I don't know why I included this law on this web page about 5 years ago, but thought I'd leave it here anyway.
A2714 Provides that use for recreation and conservation purposes of lands included in certain adopted redevelopment plans does not subject those lands to Green Acres diversion requirements and process when they are eventually used for other purposes as designated in those plans.
12/12/2002 Approved P.L.2002, c.124.
An Act concerning the use for recreation and conservation purposes of lands included in certain redevelopment plans, and amending P.L.1975, c.155 and P.L.1999, c.152.
2. Section 32 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-32) is amended to read as follows:
32. a. Lands acquired or developed by a local government unit or a qualifying tax exempt nonprofit organization for recreation and conservation purposes using constitutionally dedicated moneys in whole or in part shall not be conveyed, disposed of, or diverted to a use for other than recreation and conservation purposes without the approval of the commissioner and the State House Commission and following a public hearing held at least one month prior to those approvals. Approval of the commissioner and the State House Commission shall not be given unless the local government unit or qualifying tax exempt nonprofit organization agrees to (1) replace the lands with lands of equal or greater fair market value and of reasonably equivalent size, quality, location, and usefulness for recreation and conservation purposes, as approved by the commissioner, or (2) pay an amount equal to or greater than the fair market value of the lands, as determined by the commission, into the Garden State Green Acres Preservation Trust Fund. Moneys so returned to that fund shall be deemed wholly a part of the portion of that fund available for grants or loans to local government units or grants to qualifying tax exempt nonprofit organizations for the acquisition of lands for recreation and conservation purposes as provided pursuant to this act.
