Trenton, New Jersey 08625

 

In accordance with N.J.S.A. 13:1D-51 through -58, the State of New Jersey, Department of Environmental Protection ("NJDEP") will hold two public hearings to seek comments on the proposed conveyance of property in the City of Millville, Cumberland County.

The property proposed for conveyance is designated for tax purposes as Block 578, Lot 19 (comprising approximately 81 acres, hereafter "the Property.") The NJDEP proposes to convey the Property through a direct sale to either the City of Millville ("City"), the Millville Urban Redevelopment Corporation ("MURC"), the Cumberland County Improvement Authority or any other nonprofit or public entity designated by the City. The Property was purchased by the NJDEP from the prior owner, Durand Glass Manufacturing Company, Inc. ("Durand"), in July 2013 for $335,000. The proposed sale price for the conveyance by the NJDEP to the City or its designee is $395,000. If the property is conveyed by the NJDEP to the City or its designee, it will be used for commercial industrial/purposes consistent with current zoning.

The Property is located off Gorton Road; the street address of the Property is 1 Gorton Road. It is irregularly shaped, with a maximum depth of about 2700 linear feet and a frontage of about 735 feet. The property is currently administered by the NJDEP's Division of Fish and Wildlife as part of the 474-acre Menantico Ponds Wildlife Management Area.

A copy of a report analyzing the proposed conveyance is available for download with the link following this notice. A general location map for the Property is included as Figure 1 of the report. An aerial map of the Property is included as Figure 2 of the report.

The proposed sale price is based on three components: the $367,000 full fair market value of the Property as of January 2013 (as established by appraisals commissioned by the NJDEP as part of the purchase); approximately $13,000 in technical costs incurred by the NJDEP as part of the purchase of the Property and $15,000 for administrative costs associated with the proposed conveyance.

If the proposed conveyance of the Property is approved and the Property is sold to the City or its designee, the NJDEP intends to apply $367,000 of the sale proceeds to the purchase of a minimum of 900 acres of land within Block 582, Lot 1 in the City of Millville for addition to the Menantico Ponds Wildlife Management Area. The proposed replacement property is known locally as the Holly Farm property and is located at 3001 Main Street E in the City of Millville. The remainder of the proceeds of the sale ($28,000) will be returned to the Garden State Preservation Trust Fund (or other appropriate Green Acres bond fund) for use in future open space acquisitions. However, if the Holly Farm purchase cannot be concluded within three years of the actual conveyance of the Property, the NJDEP will identify and purchase other suitable replacement land of at least equal acreage, in fee, within Cumberland County using the $367,000 sale proceeds.

State House Commission approval is required for this proposal. If approved, the Department anticipates that the earliest the proposed conveyance could occur is mid-August 2014.

Stafford Township, New Jersey 08050

 

The TOWNSHIP OF STAFFORD, a municipal corporation of the State of New Jersey ("Township"), has been directed by the State of New Jersey, Department of Environmental Protection ("Department") and the State House Commission ("Commission") to modify the compensation that had previously been approved in connection with the Department's and Commission's approval of the Township's application to divert Green Acres encumbered land for the purpose of the development of facilities that produce electrical energy from solar technologies. The original diverted area is approximately 47 acres and is located along Haywood Road within the Stafford Business Park, between New Jersey State Highway Route 72 and the Garden State Parkway, more particularly known as part of Block 25, Lot 39 (and formerly known, as Block 25, Lot 93; and Block 13, Lots 22.01 & 68) as shown on the Official Tax Map of the Township of Stafford, Ocean County, New Jersey (the "Landfill Lot").

The Landfill Lot is also subject to a conservation restriction dated December 7, 2006, and recorded on December 11, 2006, at Deed Book 13446, Page 0118, with the Office of the Ocean County Clerk (the "Conservation Restriction"), by, and between, the Township of Stafford and the New Jersey Pinelands Commission.

The diversion and partial release of the Conservation Restriction were originally approved by the Department on November 7, 2010 and by the State House Commission on December 9, 2010. The Department's and Commission's approvals were appealed to the Superior Court, Appellate Division by various parties challenging the project (the "Appeal"). Based on issues raised by the appellants, the Department asked the court to remand this matter to the Department for reconsideration of the appropriate compensation for the approved diversion and release of conservation restriction. The Appeal is currently subject to an Order of Remand that requires the Department to conclude any remand proceedings by January 4, 2014. In order to comply with the court's order, the Department and Commission issued an Order on Remand directing the Township to amend the diversion application to bring it into compliance with the applicable statutory standards.

The amended application submitted by the Township to the Department differs from the original application in the following material respects:
  • The area proposed for diversion (and the release of the conservation easement) has been reduced from approximately 47 acres to approximately 34 acres.
  • The Township proposes to offer as replacement land two parcels totaling approximately 41 acres (designated for tax purposes as Block 54, Lots 21.02 and 26).
  • In order to comply with a previous Appellate Division Order, the amended applicationincludes supplemental information pertaining to endangered and threatened species habitat on the Landfill Lot.
  • The Township has proposed to revise the financial terms of the lease between the Township and Walters Development Group (the entity responsible for the construction of the solar project.)

Take Notice that in accordance with N.J.S.A. 13:1D-51 through -58, the State of New Jersey, Department of Environmental Protection (''NJDEP''), Green Acres Program, will hold two public hearings to seek comments on a proposed exchange of property with the Township of South Brunswick, Middlesex County.

The NJDEP property proposed for exchange is an approximately 5-acre portion of a 30-acre property acquired by the Green Acres Program for the Division of Parks and Forestry in 1982 as an addition to Pigeon Swamp State Park. The property is designated for tax purposes as Block 18, Lot 20.01 in the Township of South Brunswick, Middlesex County. The street address for the property is Fresh Ponds Road (but the property does not have direct access to Fresh Ponds Road).

The Township has also requested that the NJDEP convey temporary and permanent easements in Block 18, Lot 10.01 and Block 18, Lot 20.01, as follows:

Block/Lot Proposed Acreage Conveyance Type
Block 18, Lot 10.01 4.2 acres Temporary Easement
Block 18, Lot 10.01 0.25 acre Permanent Easement
Block 18, Lot 20.01 4.6 acres Fee
Block 18, Lot 20.01 0.54 acre Temporary Easement
Block 18, Lot 20.01 0.10 acre Permanent Easement

The proposed conveyances are needed by the Township in conjunction with the construction of a two (2) mile, two (2) lane segment of County Route 522 extending between US Route 130 and Cranbury - South River Road (County Route 535). Although the segment of Ridge Road that runs between US Route 130 and County Route 535 is currently designated as a part of County Route 522, the Township proposes to construct a new roadway north of (and parallel to) Ridge Road as the final segment of Route 522 in order to divert commercial truck traffic away from residential areas along Ridge Road. The proposed road project also involves the construction of a connector road from Route 522 to Fresh Ponds Road in order to limit access by trucks from Route 130 to Fresh Ponds Road. All properties proposed to be conveyed to the Township are wooded undeveloped lands located at the southern edge of Pigeon Swamp State Park and are not currently in active recreational use.

In exchange for the proposed conveyances, the Township and the County will convey to the NJDEP, in fee, two properties totaling approximately 59 acres for addition to Pigeon Swamp State Park (a 5-acre portion of Block 18, Lot 19.01 and all of Block 18, Lot 23). Block 18, Lot 19.01 is primarly wooded uplands; Block 18, Lot 23 contains a large pond, extensive freshwater wetlands and wooded uplands. The acreage proposed for conveyance is approximate and is subject to adjustment of up to 10 percent on the basis of a survey to be reviewed and approved by the NJDEP's Green Acres Program as part of the execution of conveyance documents for this transaction.
