+1.0%) from the 1,226 counted in the 1990 Census.[19] Bay Head is situated on the Barnegat Peninsula, also known as Barnegat Bay Island, a long, narrow barrier island that separates Barnegat Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Together with Mantoloking and Point Pleasant, Bay Head is considered part of the Jersey Shore's "Gold Coast".[20]

Bay Head was incorporated as a Borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on June 15, 1886, from portions of Brick Township, based on the results of a referendum held three days earlier.[21]

The community was supposed to have been named "Bayhead" after the Bayhead Land Company that developed the area in the 1870s.[22] A railroad sign posted in the 1880s labeled the station as "Bay Head," and the name stuck when the borough was incorporated in 1886. The name also comes from the town's location, which is at the "head" of Barnegat Bay.[23]

Geography[edit]

Bay Head is located at 40°04′13″N 74°02′53″W / 40.070315°N 74.048162°W / 40.070315; -74.048162 (40.070315,-74.048162). According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 0.700 square miles (1.814 km2), of which, 0.582 square miles (1.508 km2) of it was land and 0.118 square miles (0.306 km2) of it (16.88%) was water.[1][2]

History[edit]

The Bay Head Land Company was incorporated on September 6, 1879, capitalized at $12,000. The founding partners were David H. Mount of Rocky Hill, and three Princeton men: Edward Howe, his brother Leavitt Howe and William Harris. Within several years, the resort had grown in population, with a seawall installed, roads built and graded. In 1882, Bay Head had 20 new cottages and a population of 75.

The first post office was established in Bay Head in the summer of 1882. Julius Foster was first postmaster.[24]

The Bay Head Historic District, listed in the New Jersey and the National Registers of Historic places in 2005, includes over 550 contributing structures (over half of the town's buildings) making it one of the largest historic districts in New Jersey.[25] Bay Head's historic district is architecturally significant for its large collection of well-preserved Shingle Style, Stick Style, and Queen Anne Style structures.

The 1,260 metres (4,130 ft) stone rubble seawall built in 1882, which had been buried by dunes and largely forgotten, played a role in reducing damage to the town by Hurricane Sandy.[26][27]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Bay Head is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The governing body consists of a Mayor and a Borough Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council consists 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.[5] The Borough form of government used by Bay Head, the most common system used in the state, 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.[36][37]

As of 2014, the Mayor of the Borough of Bay Head is William W. Curtis (R, term ends December 31, 2015).[38] Members of the Bay Head Borough Council (with party, term-end year and committee chairmanships listed in parentheses) are Council President D'Arcy Rohan Green (R, 2015; Parks, Grounds and Recreation), Jennifer Barnes-Gambert (R, 2014; Legal and Planning), Mary Stockton Glass (R, 2015; Public Safety), Robert F. Hein (R, 2016; Public Service), Douglas J. Lyons (R, 2016; Finance) and Brian M. Magory (R, 2014; Public Works).[39][40][41]

As of 2014, the Borough Administrator is Brian J. Valentino, who holds office indefinitely at the discretion of the governing body.[citation needed]
