Putting the ‘ease’ back in municipal easements

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County’s next Greentable meeting will be held from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 12, at the Freehold Township Municipal Complex at One Municipal Plaza.

The meeting will provide Monmouth County residents and municipal officials with an overview of Millstone Township’s successful land stewardship program that is based on uniformity and consistency.

Millstone Township’s stewardship objective has been to provide good maintenance and preservation of the open space, farmland, easements and trails in the Township. This was accomplished by documenting recorded deeds, mapping the properties, installing monument markers for easement and trail location and identification, educating the public and about the properties, and performing baseline studies, including documenting, photographing and continued monitoring of the properties.

Speakers will include:

  • ·Pam D’Andrea, Millstone Township Land Use Administrator
  • ·Pat Butch, Millstone Township Open Space and Farmland Preservation Council Chair

Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss ways that municipal easements can be created, expanded and improved. The speakers will talk about strategies, programs and local efforts already under way.

The Monmouth County Greentable is a periodic meeting of individuals, groups and government representatives who work together to preserve open space and farmland. The group presents information about past, present and future local preservation projects as a way to share experiences, expectations and ideas.
