HISTORIC PRESERVATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Meetings are the 1st Wednesday at 7:30 PM at Town Hall
The Historic Preservation Advisory Committee
has the responsibility for developing ordinances for historic preservation, advising other government planning bodies about historic elements involved in proposed projects, and updating the Township's historic sites survey with an eye toward designating specific districts and sites as suitable for historic registration. The Committee was created by a Township Resolution
in 1997. The Historical Preservation Advisory Committee is modeled on Historical Preservation Commissions already functioning in neighboring towns.
Long Hill Township has among the highest density of historic structures of any location in Morris County owing to the combination of our isolated geography and low impact development. This historic heritage is a resource which should be encouraged in a way that protects and enhances the quality of life of our residents and visitors.
THE HISTORIC PRESERVATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE MET ON JANUARY 4TH, 2012 AND AGREED ON THE FOLLOWING 2012 Goals:
- Apply for State Grant for interior Millington Schoolhouse~Old Town Hall rehabilitation project
- Publish Millington Schoolhouse~Old Town Hall Brochure highlighting its rich history
- Maintain the Long Hill Historic Sites List
- Work toward placing properties onto the National Register of Historic Places and educate owners on the benefits of being on the register. (Contrary to the prevailing myth, there is no downside)
- Present final Cooper headstone preservation memorial project to the Township Committee for their consideration.
- Present the Historic Element of the Master Plan to the Planning Board for their consideration.
