Planning for Growth; Maintaining Quality of Life

Deerfield Township has experienced slow but steady growth over the past several years, allowing the Township to maintain its rural, farm-centered character and abundant open spaces. The Township Committee and Land Use Board, as well as many residents and business leaders believe that the Township is on the brink of significant growth. They are working hard to see to it that the future development of the Township is well-planned in order to protect the quality of life enjoyed by its residents and businesses today.

 

Two important factors support the prediction of future growth. First, the local, family-owned and operated farms that were the foundation of the economy of the Township throughout the years and contributed to its open space and rural life style declined in number, acreage and productivity over the past decade. The second factor that supports growth is the township's central location between Cumberland County's three largest cities and available developable, open land with easy access to the Sherman Avenue and the Landis Avenue exits of Route 55.
