The Medford Township Reexamination Report of 2017 recommended changes to the Park, Public, Education (PPE) Zone to the original intent of the Municipal Master Plan to include public uses such as, municipal parks, open space parcels, schools, and public buildings and facilities, such as Town Hall, and remove non-public parcels including some but not all, youth camps, cemeteries, places of worship, and residential uses which have been placed in the zone.  The non-public parcels placed in the PPE Zone will generally revert to conditionally permitted uses, with buffer and setback requirements, using the underlying zoning designations.

The PPE Zoning Districts Master Plan Reexamination Report is on file in the office of the Planning Board in the Municipal Building and is available for inspection by clicking HERE
