Land Nominations

All Borough owned lands not already sold, designated for another use, or in the planning process for sale are open and available for nomination. A land nomination is an opportunity for Borough residents to propose the future use of available Borough-owned parcels of land.

Process

When you submit a nomination:

  1. The Division of Natural Resources Development will evaluate its potential use as indicated by you on the form.
  2. Field studies are conducted, research is compiled and a report of recommendations is produced.
  3. Recommendations go through public review, as well as internal coordination through other Borough Departments and certain Advisory Commissions.
  4. The Borough Mayor and Assembly review the report and a final decision is made.
  5. Depending on the outcome of this final decision the property may be sold, proposed for further planning and research, or retained.
