Pinelands Commission “Pipeline” Meeting Rescheduled for September 14th

The message below is from the Pinelands Preservation Alliance.  The decisions of the Pinelands Commissions affect the bay that we live on, around, and play in and on!  Full details can be found here.


The Pinelands Commission announced that they have cancelled the September 8th meeting scheduled for the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River in an article in the Burlington County Times on September 6th.
The meeting was re-scheduled for September 14th in response to a letter submitted by our lawyer 

 September 1, 2017.
We pointed out that scheduling the vote for September 8th was a violation of the Pinelands Commission’s own rules and resolution PC4-17-10 which affords interested parties the right to request an evidentiary hearing within 15 days of the release of the Executive Director’s report.  September 8th was only 10 days after the report was issued.
Date: Thursday, September 14, 9:30 a.m.
Location: **War Memorial Theater
Address: 1 Memorial Dr., Trenton, NJ 08608
