American rescue Funds for NJ Parks
We have an urgent opportunity to influence how Governor Murphy and the New Jersey Legislature spend the remaining pandemic relief monies provided to New Jersey by the federal government. This program was called the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and approximately one billion dollars is yet to be dedicated. Some of these funds should be used to help New Jersey fix its state parks and forests so we can all enjoy them.
This action is part of the Fix Our Parks Campaign. Join today!
Governor Murphy Must Act Now
In early 2020 Governor Murphy announced the NJPACT (New Jersey Protecting Against Climate Threats) initiative. These measures were supposed to protect the residents from the catastrophic effects of climate change, including flooding. Two years and two devastating storms later, and nothing has happened. Learn more about impact of two years of inaction at www.NJPACTnow.org and take action by emailing the Governor. We can’t afford to wait any longer. Read the blog.
Protect Clean Air in Pleasantville – No Demolition Dump!
There is a proposal to create a construction and demolition transfer dump station in the Douglas Park neighborhood of Pleasantville, NJ in Atlantic County. It will accept up to 500 tons of debris a day. Demolition debris is currently handled at the huge 347-acre ACUA (Atlantic County Utilities Authority) campus. There is no need for this project. This facility does not meet the criteria of NJ’s new Environmental Justice Regulations.
