History[edit]

Union Avenue, about 1910

The community of Lakehurst first reached international fame 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.[30]

Hindenburg[edit]

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.

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Lakehurst 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 Lakehurst, 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.[31][32]

As of 2014, the Mayor of Lakehurst Borough is Republican Harry Robbins, whose term of office ends December 31, 2015. Members of the Lakehurst Borough Council are Council President Steven Oglesby (R, 2016), Robin Busch (R, 2014), James W. Davis, Jr. (R, 2015), Gary Lowe (R, 2015), Glenn McComas (R, 2016) and Edward Seaman, Jr. (R, 2014).[4][33][34][35]

Federal, state and county representation[edit]

Lakehurst is located in the 4th Congressional District[36] and is part of New Jersey's 10th state legislative district.[9][37][38] Prior to the 2011 reapportionment following the 2010 Census, Lakehurst had been in the 9th state legislative district.[39]

New Jersey's Fourth Congressional District is represented by Christopher Smith (R).[40] New Jersey is represented in the United States Senate by Cory Booker (D, Newark; took office on October 31, 2013, after winning a special election to fill the seat of Frank Lautenberg)[41][42] and Bob Menendez (D, Paramus).[43][44]

For the 2014-15 Session, the 10th District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by James W. Holzapfel (R, Toms River Township) and in the General Assembly by Gregory P. McGuckin (R, Toms River Township) and David W. Wolfe (R, Brick Township).[45] The Governor of New Jersey is Chris Christie (R, Mendham Township).[46] The Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey is Kim Guadagno (R, Monmouth Beach).[47]

Ocean County is governed by a Board of Chosen Freeholders consisting of five members, 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.[48] At an annual reorganization held in the beginning of January, the board chooses a Director and a deputy Director from among its members. As of 2014, Ocean County's Freeholders (with department directorship, party affiliation, residence and term-end year listed in parentheses) are Freeholder Director Joseph H. Vicari (Public Works, Senior Services; R, Toms River, term ends December 31, 2014),[49] Freeholder Deputy Director John C. Bartlett, Jr. (Finance, Parks and Recreation; Pine Beach, 2015),[50] John P. Kelly (Law and Public Safety; Eagleswood Township, 2016),[51] James F. Lacey (Transportation; Brick Township, 2016)[52] and Gerry P. Little (Human Services; Surf City, 2015)[53][54][55] Constitutional officers elected on a countywide basis are County Clerk Scott M. Colabella (R, 2015, Barnegat Light),[56][57] Sheriff Michael Mastronardy (R, 2016; Toms River) and Surrogate Jeffrey Moran (R, 2018, Beachwood).[58][59][60]

Education[edit]

The Lakehurst School District serves students in public school for pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade at Lakehurst Elementary School. As of the 2011-12 school year, the district's one school had an enrollment of 420 students and 33.5 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 12.54:1.[66]

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.[67]

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.[68]

Transportation[edit]

Roads and highways[edit]

As of 2010, the borough had a total of 13.55 miles (21.81 km) of roadways, of which 7.72 miles (12.42 km) were maintained by the municipality, 3.95 miles (6.36 km) by Ocean County and 1.88 miles (3.03 km) by the New Jersey Department of Transportation.[69]

New Jersey Route 70 is the main highway through the borough, which lies at the western end of New Jersey Route 37. County Route 547 connects from the North after paralleling the eastern edge of Lakehurst Naval Air Station.

Public transportation[edit]

Lakehurst is located on the former Central Railroad of New Jersey Southern Division Main Line. The Barnegat Branch formerly extended from Lakehurst through Toms River and Beachwood down to Barnegat.

Lakehurst is being considered as the southern terminus of the planned New Jersey Transit Monmouth-Ocean-Middlesex Line, which would closely follow the CNJ line.[70]
