Open Trails NJ presents at Medford Lakes Council Meeting

On Thursday, 9/10, Open Trails NJ was given an opportunity to present at the Medford Lakes Town Council meeting.  We made the following key points:

  • The Motorized Access Plan (M.A.P.) closes 58%, or 274 miles, of the road and trail network to motorized vehicles – many of which have been used for decades
  •  The MAP will be ineffective and will only impact law abiding outdoor enthusiasts and was developed with no public input
  • Federal Recreational Trails Funding was granted on the premise of creating a maintenance program for 600+ miles of roads, but was used to actually reduce milage to 202
  • The public must be engaged and we must start with a blank sheet of paper.  Scrap the MAP
