Weymouth Township
 
  Weymouth Township

Weymouth Township located in the southwest section of Atlantic County in the New Jersey Pinelands or Pine Barrens and contains the towns of Belcoville and Dorothy. It covers an area of 12.12 square miles, is bordered by the Great Egg Harbor River, South River, and Tuckahoe River, and is largely rural. The area was settled in the late 1600's when Weymouth Township once comprised the area of what is now Atlantic County.

Our name origin is Weymouth, England - An ancient seaport and modern terminal for ferries from the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. It is located at the mouth of the Wey River on Weymouth Bay. Weymouth is a popular beach resort of Georgian and Victorian houses. In olden days it was a naval port and the site of an important castle. King George III had a summer house there. In 1694 the Quaker fathers in Gloucester County named our township Weymouth because it was their township on the sea. They had no idea just how big a township they had created. Some of the Quakers may have left England from the port of Weymouth making it their last glimpse of the motherland.

Mayor's Blog

The county is finally paving Tuckahoe Rd. in Dorothy. We have been trying to attract good clean commercial ratables to Tuckahoe Rd. and Rt 50. Good roads and dependable high speed internet will help accomplish this.

They tell us the blinking light at Tuckahoe and 11th will be installed when some right of way issues are resolved with Conrail.

We received our first round of grant money to install the much needed sidewalk on the east side of Rt 50 in Belcoville.

We have also received a grant to pave 13th Ave. from Tuckahoe to the county line.

Working on the budget. Looks like we will be able to keep the municipal tax rate flat ( no increase ) this year.

Our Weymouth School is rapidly becoming the little gem it once was. Thank you Dr. Alfieri, the school board, teachers, and staff for all rowing in the same direction for the kids.

We still have a few openings on our various boards, If you are interested or have any questions, call me or DJ at the Township building.
