This bill would expand the definition of "acquisition" used in P.L.1997, c.24 (C.40:12-15.1 et seq.), the law concerning the establishment of county and municipal open space trust funds, to specify that the term includes the demolition of structures on, the removal of debris from, and the restoration of those lands to a natural state or to a state useful for recreation and conservation purposes. Under current law, counties are authorized to establish "County Open Space, Recreation, Floodplain Protection, and Farmland and Historic Preservation Trust Funds" and municipalities are authorized to establish "Municipal Open Space, Recreation, Floodplain Protection, and Farmland and Historic Preservation Trust Funds." One of the allowable uses for these funds is the acquisition of lands for recreation and conservation purposes. This bill would specify that "acquisition" includes the demolition of structures on, removal of debris from, and restoration of those lands to a natural state or to a state useful for recreation and conservation purposes. In doing so the bill will resolve any differing interpretations or applications which may be occurring presently at the local level with regard to the term "acquisition."
