Marlboro in Top 50 Safest Places to Live in Jersey

Selecting a community where you and your family will live is important to your overall well being and more important than the house itself.  Of course, the perfect house is important, but you are also buying into a community, a place where you will live, shop, go to school, and participate in community activities with your neighbors.

SafeWise paired data from the FBI’s Crime in the U.S. Report with their own comprehensive investigation and created a list of the top 50 safest communities in New Jersey, with 15,000 residents or more, as of 2011 . . . and Marlboro is on the list.

A few of the unique and special things about Marlboro are their Teen Advisory Committee and Economic Development Committee's Shop Marlboro program.

A forward-thinking and optimistic community, Marlboro focuses on developing the leaders of tomorrow by supporting its Teen Advisory Committee.  The committee is comprised of over 1,000 teen members that participate in a variety of community related activities.  They have a voice in local government issues allowing them to cultivate leadership skills and a strong sense of community.  You can also find them instructing seniors on the latest technology, or teaming up with an elderly resident to play a game of bowling on Wii.

To help small business owners succeed, Marlboro's Economic Development Committee Shop Marlboro program provides property tax incentives for Marlboro residents to spend their money with community merchants. This program has been successful in fostering growth for community merchants and a sense of community spirit.  This is a community that really believes in the Shop Local concept! 

Marlboro has many great neighborhoods with wide open spaces and large homes to accommodate growing families as well as adult communities loaded with amenities.  It really is a great place to live!
