Buena (pronounced /bjuːnə/ BEW-nə[20][21][22]) is a borough in Atlantic County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 4,603,[7][8][9] reflecting an increase of 730 (+18.8%) from the 3,873 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 568 (-12.8%) from the 4,441 counted in the 1990 Census.[23]

Landisville and Minotola are unincorporated areas located within Buena Borough, each of which had postal facilities established with those names in 1871 and 1897, respectively.[24]

History[edit]

Charles K. Landis was a land developer who was the driving force behind the creation of Hammonton and Vineland. Landis also had a hand in establishing other small towns, including Landisville, in Buena Borough. He planned to make it county seat of a new county called Landis County, which would incorporate land from the surrounding counties. However, the locals were against this, and began calling him "King Landis".[25]

Buena was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on September 1, 1948, from portions of Buena Vista Township. The borough was reincorporated on May 18, 1949.[26]

In 1979, local resident Madeline Barrale authored a 115-page book illustrating the Borough's history. Buena Borough celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 1999 with the 1st Annual "Buena Day" at Bruno Melini Park. In 2002, the St. Padre Pio Shrine was erected by Italian-American farmers in the Landisville section of Buena and has attracted what was described by The New York Times as a "steady stream of Catholics" who come to pray at the site.[27]

Geography[edit]

Buena borough is located at 39°31′45″N 74°56′43″W / 39.52917°N 74.945205°W / 39.52917; -74.945205 (39.52917,-74.945205). According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 7.579 square miles (19.630 km2), of which 7.578 square miles (19.626 km2) was land and 0.001 square mile (0.003 km2) (0.02%) was water.[1][2]

Unexpected Road was named the seventh wackiest street name according to a 2006 poll by Car Connection website.[28]

The borough borders Vineland, and the townships of Franklin and Buena Vista.

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.[29] Part of the borough is included in the state-designated Pinelands Area, which includes portions of Atlantic County, along with areas in Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean counties.[30]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Buena Borough 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 Buena, 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.[38][39]

As of 2014, the Mayor of Buena Borough is Republican Joseph Baruffi, whose term of office ends December 31, 2015. Members of the Buena Borough Council (with party affiliation, term-end year and committee assignments listed in parentheses) are Council President Rosalie M. Baker (R, 2015; Finance), Edward Cugini (R, 2016; Public Safety / Street Lights), Robert L. James (R, 2014 - serving an unexpired term; Streets and Roads), Jeffrey Marolda (R, 2016; Recycling), Gregory McAvaddy (R, 2014; Buildings / Grounds/ Improvements) and David Zappariello (R, 2015; Recreation).[40][41][42][43][44]

After Council President Joseph Santagata resigned from office in July 2014, the Borough Council selected Robert L. James to fill Santagata's vacant council seat, while Rosalie M. Baker was chosen to succeed Santagata as Council President.[45]

Gregory McAvaddy was sworn into office in August 2013 to fill the vacant seat of Frank DeStefano, who had resigned earlier that month to devote more time to his business.[46] In the 2013 general election, Republican incumbents Edward S. Cugini and Jeffrey Marolda won re-election and McAvaddy won the balance of the unexpired term of office.[47]

The Chief of Police in Buena Borough is David Sherma, who was sworn into the Chief position in 2010 on an acting basis and took over the post officially at the start of 2011.[48][49]
