Marlboro County Acquires 56 Acres To Preserve As Open Space

Marlboro Township completed the purchase of Stattel Farm, at Rts. 520 and 79 in Marlboro, a project they have been working on for more than nine years. A total of 56 acres will be preserved as open space forever.

The acquisition of this land does not impact the budget or local taxes. The Township applied land preservation funding already authorized and in place, including the Township’s dedicated Open Space Trust Fund, NJ Green Acres Matching Grant and state Agricultural Development Committee funding in order to complete the acquisition.

Marlboro Township has logged several open space preservation successes with the Tennent Road (30 acres), Smith Farm (16 acres), Penksa Farm (21 acres) and Baydock Holdings (50 acres) projects.

The Township's continuing efforts to maintain open space is important for the quality of life in our community today, as well as preserving our community's lifestyle for future generations.

Selling Your Home? How a Sale Can Impact Your Taxes

Generally, any profits you earn are taxable. However, when you sell your home you may not have to pay taxes on the money you gain . . . it all depends on whether you fall within the qualifying guidelines. 

Here are 10 items to consider when selling your home:

1. You May Qualify for an Exclusion of Gain.  You may be able to exclude part or all of the gain from the sale of your home. This rule may apply if you meet the eligibility test. Parts of the test involve your ownership and use of the home. You must have owned and used it as your main/primary home for at least two out of the five years before the date of sale.

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.

Your first step should be to sit down and make a list of what features are in your perfect home and organize the items into 3 main categories:

Marlboro Schools Will Offer Full-Day Kindergarten!

Starting with the 2017-18 school year, the Marlboro School District will offer full-day kindergarten.

The Marlboro School Board approved a $1.94 million plan to renovate computer labs at four elementary schools and convert them into eight additional classrooms to accommodate the kindergarten students. The original plan to build 28 new kindergarten classrooms was rejected by voters, so the district found an alternative way to make it happen . . . to the delight of many local parents.

Superintendent Eric Hibbs said, "There will be more time spent on the individual needs of our students. The increased time will allow for a greater emphasis on social skills and a day filled with varied educational opportunities and experiences."
