In 2016 at the recommendation of Mayor John E. McCormac, Jane McLaughlin, then owner of the European School of Dance, spearheaded the creation of the Fords Business Community (FBC). With help from then, 2nd ward Councilman Rick Dalina, & long time Fords businessman Keith Smith, Jane pounded the pavement up & down New Brunswick Avenue recruiting members, and so, the journey began. The FBC was incorporated as a non-profit in August of 2016 to promote the Fords, Hopelawn and Keasbey businesses. The FBC was one of three communities created throughout Woodbridge Township to support the different "Main Streets", downtowns and vibrant businesses of the multiple
towns making up Woodbridge Township.
