THANK YOU FOR GENEROUS DONATIONS MADE & LAWN SIGNS DISPLAYED

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW....PARAMOUNT DEVELOPERS PROPOSED PLANS FOR 32 ACRES AT DEAL RD AND 35N IS NOT A DONE DEAL

MOST IMPORTANT, OCEAN TOWNSHIPS MASTER PLAN HAS NOT BEEN OFFICIALLY UPDATED SINCE 1990. GO TO BREAKING NEWS TO VIEW OCEAN TOWNSHIPS OFFICIAL MASTER PLAN, ALTHOUGH IT HAS HAD SEVERAL ZONING CHANGES, THE OFFICIAL MASTER PLAN IS AN IMPORTANT  DOCUMENT AND SHOULD BE RESPECTED. 


THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY REQUIRES A COMPLETE  REVIEW AND NEW DRAFT OF THE OFFICIAL MASTER PLAN EVERY TEN YEARS. 

THE PLANNING BOARD AND COUNCIL ARE MAKING SERIOUS REZONING DECISIONS, BASED ON A MASTER PLAN THAT IS 28 YEARS OLD. 


WE THE PEOPLE MUST STAND UNITED, to push back against the townships decision to slaughter what is left of our historic woodland, open space, habitat for wildlife, and wetlands.


SAVE 32 ACRES aims to raise awareness, within Monmouth County, and Nationally that recent zoning changes in Ocean Township NJ, including ordinance #2303, are not consistent with the Townships 1990 Master Plan. The latest zone change, in ordinance #2303 was specific, and necessary FOR THE DEVELOPERS in order to accommodate a super size WaWa gas station with convenience Store, to be constructed in Wetlands Territory.  The Official Master Plan has no commercial property on Deal Road & 13 Acres only on Rt. 35N, more in scale with a professional building/ Doctor's office.

NOTE IMPORTANT PIE CHART FROM RUTGERS UNIVERSITY'S ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY,     ON OCEAN TOWNSHIP, FROM OCTOBER 2017  

This study was done before the clear cutting on West Park and Hope Road


  • RED  75%   URBAN
  • GREEN 7.9%  FOREST
  • BLUE 15% Wetlands

In November 2017, Ocean Township residents agreed and voted two to one  to an additional tax to protect   open space.  


The wetlands & mature tree canopy, protect our neighborhoods from flooding.  


The WETLANDS, are an intricate part of Ocean Township's natural watershed system. Rainstorms WILL spill TOXIC CHEMICAL WASTE, from the proposed GAS STATION'S impervious ground cover, aka blacktop parking lot, into the surrounding soil, in this case surrounding wetlands, which drain into Poplar Brook, which runs through our recreational parks and neighborhood yards, into the Atlantic Ocean, 2 miles from the toxic source. 


RESIDENTS MUST COME TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT, 


IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL WHO OPPOSE THE SLAUGHTER OF WHAT LIMITED OPEN SPACE IS LEFT IN OCEAN TOWNSHIP, SHOW A UNITED  FRONT AT THE UPCOMING PLANNING BOARD MEETING.               


We need clean Oceans where our children swim, and  non toxic water streams running through the parks, where our children play.                       


How did we get here?

A PIECE OF OUR TOWNSHIPS "QUESTIONABLE" HISTORY HAS ALLOWED FOR THIS VALUABLE , YET FRAGILE, HISTORIC WETLAND FOREST,  TO RECEIVE A COMMERCIAL OVERLAY ZONE, WHICH IS DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT FROM OCEAN TOWNSHIPS OFFICIAL MASTER PLAN, 


AFTER THIS ZONING CHANGE AND OTHERS, THE TOWNSHIP'S MAYOR, WAS FOUND GUILTY AND INCARCERATED FOR REZONING TOWNSHIP PROPERTIES, SPECIFIC TO MEET DEVELOPERS NEEDS. 


THIS PARTICULAR COMMERCIAL OVERLAY ZONE, THAT THE MAYOR APPROVED, PERMITS THIS LAND TO BE DEVELOPED WAY BEYOND WHAT IS RECOMMENDED IN THE TOWNSHIPS MASTER PLAN.                                                                


TODAY, WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO RAISE A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MONEY,  TO HIRE A LAND USE  ATTORNEY OF OUR OWN, WHO WILL REPRESENT OCEAN TOWNSHIPS TAX PAYING RESIDENTS, WHO VALUE OPEN SPACE & WOULD LIKE TO STOP THIS HIGHLY COMMERCIAL PROJECT, WITH EXTENSIVE IMPERVIOUS GROUND COVER,  FROM MOVING FORWARD. 

NJ APPLESEED IS OFFERING TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS, THROUGH THEIR COMMUNITY SUPPORT,  501C STATUS.
