Local and Environmental Leaders Unite Against Developers
Call- in Press Conference to be held Thursday to Discuss Time of Decision Bill
What: Environmentalists will join the League of Municipalities and local leaders in a call-in press conference to discuss concerns with the “Time of Decision” bill passed recently by the New Jersey Legislature.
The bill alters the process exempting developers from changes in municipal ordinances and zoning, severely hindering the ability of municipalities to do sound land use planning. This legislation will undermine the rights of citizens and local governments to protect natural resources and determine the future growth of their communities.
Who : New Jersey Sierra Club, New Jersey League of Municipalities, Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC), NJ Conservation Foundation, NJ Environmental Federation, local mayors
Date: Thursday, April 8
Time: 1 p.m.
