Marlboro County Acquires 56 Acres To Preserve As Open Space

Marlboro Township completed the purchase of Stattel Farm, at Rts. 520 and 79 in Marlboro, a project they have been working on for more than nine years. A total of 56 acres will be preserved as open space forever.

The acquisition of this land does not impact the budget or local taxes. The Township applied land preservation funding already authorized and in place, including the Township’s dedicated Open Space Trust Fund, NJ Green Acres Matching Grant and state Agricultural Development Committee funding in order to complete the acquisition.

Marlboro Township has logged several open space preservation successes with the Tennent Road (30 acres), Smith Farm (16 acres), Penksa Farm (21 acres) and Baydock Holdings (50 acres) projects.

The Township's continuing efforts to maintain open space is important for the quality of life in our community today, as well as preserving our community's lifestyle for future generations.
