Westfield Area Info

Westfield was founded in the 17th century (1794). West Fields meant the western fields of Elizabethtown (now Elizabeth) - and remained primarily a farm community and were then mostly open fields, but the development of the Jersey Central Railroad in the 1860s through Westfield, brought on rapid population growth. Today there are 33,000 residents, many of whom commute to New York and Newark.

The township maintains a center for recycling of garden refuse, while garbage collection is conducted by private firms. Glass, aluminum cans and newspapers are recycled bi-monthly with curbside pick-up.

The town has a mayor-council form of government with a mayor and eight councilmen. The town hall is located next to Mindowaskjn Park on East Broad Street.

Westfield has over 4,000 students attending the six elementary schools from kindergarten through fifth grades, two intermediate schools for grades six through eight and a high school for grades nine through twelve. There are also three private elementary schools. Each public school has its own library run by a media specialist. Classes are conducted by teacher specialists in art, music, physical education and reading. There is an advanced learning program and an active special services department, while an alternative high school program is also available.
