Welcome to the official website for Plainfield, New Jersey.

On behalf of the City of Plainfield, I greet you with the passion and enthusiasm that hopefully you share for our Queen City, Plainfield, New Jersey.

Plainfield has a very diverse, rich history, and our future is excitingly boundless. Please visit our downloads page which will provide you with some vital information about our city. The events page will provide you with activities that are happening in our city.

This is a difficult time for everyone in our country. Hard financial times and rising costs are forcing everyone, including the City of Plainfield, to re-examine their priorities. My main goal is to ensure a balanced and stable budget, with minimal or no impact on City services and ensuring that the City will be in a greater financial position as our economy returns to normal.

The City of Plainfield will be hosting a series of town hall meetings to educate and inform our residents about our efforts to stem the gang violence in our city and across the country. These town hall meetings will give residents an opportunity to hear the views of our elected officials and give suggestions that we can use as a community to improve our quality of life. Our goal is to ensure that each resident is a productive member of our community.

The many benefits of being a Tree City include creating a framework for action, education, a positive public image, and citizen pride.
