SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Scotch Plains was one of seven New Jersey communities to win recognition as a 2019 Healthy Town through participation in the Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC), a program of the Quality Institute, in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.

“Achieving the Healthy Town designation is a tremendous achievement for Scotch Plains,” Mayor Al Smith said in a press release earlier this year. “It reflects our commitment to being a sustainable community and our recognition that healthy lifestyles on the part of our residents are a key component of our community.”

The Township would like to reinforce its commitment to improving the health and wellness of our community.
