**Draft 2020 Ocean County Open Space Plan (released 9/14)**

We are pleased to anounce the Draft 2020 Open Space, Parks, and Recreation Plan is now available. This plan has been prepared as an update to the Open Space element of the Ocean County Master Plan. This update is a requirement of the NJDEP Green Acres program in order to facilitate further awards of funding through the Planning Incentive Grant program. The plan also captures changes to the Natural Lands Trust Fund program as a result of the 2019 open space tax referendum.
