     It is my hope that our new and improved website will provide our residents and friends with a user friendly method of exploring all the resources available in the Borough of Harrington Park.

     Harrington Park is a predominately residential community located in the Northern Valley area of Bergen County. We are within half hours’ drive of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges. In addition, bus service to New York City is conveniently located near our Police Headquarters. We are extremely proud of educational services provided to our residents. Both the Harrington Park Elementary School and the Northern Valley Regional High School are recognized as outstanding in their service to our youth.

     The Borough is approximately 1.8 square miles in size, with a population just under 4800 residents. Large portions of our town are protected open space areas in addition to many parks and recreational facilities. Over 92% of our homes are owner occupied. The average value of a single family residence is just over $600,000.

     I trust our site will provide you with the information you need and improve your knowledge as to why we are one of the most sought after communities in Bergen County.

     You will find that all of our elected officials, department heads, Borough employees, board and commission members and residents are committed to helping you in a timely and professional manner.

     Harrington Park has numerous clubs and organizations that invite your involvement and participation. If you have the time, or interest in volunteering for one of our boards or commission, please contact me.

     Finally, if you have any constructive recommendations that will improve the value of our website, you can reach me either at Borough Hall (201-768-1700) or at my home (201-767-7985).

     I thank you for your interest and visit to our website. Hopefully, we have addressed and satisfied your needs regarding information pertinent to our beautiful community-Harrington Park.

Respectfully yours,

Mayor Paul A. Hoelscher
