Mission Statement

The mission of the Township’s Open Space Trust Committee is to investigate available properties in Livingston and make recommendations to the Township Council on the advisability of having the Trust purchase those properties for Open Space preservation or for conservation, recreation, or permanent preservation.

Powers & Duties

The Open Space Trust Committee shall initially prepare a report recommending the acquisition of specified lands in fee, the acquisition of specified easements and/or the acquisition of development rights to specified lands. The report shall prioritize the acquisitions recommended.

The Township Council, after reviewing the report, shall determine which properties, easements or development rights should be pursued. After selection of the lands, easements or development rights, the Township may acquire by gift, purchase or by eminent domain proceedings the identified lands, easements or development rights within the financial constraints established by the Township Council.
