When shoveling, fire hydrants
should be dug out. Firefighters
need to be able to find hydrants
quickly, and time shouldn’t be wasted shoveling snow in order
to hook up a hose.
No vehicles can be parked
on the designated side of a street
when snow covered, in order to allow
the plows to remove snow.

Please make full use of driveways.
From W.P. Code Enforcement
Sidewalks must be shoveled within
24 hours. Snow must be cleared from both sides of corner properties.
Keep sidewalks clear of snow and
ice so children can walk safely
to and from school.

Excavation of Shared Force Main in Paterson Reveals Serious Problem
Excavated force main pipe can be broken with a shovel.
Welcome to Woodland Park, N.J.
     West Paterson’s name was changed to the Borough of Woodland Park, effective January 1, 2009. A refer-endum on the Nov. 4, 2008 General Election ballot, calling for the name change, resulted in a majority of the registered voters in favor of changing the name of the borough: 2,136 Yes to 2,111 No. On Dec. 17, the Mayor and Council approved a resolu-tion accepting the election results and officially de-claring Woodland Park as the borough’s new name.
     A second referendum was placed on the Nov. 3, 2009 General Election ballot seeking to have the borough’s name revert back to West Paterson. Voters defeated the question: 2,248 No to 2,216 Yes. Therefore, the borough’s official name will remain Woodland Park.

     In this website, you’ll find information about our municipality’s services and our community.
