In NJ there are 565 municipalities, 250 Boroughs, 52 Cities, 15 Towns, 245 Townships and 3 Villages. There are no unincorporated places in the state of NJ. Every segment of every road type should have a City Name in the Primary Field. When naming a segment use the incorporated name or the CDP (Census Designated Place) name when the place is locally known and/or more commonly recognized by that name. Note that the current map shows CDP names from the 2000 Census, please refer to the 2010 Census List to determine the most current information.
Any segment with the name "Greater XX Area" is a mistake and needs to be updated to reflect the accurate place name.
In the event of duplicate city names, consider adding "Twp" if applicable to one of those places.
|Alternate methods of resolving conflicting/duplicate city names is presently under discussion. Please refer to the forum New Jersey Cities and Towns for more information.|
