More than 20 years have passed since the inception of the Morris County Preservation Trust Fund programs.
To assess the future needs for the Trust Fund, the county contracted with the consulting firm Brandstetter Carroll, Inc., to undertake an analysis of the open space preservation, farmland preservation, historic preservation, and park development programs.
The findings were presented to the freeholder board at its July 9 work session in Morristown.
The report is now posted online at http://www.scribd.com/collections/4648289/Final-Draft-Preservation-Trust-Fund-Analysis-Strategy-Report-Collection.
