The draft of the Monmouth County Open Space Plan is now online and available for public review and comment. This plan establishes the direction and priorities for the land preservation program of the Park System and acts as a tool for the state and local municipalities in their planning and also encourages complementary action.
The scope of the plan indicates the importance the Park System places on not only the acquisition and development of the park properties, but the preservation of natural resources, the connections with community, and the enhancements to the quality of life of Monmouth County’s residents. We encourage you to take a look and let us know what you think.
In addition, two public information meetings are scheduled to review the plan and take public comments. The schedule is as follows:
- September 25 at 7 p.m. at Thompson Park
Thompson Park Visitor Center Beech Room
805 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, NJ 07738
- October 2 at 7 p.m. at the Manasquan Reservoir Environmental Center
Manasquan Reservoir Environmental Center Auditorium
331 Georgia Tavern Road, Howell, NJ 07731
