The Corporate Park property at GSP Exit 109 has been designated by Middletown Township as "An Area in Need of Redevelopment" by Middletown. This 35-acre parcel is surrounded by the Swimming River, a preserved, environmentally sensitive wetlands area which is a habitat for numerous birds, fish, reptiles and mammals, and endangered birds such as the bald eagle. Middletown has amended its Master Plan's Housing Plan to incorporate the property. Additionally, AvalonBay Communities Inc., a publicly traded real estate investment company that invests in apartments, has applied to the NJDEP for a waiver which would allow them to alter the wetland transition zone of the Swimming River. Avalon Bay Communities Inc. seeks to build hundreds of residential units at the site. The waiver application is being reviewed by the NJDEP, and neighbors are asking the public to read and sign the Change.org petition and write a letter to the NJDEP to prevent this waiver approval.

PLEASE CLICK ON THE TAKE ACTION LINE ABOVE to view the petition.

The Lincroft Village Green Association is watching this potential project closely and communicating with residents and environmentalists from Lincroft, Tinton Falls and beyond as we unify to protect the destruction of the Swimming River. Investigation must be done to stop any redevelopment which will negatively affect our environment and the safety of our drinking water which originates from the Swimming River Reservoir.

Please join our volunteer organization to stay informed on this and other important issues as we advocate to protect our land from detrimental development.

Capital Campaign

In 2018, we launched a Capital Campaign “For the Greener Good” to upgrade the landscape and lawn at the Lincroft Village Green.

Rehabilitating such a large area is not a walk in the park. So far, we have raised just over $15,000 of our $20,000 goal.   Any donation, great or small, is appreciated.   Through donations made by our loyal members, we are making the Lincroft Green a little greener every year. 

Our efforts to make capital improvements actually began in the fall of 2017, when the LVGA Board of Directors decided to kick off the project using existing funds to have a well and sprinkler system installed. Working with the township, PickWick Well Drilling, and Garden Irrigation, we were able to acquire what  every beautiful lawn and garden needs: WATER! 

With our initial fundraising efforts and donations made by our members, we have installed a well, water softening system, sprinkler system, rehabilitated the lawn in the center circle, hired tree services, and planted new shrubs.  In the spring of 2019, we expanded the sprinkler system and planted several perennial shrubs and flowers.  We also were thrilled to plant two beautiful Northern Red Oaks which were donated to the park in 2021 by the Molzon Family.  Community volunteers, Cub Scout Troop 210, Boy Scout Troops 110 and 246, and dedicated LVGA directors have spent countless hours doing trash sweeps, weeding, mulching, and planting.  It's truly been a community effort!

Although the Lincroft Village Green is a public park owned by Middletown Township, the LVGA has been the steward of its enhancement and use.  The Lincroft Green is an integral part of what the LVGA as a civic organization stands for: working together to save open space, improving quality of life for residents, and providing a safe and beautiful place for all to gather.  Make your donation today...we have almost met our goal!

Our CAPITAL CAMPAIGN goal is $20,000.00.
