Responsibilities of the Open Space/Farmland Advisory Committee have been divided between the Environmental Commission and the new Agricultural Advisory Committee as of January 1, 2018.  Open Space members now act as a subcommittee within the Environmental Commission.  Their goals remain to inform, educate, advise and encourage local officials and residents on the value of and need for preserving Bedminster Township's open space.  The new Agricultural Advisory Committee focuses on sustainable agriculture; relevant county, state and federal regulations and programs; recommended strategies or initiatives which ensure open space preservation, land stewardship, agricultural sustainability or municipal compliance. The Agricultural Advisory Committee meets quarterly and has yet to formally organize their meeting schedule for 2018.
