To help the Department of Public Works do their job efficiently, please remember to use extreme care to ensure there is no foreign debris such as tree limbs, rocks, bottles, etc. in the leaves. These items can cause costly breakdowns of the machine and delays in the pick up schedule.
Ideally, it is recommended that a fenced holding pen or similar means of containment be devised to prevent leaves from blowing after they are raked. Residents should be aware that the leaves must be raked to the curb in order for the vacuum hose to reach them.
To ease the collection process and reduce the risk of fire from automotive exhaust systems, residents are urged not to park vehicles in the area near the raked leaves that have been placed in the street.

Correction: Location of the new CVS will be at the Corner of Main Street and Route 38. The Corner of Route 541 (Mt. Holly Bypass) and Route 38 has already been approved for the construction of a new Republic Bank.
November 3, 2017, Lumberton – Mayor Sean Earlen and the Lumberton Township Committee are thrilled to announce that CVS Pharmacy is acquiring the lands at the corner of Route 38 and Main Street to establish a new pharmacy and store location at this location.
“We are pleased to have been able to work with CVS to bring this exceptional ratable to Lumberton. It will provide a significant benefit to our residents and serve as an anchor to the continued revitalization of the Route 38 corridor,” said Mayor Sean Earlen.
“Lumberton offers CVS a great opportunity to expand our market. The Township’s stable tax rate and commitment to its commercial partners guided CVS in its desire to come to seek this location for its next store,” explained Al Stein, Real Estate Developer with Feinberg & Stein of Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
“We appreciate that Mayor Earlen was able to help bring the former landowner and our client together and work through the developmental hurdles that can be present in abandoned properties,” Stein continued.
The corner lot has sat vacant in recent years following a fire at the former gas station located on the property. The project includes both the corner lot and the adjacent restaurant site.
Mayor Earlen concluded, “CVS’s decision to locate its next store in Lumberton will transform this intersection and remove the blight that was left by the vacated service station. We look forward to the submission of its application to the Land Development Board so that we can keep this major redevelopment initiative moving forward.”
Mayor Sean Earlen, Committeemen Mike Mansdoerfer and Lew Jackson, along with Lumberton Residents marked the Grand Re-Opening of the Basketball Court at Bryan Freeman Park on October 28, 2017 with a Ceremonial Ribbon Cutting. Bryan Freeman Park is located in the Bobby’s Run Section of the Township and is open from Dawn to Dusk, 7 days a week.
Burlington County Freeholders Award a $200,000 Grant to Lumberton Township to Construct an Amphitheater at the Village Green Park
Lumberton, NJ – October 26, 2017 – The Lumberton Township Committee was informed that the Burlington County Freeholders awarded a $200,000 grant through the Burlington County Municipal Park Development Program to construct an Amphitheater. Township Officials expect that the project will be completed in phases, with this grant covering Phase 1. Phase 1 of the project will consist of concrete walkways, stage and canopy construction and all electrical work needed for the Amphitheater. The remaining phase will be the construction of tiered slopes for seating. Work on this project is expected to last roughly two years to fully complete.
The Village Green Park is a 30 Acre Lot within the Township of Lumberton which formally served for 58 years as the home of the Burlington County Farm Fair from 1952 to 2010. When the Farm Fair moved to the fairgrounds off of Route 206, the Lumberton Township Committee began work on plans to bring amenities to the Park to continue to attract residents to utilize and enjoy.
Mayor Sean Earlen stated, “I would like to thank Freeholder Director Garganio, as well as the rest of the Burlington County Freeholders for their continued support of our township’s active and passive recreation needs.” “Since 2011, we have received $1,078,710.00 dollars in grant money from the county and these dollars have already produced a new playground here at the Village Green, along with a Dog Park, Community Garden and Canoe Launch on the Rancocas, we have added sports fields at our Municipal Building Complex as well as completely renovating all of our recreation amenities in the Bobby’s Run Section of town,” added Mayor Earlen.
This overall project is a continuation of the Township Committee’s commitment to refurbishing the Public Parks and Playgrounds throughout the Town. All of these projects were funded in part by grants from the Burlington County Municipal Park Development Program. Most recently, the Township was able to completely refurbish three playgrounds, and the tennis courts in the Bobby’s Run Section of the town through a $137,000 grant received that year and remaining savings from prior year projects. The Township just completed the basketball court refurbishment at Bryan Freeman Park.
“We look forward to continuing our work with the Burlington County Freeholder Board as we engage in the construction of this newest project of a state of the art outdoor amphitheater provided through grant funds received from the Municipal Park Development Program,” added Deputy Mayor Jim Conway, who serves as one of the Engineering Project liaisons to the Township Committee. “We are hopeful to have construction fully completed on the new outdoor amphitheater at the Village Green by the end of the summer in 2019 in time for the Lumberton Paddle Festival,” stated Deputy Mayor Conway.
