This notice is to provide you with written notification that the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills, located at 1001 Parsippany Boulevard, will hold a public hearing to obtain comments regarding its application to the NJDEP Green Acres Program, for the proposed minor diversion of parkland owned by the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills.

The public hearing will be held on Thursday, May 13th, 2021 at 7:00 P.M., to be hosted via a virtual meeting platform. Due to the State of Emergency and Public Health Emergency declared by Governor Murphy, and in an effort to prevent further spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health and safety of Township residents, this meeting is being held by electronic remote access via WebEx Meeting (, entering First Name/Last Name/E-mail Address when prompted) or via the conference line (844-621-3956, PIN: 631180).

In addition to oral comments presented during the hearing, written comments may be submitted to the agencies listed below.

The proposed parkland diversion would involve the construction on a 0.164-acre portion of Block 736, Lot 9.01 on the official tax map of the Township, by the Township’s water department of a replacement well, pump house and access drive in support of the Township’s drinking water system.

This application also requires a minor diversion from the Morris County Board of County Commissioners.  The proposed minor diversion of a 0.164-acre portion of Block 736, Lot 9.01 forms part of the open space lands preserved, in part, with funding assistance from the Morris County Open Space, Farmland, Floodplain Protection and Historic Preservation Trust Fund as part of the Smith Road Sheep Farm (Block 736, Lots 9.01 and 9.02) in 2005.
