Public Hearing Heritage Minerals Development - Manchester NJ
Time & Place
Manchester High School, 101 S. Colonial Drive, Manchester NJ 08759
In 2016, your activism prevented the destruction of over 4,000 acres of Pinelands habitat within Manchester. We need you to act again.
The owner of the Heritage Minerals tract has proposed a 4,000 unit development with 40,000 square feet of commercial development. This proposal is in direct violation of the existing settlement agreement, which only allows for 2,450 units. This area provides valuable habitat for threatened wildlife species and essential ecosystem services for the Barnegat Bay watershed.
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is holding a public hearing on the application for a Coastal Area Facility Review Act (CAFRA) permit. Show up and voice your opposition to this project.
The proposal is over 1,500 units greater than the settlement agreement reached in 2004 and would cover approximately 900 acres of habitat in the Pinelands-impacting rare, endangered and native species habitat, wetlands, streams and groundwater, and our water supply as well as Barnegat Bay.
We need YOU to attend this important hearing to show your support for the environment.
In case of snow the hearing will be held on Feb. 13th. For more information call the Pinelands Preservation Alliance at 609-859-8860.
