Berlin is a borough in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 7,588,[7][8][9] reflecting an increase of 1,439 (+23.4%) from the 6,149 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 477 (+8.4%) from the 5,672 counted in the 1990 Census.[18]

Berlin was incorporated as a borough on March 29, 1927, from portions of Berlin Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 26, 1927.[19]

Geography[edit]

Berlin borough is located at 39°47′31″N 74°56′13″W / 39.792059°N 74.936986°W / 39.792059; -74.936986 (39.792059,-74.936986). According to the United States Census Bureau, Berlin borough had a total area of 3.601 square miles (9.326 km2), of which, 3.588 square miles (9.293 km2) of it was land and 0.013 square miles (0.034 km2) of it (0.36%) was water.[1][2]

The borough borders Berlin Township, Lindenwold, Pine Hill, Waterford Township, Clementon, and Winslow Township.

The borough is one of 56 South Jersey municipalities that are included within the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve, a protected natural area of unique ecology covering 1,100,000 acres (450,000 ha), that has been classified as a United States Biosphere Reserve and established by Congress in 1978 as the nation's first National Reserve.[20] Part of the borough is included in the state-designated Pinelands Area, which includes portions of Camden County, along with areas in Atlantic, Burlington, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean counties.[21]

History[edit]

What is now Berlin was known in earlier times as "Longacoming." Local Native Americans used Lonaconing Trail to describe the travel route that ran through the area, connecting the Jersey Shore to the Delaware River. Another tradition cites early European visitors who found a stream at the head of the Great Egg Harbor River and appreciated the respite as being "long a coming".[22]

Long-A-Coming became a stopping point for stagecoaches located at the halfway point between Philadelphia and Atlantic City. A rail line was laid in 1853. Three years later, the Long-A-Coming railroad station was built. In February 1867, the station was renamed "Magnolia". This caused confusion because there was a community called Magnolia nearby. Three months later, the station's name changed to Berlin. The name "Berlin" may have been chosen as a reference to the city of Berlin in Germany,[23] though the derivation is uncertain.[22]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Berlin 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 Berlin, 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, which can be overridden with a 2/3 vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, with most appointments are made by the mayor subject to the advice and consent of the council.[30]

As of 2013, the Mayor of Berlin Borough is John J. Armano (R, term of office ends December 31, 2015).[31] Members of the Borough Council (with party affiliation, term-end year and departmental assignments listed in parentheses) are Council President James A. Bilella (R, 2015; Streets and Roads), Gary Knight (R, 2015; Building and Grounds), Lynn Kupchik (R, 2013; Water and Sewer), Nicholas Maccaroni (R, 2014; Finance), James Pearce (R, 2013; Health and Recreation) and Scott Scelso (R, 2014; Public Safety).[32][33][34][35][36][37]
