Hunterdon Board Director Says
Biden Administration
Should ‘Get On Board’ With New Jersey
In Opposing Penn East’s Taking of Preserved Land
Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Director Susan J. Soloway, at the April 6th Board meeting, supported New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal’s brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in opposition to the Penn East Pipeline’s efforts to take preserved land, and called for the Biden Administration to ‘get on board’ with New Jersey.
Director Soloway, who had previously called for the Biden Administration to reverse its support of the pipeline’s effort to take state and county preserved land, stated, “Attorney General Grewal’s brief is very clear in its statement to the Court that there is no constitutional exception to sovereign immunity for eminent domain lawsuits by non-governmental entities."

Hunterdon Agreement Brings
Green Acres Total
To Over $6.3 Million
For Open Space Projects
Hunterdon County’s Board of Commissioners, at the Board’s April 6th meeting, approved the County’s tenth project agreement since 2000 with the state Green Acres program, bringing total funding over that time to more than $6.3 million.
Commissioner Matt Holt, the Board’s liaison for Planning and Land Use, stated, “The Board has had a long-standing successful strategy of gathering funding partners in pursuit of preserving open space and farmland.
The concept is having more funding partners involved in a preservation project, leaves more county funds available for other worthwhile land conservation efforts.”

Hunterdon Solicits Residents’ Input
For Hazard Plan Update
The mission of the Hunterdon County Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Plan (HMP) is to identify and reduce community vulnerability to hazards, in order to protect the health, safety, quality of life, environment and economic integrity of the county’s communities, and public input is welcomed, Deputy Director John E. Lanza reported at the April 6th Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners meeting.

Commissioner Lanza, the Board’s liaison to the Public Safety Department, said, “Each year the Office of Emergency Management updates the plan to qualify for grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This is necessary to retain Hunterdon County’s resiliency against weather related incidents, potential disasters such as chemical spills or train accidents, and assists the county engineers with developing and maintaining larger projects such as bridges, roadways, and other construction jobs.
