To improve and protect the environmental quality of our township by partnering with neighbors, community leaders and area businesses to work together to preserve our precious resources and to create a clean, safe place to live and work for future generations. To encourage residents to safeguard the environment and to do their part in whatever ways they can to make Frelinghuysen a greener community.

Environmental Resource Inventory Update

Ensuring the high quality of life for the residents of Frelinghuysen Township is a driving force behind this Environmental Resource Inventory Update. Documentation of the natural resource base: the geology, hydrology, ecology, and wildlife will convey the scope and condition of the resources upon which the Township relies. This document, in combination with the 2012 Open Space and Recreation Plan Update and the 2008 Comprehensive Farmland Preservation Plan, is a guide for the Township's future growth and preservation.
