Mayor Barberio is proud to announce that the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills has once again become a national stand-out. Money Magazine just declared what we in Parsippany have known all along, PARSIPPANY IS THE 5th BEST PLACE TO LIVE IN THE USA. With many amenities, a top-rated school system, abundant recreational facilities, quality services, a business haven where corporations can set down roots, a safe and clean environment with easy access to highways, airports and mass transit, Parsippany offers residents a high quality of life. Money Magazine made their selection based upon those facts and more. They stated in the article, that “residents pay less in property taxes relative to their homes’ values in Parsippany than they do in 75% of the New Jersey locations on our list.”
According to Mayor Barberio, “It took a lot of work and effort to reach the status we achieved. I continually invite corporations to come in and speak with me regarding expansion and/or relocation to Parsippany to increase our ratables. Having had much success improving the business climate in Parsippany, we have been able to keep property taxes at bay.”
Money Magazine specifically made mention of Parsippany’s Tree City designation for 40 years. A lot of time and planning has gone into making Parsippany one of only two towns in the entire state to satisfy the criteria. Beautifying, caring and nurturing our trees is important to the environment and something Mayor Barberio has long advocated.
Mayor Barberio noted that Township administration, under his guidance, continues to provide excellent services to township residents. Promoting community spirit is important to our quality of life, therefore, a lot of time and effort is put in to continuing township events like the Fourth of July Fireworks, Fall Festival, Summer Concert Series and holiday parades and ceremonies. With the world we now live in, safety and vigilance are of the utmost importance. Mayor Barberio has increased Parsippany’s police force by double digits to ensure that every Parsippany resident feels safe and secure.
All in all, Parsippany continues to thrive and more people are taking notice!
