Projects Include Blue Acres Acquisitions in Flood Zones and Green Acres Parks

The acquisition and management of land for conservation will proceed under two bills sponsored by Senator Kristin Corrado and advanced today by the Senate.

“Every county in the state will benefit from these bills,” said Corrado (R-40). “These are initiatives that will improve the standard of living in our densely populated Garden State, including the development of parks and recreation lands, and purchasing and maintaining acreage for Green Acres and crucial Blue Acres projects.

“These are worthwhile investments that the voters endorsed for the betterment and preservation of our state.”

Corrado’s bills have bipartisan sponsorship, and constitutionally dedicated Corporate Business Tax revenue provides the funding

  • S-3229 appropriates $37.16 million to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to fund capital projects and park development on land administered by DEP’s Division of Parks and Forestry, and Division of Fish and Wildlife, pursuant to the Preserve New Jersey Act.
  • S-3230 appropriates $30.3 million to DEP to fund state acquisition of lands for recreation and conservation purposes, including Blue Acres projects for flood-prone properties.
