New Jersey Open Space Policy Plan.
New Jersey State Dept. of Community Affairs, Trenton.
An Open Space Policy Plan was developed for the State of New Jersey to provide an adequate blueprint for preserving open space and creating a desirable recreational environment in the State in anticipation of expected increases in population and urbanization. Consideration was given to local, county, State, and Federal responsibilities in the development of an open space statewide program. Emphasis was placed on the priority for open space planning and acquisition in the northern half of the State because of an already existing deficit in open space acreage in that area. Plans for both the 10 and 20 million levels of population were considered. In effect, the Open Space Policy Plan was designed to make future open space easily accessible by locating it in close proximity to potential and already existing urbanizing areas of the State. (VM)
