OFFICE OF LAND ACQUISITION (Acquisition of Land for Open Space and Recreational Use)

Atlantic County is one of only a handful of New Jersey Counties to establish an Open Space Trust Fund for the acquisition of land and water areas for regional parks. Active farmlands have recently been added to the eligibility list for Trust funding. The County Park Acquisition Program is a model program throughout the state and is recognized by a variety of conservation foundations as an expeditious method for establishing regional parks and open space in order to improve the quality of life for area residents.

During the past several years, over $1 million has been set aside for land acquisition. Over 500 acres of land have been targeted for acquisition using the Open Space Trust Fund. In addition to responding to unique land offers or bargain sales, the County can utilize their funds to augment State Green Acres funds.
