[ARCHIVED] NJDEP To Host Green Acres Rulemaking Public Stakeholder Meeting

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Office of Transactions and Public Land Administration (OTPLA), is continuing its series of stakeholder meetings to obtain input on Subchapter 25 and 26 of the Green Acres Program rules. These stakeholder meetings are open to the general public and are in addition to the December 13 and 15 meetings the NJDEP hosted specifically for local officials.

Subchapters 25 and 26 govern the maintenance of Green Acres encumbered parkland and other post-funding responsibilities, including the diversion and disposal application processes. The Green Acres rules are not set to expire until December 2025. However, since the NJDEP has not made substantial changes to the rules since 2005, they plan to update the rules before they expire. The OTPLA has prepared a listing of hot topics that may be addressed in the upcoming rulemaking and are meant to spur discussion at the stakeholder meetings.

The next stakeholder meeting, to be held remotely through Microsoft Teams, is scheduled for January 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. Those who are unable to attend but wish to comment may contact the OTPLA via email at

Contact: Frank Marshall, Esq., Associate General Counsel,, 609-695-3481, x137.
