Open Space Committee

In the face of development pressures, the preservation of areas of open space is vital to the protection of environmentally sensitive areas, providing recreational opportunities for the enjoyment of present and future generations of Montgomery Township residents, and to the preservation of Montgomery Township’s rich farming heritage. The Open Space Committee was formed to aid in the acquisition of open space in Montgomery Township.

The duties of the Open Space Committee are as follows:

  1. Make recommendations to the governing body on whether lands proposed for dedication for stream corridors, general open space, or farmland preservation shall be accepted or approved by the Township Committee.
  2. Seek on behalf of the Township, opportunities for the acquisition of open space and stream corridors, and for bringing participants into the Farmland Preservation Program in accordance with priorities established by the Township Committee.
  3. Interact with other boards, committees, and commissions in the Township in coordinating recommendations for the acquisition of open space and stream corridors, and the development of Farmland Preservation Program participants.
  4. Assist, as may be needed, in the implementation of open space, stream, corridor, and farmland preservation programs established or approved by the Township Committee.
  5. Perform such other duties as, from time to time, may be assigned by the Township Committee.

Meetings:  The Open Space Committee generally meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM with the Pathways Committee to follow.
