​Message From the Township Committee:

At the last Township Committee meeting, the 2021 Budget was introduced. The Township is unable to control the spending in Trenton, we are unable to control the spending in Sussex County, but we were able to control the spending in Hampton Township. As a result, we as your Township Committee are proud to report that even with the state cutting funding to our schools, the 2021 Hampton Township Municipal portion of the budget reduces property taxes and at the same time,  increases the annual donation to Hampton Township Fire & Rescue by $25,000 for the safety & well-being of our residents!

Information on unsolicited seeds from China
We have been receiving reports of people receiving seeds in the mail from China that they did not order. Sometimes the seeds are sent in packages stating that the contents are jewelry. Unsolicited seeds could be invasive, introduce diseases to local plants, or be harmful to livestock.
Here's what to do if you receive unsolicited seeds from another country:
DO NOT plant them and if they are in sealed packaging don't open the sealed package.
Take a photo of the package and seeds and send the photos to the New Jersey Department of Agriculture to joseph.zoltowski@ag.nj.gov and USDA SITC at SITC.Mail@aphis.usda.gov
This is known as agricultural smuggling. Report it to the USDA! Maintain the seeds and packaging and send to the USDA Office located at 1500 Lower Rd, Linden NJ 07036 for evidence. 
If individuals are aware of the potential smuggling of prohibited exotic fruits, vegetables, or meat products into or through the USA, they can help APHIS by contacting the confidential Anti-smuggling Hotline number at 800-877-3835 or by sending an Email to SITC.Mail@aphis.usda.gov. The USDA will make every attempt to protect the confidentiality of any information sources during an investigation within the extent of the law.

  • Free Radon Test Kits are now available at the Hampton Township Municipal Office to residents. First come first serve for limited supply. Radon is a serious health risk. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer & the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. But because radon is invisible & odorless it is easy to ignore this potential hazard in our own homes. Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when uranium & radium break down in the soil & in rock formations. Radon gas moves up through the soil and finds its way into homes through cracks in the foundation & openings around pumps, pipes & drains. Radon is measured in picoCuries per liter of air. The average U.S. indoor level is 1.3 pCi/L. At 4 pCi/L, the risk of lung cancer from radon is greater than the risk from fire or other home accidents. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency & the DEP recommend that action be taken to reduce radon levels if the level in the home is greater than or equal to 4pCi/L. For more information on radon, please contact the DEP Radon Program at 800-648-0394 or visit www.njradon.org To view Hampton Township's Proclamation on Radon Action Month, please click here.

This is the first in a series featuring individuals making a difference in improving water quality in the Highlands and Ridge & Valley regions of New Jersey. Twelve environmental and conservation organizations are working together to protect the quality of drinking water in northwestern NJ, part of the 4-state Delaware River Watershed Initiative.

       In the early 1700’s the forest teemed with wildlife. Wolves, bear, deer, bobcat, turkeys, and rich variety of small game shared this bountiful land with the Leni Lenape Indians. Settlers had yet to discover the beauty and the serenity of what was to become modern day Hampton Township. 
       On March 10, 1864, the State Legislature officially established the Township of Hampton, New Jersey. The small villages of Baleville and Washingtonville were no longer under the wing of the Town of Newton but became the community centers of the newly established township. The gristmills, country stores, and schools had sprung up as the population had increased and bound the inhabitants together and helped them to endure and prosper in this remote corner of the state. 
       Now, at the turn of the millennium, the Indians and wolves are but a memory. However, the scenic charm that attracted those early settlers still work its magic today. Over the years farms have replaced forests, and dams fill valleys with lakes where streams once wound their way down to the Delaware. Three centuries of growth and change have transformed Hampton Township from a wilderness into a thriving community, with a modern commercial corridor surrounded by rural neighborhoods that remain a haven for residents and tourists alike.

The Hampton Township Committee recently adopted a resolution denouncing hate crimes.  Unfortunately, the Committee was made aware that another incident of hate has been perpetrated in our community.  The Hampton Township Committee stands firm in the belief that these types of incidents do not reflect the values of the citizens of Hampton Township, and strongly condemns these actions.  The Hampton Township Committee celebrates diversity in the community and promotes the coexistence of all of its residents, and believes that a harmonious community depends on the willingness of its residents to practice mutual respect, decency and restraint.  The Hampton Township Committee strives to ensure the safety of all of its residents against violence and aggression and denounces the hateful expression of religious or political intolerance against others.  The Committee is saddened to learn of these events and is hopeful that through cooperation of multiple agencies that resolve can be accomplished and for peace to follow.

Little Free Library!

Thank you to Retired Librarian Ms. Betsy Dewey, and her family, for generously donating and creating a "Little Free Library" in front of the Hampton Township Municipal Building. 

Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and improves book access by fostering neighborhood book-exchange boxes around the world. The small library boxes number more than 100,000 around the world in over 100 countries! Hampton resident Betsy Dewey purchased and painted the LFL box now located in front of the municipal building. She will be acting as its steward. She and her family initially stocked the library with a variety of books for all ages. You are encouraged to stop by and take whatever catches your eye, then bring books to contribute when you can. Betsy is responsible for the upkeep of the box and will be regularly adding to the collection. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach her by email at betsydewey@embarqmail.com
