Environmental Commission

The Environmental Commission advises the Township’s Land Use Board on environmental issues related to all proposed development, and recommends appropriate measures for mitigating the impact in accordance with Township, State and Federal ordinances, laws and regulations.

One of the first Environmental Commissions established in New Jersey, the commission also conducts research into open land and works to conserve these areas whenever possible. Members and volunteers also work to establish or improve walking trails for humans, and bird habitats and other sanctuary areas for wildlife.  Beginning in 2018, the Environmental Commission has taken on the duties of the former Open Space/Farmland Preservation Commission.
