All vehicles must be moved off of the street to allow our Public Works employee's to better plow our streets and make them safe for you and your family. This in in acordance with 159-24 of the Woolwich Township Code. Violators may be issued a warning or violation notice from the Woolwich Township Police Department. Please be safe and courteous.
Please note that all sidewalks must be cleared after the snow has stopped. When removing snow from sidewalks, driveways etc, PLEASE DO NOT DEPOSIT IT BACK ONTO THE ROADS AS THIS WILL ONLY CAUSE MORE SNOW TO BE PLOWED BACK INTO DRIVEWAYS!!!
With the amount of snow forecasted, please understand that the plows are going to do everything to make the roads as clear as possible and may push snow somewhere that residents prefer that it not be (bus stops, corner, driveways etc). Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

Woolwich Township is a township in Gloucester County, New Jersey. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 10,200, reflecting an increase of 7,168 (+236.4%) from the 3,032 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 1,573 (+107.8%) from the 1,459 counted in the 1990 Census.
Woolwich was formed by Royal charter on March 7, 1767, from portions of Greenwich Township, and was incorporated as one of New Jersey's initial 104 townships by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798. Portions of the township were taken to form Franklin Township (January 27, 1820), Spicer Township (March 13, 1844, now known as Harrison Township) West Woolwich Township (March 7, 1877, now known as Logan Township) and Swedesboro (April 9, 1902).
Woolwich Township is undertaking a project which will result in an Open Space and Recreation plan, setting goals and timelines for community needs including passive and active recreation, trail systems, waterway access, and will develop a timeline and suggestions for best possible land uses throughout the Township to meet these goals.
The public is encouraged to participate in this process as we plan and map our future recreational needs and opportunities and create a plan that will take Woolwich Township well into its future.
We urge and invite you to take our Open Space and Recreation Plan Survey by clicking on the following link:
