Lincroft Village Green Association

Our Mission

The Lincroft Village Green Association is a civic organization of community volunteers committed to quality of life issues in the village of Lincroft, including traffic calming, safer vehicular and pedestrian circulation, historic preservation, and beautification.


The Lincroft Village Green Association was established in May, 1999 as a small group of concerned residents who organized in order to block the sale and development of one of the last remaining open parcels of land in the village of Lincroft. The land, which is located on Newman Springs Road across from the Lincroft Commons Shopping Center, was zoned for commercial development. The group quickly developed a strategy to bring their pursuit to the forefront and, through various means, including a petition with over 2000 signatures, established contacts with local, county and state government officials. As a result of their determination and untiring efforts, the Lincroft Village Green Association, along with the help and support of the Middletown Township Committee, successfully rescued the parcel of land which is now preserved as open space…for all to enjoy.
