Englewood Cliffs is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 5,281,[7][8][9] reflecting a decline of 41 (-0.8%) from the 5,322 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 312 (-5.5%) from the 5,634 counted in the 1990 Census.[18]

The borough houses the world headquarters of CNBC (NBCUniversal), the North American headquarters of South Korean conglomerate LG Corp,[19] and the American headquarters of global CPG conglomerate Unilever, and is home to both Ferrari and Maserati North America.[20][21]

The borough's formation dates back to an election for Road Commissioner in Road District 1 between William Outis Allison and Clinton Blake, a future mayor of Englewood. Blake won the vote, but Allison challenged the result, arguing that women had been improperly allowed to vote. The vote was overturned, but Englewood officials would not seat Allison, which ultimately led to his successful efforts in 1895 to have Road District 1 secede to form the Borough of Englewood Cliffs, with Allison serving as the new municipality's first mayor.[22]

Englewood Cliffs was formed as a borough on May 10, 1895, from portions of the now defunct townships of Englewood Township and Palisades Township, based on the results of a referendum held the previous day.[23][24] The borough was formed during the "Boroughitis" phenomenon then sweeping through Bergen County, as of one two boroughs created in 1895 after 26 boroughs had been formed in the county in 1894 alone.[25]

Economy[edit]

Unilever building

CNBC,[45] LG North American headquarters,[19][46] and Unilever North America are headquartered in Englewood Cliffs.[47]

LG Electronics held a groundbreaking ceremony on November 14, 2013 to build an environmentally friendly North American headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, having received a favorable legal decision subsequently being appealed based upon building height issues. Protesters have sharply criticized the proposal, arguing that the 143-foot (44 m) height of the building exceeds the borough's 35-foot (11 m) limit and that the height of the building above the tree line will disrupt views of the Palisades.[48]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Englewood Cliffs 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][49] The Borough form of government used by Englewood Cliffs, 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.[50][51]

As of 2015, the Mayor is Democrat Joseph Parisi, Jr., whose term of office ends December 31, 2015.[52] Parisi succeeded his father, Joseph Parisi Sr., who was mayor for 29 years, and was halfway through a four-year term when he died at age 79 on November 15, 2005.[53] Members of the Englewood Cliffs Borough Council are (with party affiliation, term-end year and committee assignments listed in parentheses) are Council President Joseph Favaro (D, 2015; Fire, EMS and Historical), Edward Aversa (D, 2014; Police, Community Events, Recreation), Nunzio Consalvo (2016; Transportation, Clean Communities, Legislative Liaison), Ramon Ferro (R, 2015; Lighting and Sanitation), Zhi Liang (2016; Beautification, Historical, Economic Development, Council Representative to the Board of Health) and Gloria Oh (D, 2014; Economic Development, Finance, Legal).[54][55][56][57][58][59][60][61][62][63]

Nora Jobson, who had lost a council seat in November 2011 by 36 votes, was chosen in March 2013 to fill the vacant seat of Ilan Plawker, who had resigned the previous month after serving 18 years on the borough council due to health issues and conflicts with other responsibilities.[64]

  • Joseph Parisi, Jr. - 2008 to present.[52]
  • Joseph Parisi, Sr. - 1976 to 2005.[52]
  • Thomas E. Stagnitti (1923–2006) - 1964 to 1976.[65]
  • William Outis Allison (1849–1924) 1895 to 1911 (?). He was the first Mayor of Englewood Cliffs, and served four terms in office.[66]

ECVAC maintained three vehicles, two Ford Type-III ambulances and a Chevy Tahoe SUV and responded to an average of over 300 medical emergencies each year. The ECVAC was disbanded in August 2012 by the Mayor and Council of Englewood Cliffs, citing delays in providing prompt emergency response to borough residents due to the lack of volunteers.[103]

The district offers programs on a shared-time or full-time basis, with admission based on a selective application process and tuition covered by the student's home school district.[110][111]

Since 1975, Englewood Cliffs has been home to a campus of Saint Peter's University, where evening and weekend classes are offered for Associate's degrees, Bachelor's degrees, and graduate degrees. The college's nursing program for registered nurses is also located at the campus. Previously, the campus had been home to Englewood Cliffs College, which closed in 1974.[112]
