What is an unincorporated community?


An unincorporated community is an area that does not have its own municipal government.  Such areas are within the political and administrative jurisdiction of a city, borough, township, town or village.  There are currently 184 unincorporated communities in New Jersey.  Examples:   Basking Ridge is within the incorporated Township of Bernards, Short Hills is within the incorporated Township of Millburn.   (Interesting facts:  Bernards Township does not have its own zip code.  Short Hills’ population is greater than Millburn’s.)
