Fair Haven is a borough situated in the Jersey Shore region within Monmouth County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey, in the New York metropolitan area. Fair Haven is located on the Rumson peninsula along the Navesink River and is bordered by Red Bank and Little Silver to the west. As of the 2020 United States census, the borough's population was 6,269,[10][11] its highest decennial count ever and an increase of 148 (+2.4%) from the 2010 census count of 6,121,[20][21] which in turn reflected an increase of 184 (+3.1%) from the 5,937 counted in the 2000 census.[22]

Fair Haven was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 28, 1912, from portions of Shrewsbury Township, subject to the results of a referendum held on April 23, 1912. Portions of the borough were exchanged with Red Bank on June 17, 1957.[23][24]

The borough has been one of the state's highest-income communities.[25] In the 2013–2017 American Community Survey, Fair Haven had a median household income of $158,264 (ranked 23rd in the state) and included 36.6% of households earning more than $200,000 annually.[26]

In 2012, Forbes.com listed Fair Haven as 355th in its listing of "America's Most Expensive ZIP Codes", with a median home price of $804,446.[27] In 2018, New Jersey Business Magazine listed Fair Haven as 25th in its listing of "The Most Expensive ZIP Codes in New Jersey", with a median sale price 2017 of $745,000[28]

History[edit]

Fair Haven's first permanent settlement dates to a structure built in 1816 at the Navesink River near today's Fair Haven Road. By the mid-19th century, steamboats stopped at "Chandler's Dock" on a route between Red Bank and New York City, bringing visitors to the area and local oysters to the city.[24] Fisk Chapel was rebuilt in 1882 to accommodate the borough's African American population.[29]

The steamship "Albertina" is depicted on the Borough seal. It was built in 1882 by Lawrence & Foulks.

Fair Haven has an annual Fireman's Fair during the last weekend of summer including Labor Day weekend which attracts a couple of thousand people, including noted musicians Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. The Fair Haven Fireman's Fair also has a Fireman's night and invites all firefighters from any other firehouse to come and join in the festivities.[30] The Fireman's Fair used to raffle off a car each year, but most attendees already had their own cars and the decision was made in the 1990s to switch to a 50/50 raffle whose prize can be in the tens of thousands of dollars.[31] The fair is on the Fire Company grounds.

Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 2.11 square miles (5.47 km2), including 1.59 square miles (4.13 km2) of land and 0.52 square miles (1.34 km2) of water (24.55%).[1][2]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Fair Haven is governed under the borough form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 218 municipalities (of the 564) statewide, making it the most common form of government in New Jersey.[41] The governing body is comprised of the mayor and the borough council, 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 is comprised 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.[7] The borough form of government used by Fair Haven 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.[42][43]

As of 2023, the mayor of the Borough of Fair Haven is Republican Joshua Halpern, whose term of office ends on December 31, 2026.[3] Members of the Fair Haven Borough Council are Council President Elizabeth M. "Betsy" Koch (R, 2024), Tracey Cole (R, 2024), Kristen Hoey (R, 2025), Andrew "Drew" Labarbera (R, 2025), Laline Neff (D, 2023) and Christopher Rodriguez (D, 2023).[44][45][46][47][48]

In February 2017, the borough council selected Christopher Rodriguez from a list of three candidates nominated by the Democratic municipal committee to fill the seat expiring in December 2017 that had been held by Aimee Humphreys until she resigned from office as she was moving out of the borough; Rodriguez serve until the November 2017 general election, when he was elected to serve the two-month balance of the term and to fill a new three-year term.[49][50]

Benjamin Lucarelli was chosen as mayor in February 2012 to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Mike Halfacre, and who left office to take a position in the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control,[51][52] with Eric R. Jaeger in turn chosen in March 2012 to fill Lucarelli's vacancy on the borough council.[53]

Fair Haven was a participating municipality in an initiative to study regionalization of their municipal police force with one or more municipalities. The borough received a grant from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs in the amount of $40,950 along with the Boroughs of Rumson, Little Silver, Oceanport and Shrewsbury to hire professional consultants to conduct the study on their behalf. A report was prepared that proposed that on or about July 1, 2009, Fair Haven would close and move their Police, Fire and EMS dispatching over to Little Silver. After deadlines to begin this operation were missed, dispatching of police and emergency services would be handled by the Monmouth County Sheriff's office by October 1, 2009.[54] The proposal to consolidate services with Little Silver was presented to and rejected by the voters.[citation needed]

At an annual reorganization meeting held in the beginning of January, the board selects one of its members to serve as director and another as deputy director.[66] As of 2024, Monmouth County's Commissioners are:
