Northwest Jersey Freeholder Boards Call For Regional Re-opening

Provide A Gateway To Re-opening Resources
The Boards of Chosen Freeholders in Hunterdon, Warren, and Sussex Counties have called on Governor Phil Murphy to allow for a regional re-opening of businesses in New Jersey’s northwest corner and announced the creation of a ‘Gateway to Resources for Business Re-opening’ website that provides the latest information on the best practices for commercial re-openings.

In a joint communication to the Governor, Freeholder Board Directors Shaun C. Van Doren of Hunterdon County, Richard D. Gardner of Warren County, and Sylvia Petillo of Sussex County, stated, “All of our Freeholder colleagues agree that the state should authorize a segmented approach that allows for the public health conditions within our region to permit a speedy re-opening of businesses in Hunterdon, Sussex, and Warren Counties.”

The Hunterdon County Freeholder Board, at the May 19th Freeholder meeting, recognized those providing emergency medical services, nurses, and law enforcement officers, with Proclamations acknowledging their extraordinary service and dedication throughout the years, and particularly during the global health crisis.
Freeholder Board Director Shaun C. Van Doren said, “These men and women on the front lines, serving our communities day and night, deserve our gratitude for their continued efforts throughout the year, but most importantly during the current health crisis. These Proclamations are most timely."

Hunterdon’s 579 Trail Provides a Fresh Harvest for All
A new promotional effort seeks to highlight one of Hunterdon County’s most abundant assets- the availability of locally grown food and agricultural products. The Hunterdon County 579 Trail was created to promote the county’s many farms, markets, vineyards, and more, along a corridor that’s centered on historic County Road 579.

The new website, www.hunterdon579trail.com, launched by The Hunterdon County Tourism Partnership and funded by Hunterdon County Economic Development, is part of an effort to urge area residents to re-discover what’s right in their own backyard.

“This is a time when residents might not be traveling as much as they have in previous years,” commented Hunterdon County Freeholder Sue Soloway. “Luckily they don’t have to go far to enjoy the county’s rich agricultural tradition.”
