Election Day 2014 proved a great success for open space. Voters overwhelmingly said YES to preserving New Jersey’s open space, clean water, farmland, parks, natural lands, and historic sites. Ballot Question 2 amended the state constitution to set aside a percentage of the corporate business tax for preservation and was approved by over 65% of NJ Voters.
This funding measure comes as our watershed faces increasing pressure and protecting our land becomes more important than ever before. Investing in open space ensures a healthy environment for all New Jerseyeans, present and future.
The voters of Morris County approved a measure to add trail development to county’s open space program. Over 70% of voters approved the measures and Harding Land Trust looks forward to being able to use this funding source to increase the trail presence at Primrose Farm. Expect updates in 2015!
Harding Land Trust is grateful to our supporters and supporters of open space throughout the Garden State. There is much work to be done and we look forward to continuing to protect and preserve open space!
