On June 25, 2009, the State Legislature voted with strong bipartisan support in the Senate and Assembly to let the New Jersey voters decide in November whether to continue the State’s investments in open space. The timing was crucial, with the Garden State Preservation Trust essentially empty and no longer able to fund the NJ Historic Trust restoration grants or undertake new land preservation vital to New Jersey’s water supply, health and prosperity. The GSPT has been pivotal in supporting statewide and local efforts to provide for open space, parks, farmland preservation and historic preservation.
AIA-NJ, together with Preservation New Jersey and other coalition members of the New Jersey – Keep It Green Campaign, ask for your support. Please consider voting to support the funding of the Garden State Preservation Trust Fund this coming November.
