Not trying to be secretive at all, my apologies if it came off that way. I'm on mobile now or I would post the pdf I got from Mark Texel, I will post it later when I get to a PC, but you can imaging what it says, just reiterating the FAQ drivel. With regards to the resolutions, I think cherokee261 might have posted the Medford Lakes one, but I don't think a soft copy has been been posted of the Medford one.

Ok, I Don't want to rain on anybody's parade but it's not over in these towns. I will have a copy of Medford Townships resolution tomorrow but this is the short of it. Yes they oppose it, for now, but Medford Township invited the DEP to be present at the next meeting on September 8th. That's the big one in my mind. It's after both sides are heard a decision could be made. We just got our voice heard at this point. I wish I could celebrate but there is still a major uphill battle.

Looking for a space station now:D

Medford Lakes
Attached is a copy of the resolution that passed in Medford Lakes. The borough will be sending a copy to surrounding towns, but please forward it to your local elected officials also and ask them to introduce a similar motion at their next meeting.
This is my post with the Medford Lakes resolution, it shows up on page 32 of the thread (for me anyway). I'm a Medford Lakes council member, and it got passed here because I wrote it and thankfully my fellow council members agreed with my position. We sent it out to surrounding towns, but I encourage everyone to send a copy to their own town's elected officials and follow up, to include attending their next meeting to publicly ask them to pass the resolution. Medford also agreed with us and passed the same resolution last night. The more towns the better, it sends a strong message that we're not going to tolerate this assault on our rights!

Medford did indeed invite the DEP, but I can assure you if they are brave enough to show up, they will limp out feeling bruised and battered. Medford officials made that clear when they extended the invite!

I am always thrilled to see it because many of the things I make are on it.

I hope it all goes that well. I'm still celebrating a bit. It ain't over until the fat lady sings. Just saying.;)

"...ate the effectiveness of the M.A.P. to ensure that it meets the goals we all share of promoting access to the Forest and preserving and protecting the Forest’s environment..."

I don't like his word selection. I'm certain everyone that has signed the petition, written letters, called, etc to voice concerns about the park service's actions would not agree with preserving the forest. Conserve, yes. There is a big difference in meaning and action between those two words.
