Hunterdon Freeholders Approve Commercial Corridors Land Analysis
Taking the county’s economic development strategy another step forward, Hunterdon County’s Board of Freeholders this week approved a Hunterdon County Corridors Parcels Study which will evaluate properties along state and county roadways so that more information is available for future land management decisions.

Freeholder Matt Holt, the Board’s Economic Development liaison, commented that the timing is perfect for this evaluation. “This study will focus on future opportunity,” stated Holt. “Given the disruption of the local economy by the pandemic and the most recent NJDEP decision limiting economic development near county waterways, it could not come at a more opportune time.”
