I have served on the Borough Council of the Borough of Peapack & Gladstone for many years, and have served the last 5 years as Mayor. Throughout my terms in office, it has been a great pleasure working with The Land Conservancy, with which the Borough has partnered since 1999. During that year, The Land Conservancy undertook the completion of our Open Space and Recreation Plan. Our partnership has been a very successful one by any standard. With the able assistance of The Land Conservancy, we have received 6 grants for open space and farmland preservation totalling @ $2.5 million from Somerset County, and $ 5,150,000 in grants from the New Jersey Green Acres program. If state farmland grants are included, the Borough, thanks to The Land Conservancy, has been awarded $ 11,325,000 in grant funds since 2000. Thanks also to The Land Conservancy's expertise, the Borough has also preserved 154 acres of pristine farmland, and is working on additional open space and farmland preservation projects. In addition, the Conservancy has done a masterful job of updating Farmland and related Plans.
