Spotlight on: Fair Lawn, New Jersey

Fair Lawn, a five square mile community on the western side of central Bergen County, successfully combines the warmth and beauty of a small town with the conveniences of a suburban community. The town, which celebrated its 75th anniversary in 1999, underwent its greatest growth period in the 1940's and 1950's. The population more than quadrupled from 1940 to 1968, from 9000 residents to a peak of 37,000. There are currently nearly 32,000 people who call Fair Lawn their home.

Drive down any one of the tree lined streets in the community and you are likely to find a number of cape cod style homes prevalent in the area.

The average sale price for a residential property for the first half of 1999 was approximately $220,000. Higher priced homes can be found in the historic Radburn section of the town. This unique community was one of the first modern planned communities in the United States. It was intended originally to be a self-sufficient entity know as "Town for the Motor Age".

The Fair Lawn Recreation and Parks Department has been known as one of the premier in the field, throughout Bergen County and New Jersey. The department has received over seventeen Bergen County awards for programs and individual accomplishments. There are cultural, leisure and sports activities for all residents, from youths to senior citizens. The department is very responsive to the residents' requests regarding programs and facilities. Many of the activities in town take place at Memorial Park, which is also the home of the Memorial Pool. One of the most scenic sports in town is the picturesque path which runs along the Saddle River. Bicyclists and joggers can often be found on this bicycle path which winds its way over a bridge and two duck ponds into neighboring town of Paramus, Ridgewood and Glen Rock.

Of course many people moving into a town look for a strong school system. Fair Lawn schools have gained national recognition for high quality. The system was rated one of the top 100 best value school districts in the nation by Money magazine. The town was also the recipient of a $50,000 state aid maximum reward for financial efficiency as defined by the School Efficiency Program. The high school has received national recognition with Presidential Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence in Education.
