Welcome to Elk Township     "The Official Elk Township Website"


Elk Township, primarily known as an agricultural community, is made up of
almost 20 square miles at the southern end of Gloucester County.  On
many Township roads, visitors can find roadside markets offering the
best in Jersey Fresh produce, continuing its great tradition of farming. 
 Through good planning, Elk Township has been able to maintain a "country"
feel to its growth and residential development.   It is easily accessed by
major roadways in south Jersey and offers a positive environment for
business development and expansion.

Currently, Elk Township is participating with the Gloucester County Office of Emergency Management to update our municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible. 
As part of the on-going update of the Gloucester County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, a Preliminary Municipal Appendix is available for review that addresses natural hazard mitigation issues for our community.  The Preliminary Municipal Appendix can be downloaded from nj4hmp.com by clicking on “Gloucester County” and then clicking on “Elk Township”. 
If you are interested in learning more about this project, please visit: › Hazard Mitigation Project. The website includes current information and offers you the opportunity to submit any comments or questions.
