Montville Environmental Commission Appeals to Residents for Input on ERI Print E-mail

The Montville Township Environmental Commission will be holding a public information session on February 20, 2013 at 7:30 PM in the Montville Township municipal building to gather input on the draft update to the Township’s Environmental Resource Inventory (ERI).  The draft ERI, which catalogues the Township’s natural features is available below for review.  This would be the most recent update in many  years. A presentation will be made by the Township's Planning consultant, who is preparing the base document, which consists of descriptions and GIS mapping.  The public is welcome to submit any photographs of scenic areas of the Township to Meghan Hunscher, Principal Planner via e-mail or hard copy to the Planning and Zoning Office. 

Once complete, the ERI will serve as a dynamic reference document that may be used by all Township Boards, Committees, Commissions, and residents.  The document includes geology, hydrology, soils, wetlands, vegetation, contaminated sites and historic and cultural features.  The ultimate goal of the document and mapping is to provide parcel-specific information related to environmental resources and constraints and for use when reviewing development applications and amending the Master Plan and Land Development Regulations.  The cost to update the ERI is being partially funded through a grant from the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC).

Please contact Township Principal Planner Meghan Hunscher, PP or Environmental Commission Chairman Larry Kornreich with any questions.
