PUBLIC NOTICE - REQUEST FOR PUBLIC INPUT

TAKE NOTICE that under NJAC 7:36-25.3(m) the Township of Upper has filed a request with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Green Acres Program proposing to amend The Township's Recreation and Open Space Inventory (ROSI) to include a 1.43-acre portion of BLock 350, Lot 12 located along Mt. Pleasant-Tuckahoe Road (County Route 664) in the Township of Upper, Cape May County. This request is a response to the Green Acres Program's notice to the Township that it had reason to believe that a portion of Block 350, Lot 12 was held for recreation and conservation purposes at the time the Township of Upper accepted Green Acres Program funding and was erroneously not listed on the Township's ROSI.

The Township received Green Acres Program funding on two occasions between 1975 and 1982. As a condition of this funding, the Township was required to list on its ROSI all lands held for recreation and conservation purposes at the time of receipt of Green Acres funding. In its request, the Township indicates that 1.43 acres of the 6.16 acres within Block 350, Lot 12, consisting of one ballfield, a playground, and a wooded area around the playground, were held for recreation at a time when the Township reeived Green Acres funding. However, this area was omitted from the Township's ROSIs. The Township further indicates that the remaining 4.73 acres of Block 350, Lot 12 were held for general municipal uses, including but not lmited to a municipal building (now vacant) and a public words yard, and therefore should still be omitted from the Towhship's ROSI.

The Township's request, including an accompanying survey depicting the 1.43-acre area, and the prior Green Acres Program decisions on Block 350, Lot 12 are available for public inspection through the links in this posted website notice and in person at the Township of Upper Municipal Offices, 2100 Tuckahoe Road, Petersburg, New Jersey 08270 and at the NJDEP Green Acres Program Office at 501 East State Street, Trenon, New Jersey 08625-0420.

The Green Acres Program is soliciting public input on the Township's request and encourages the public to provide any information it may have regarding the historic us of Block 350, Lot 12 prior to 1982. Written input on the ROSI amendment request may be directed to:

PUBLIC NOTICE

The City of Hoboken is seeking the approval of the Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, pursuant to the New Jersey Conservation Restriction and Historic Preservation Restriction Act, N.J.S.A. 13:8B-1 et seq., to terminate previously established Deeds of Open Space which impact Block 80, Lot 1.01 and Block 81, Lot 2.01 referred to as 701 Harrison Street; and Block 81, Lot 3.01 (Units A, B and C) referred to as 700 Monroe Street in the City of Hoboken, Hudson County. The Deeds of Open Space were originally implemented as part of a previously approved redevelopment project, which approval was contingent upon the implementation of the Deeds of Open Space. Although the Deeds of Open Space were recorded, the redevelopment project was never developed and portions of the public space afforded by the Deeds of Open Space currently offer no reasonable public utility.  The termination of the Deeds of Open Space will result in the remediation, development and conveyance to the City of Hoboken of a 2.0 acre public park as well as other amenities in the Northwest Industrial Area of the City, and to establish public access to the park areas as set forth in certain Redevelopment Agreements to which the City is a party pursuant to Local Redevelopment and Housing Law, N.J.S.A. 40A:12A-1, et seq.
