Public Input  on PPE Zoning held at October 2016 Planning Board Meeting                             
The Township Council has requested that the Planning Board undertake an examination related to the suitability of current PPE (Parks & Public Education) Zoning regulations and make recommendations to Council for updates and modifications, with priority focused on uses, buffers and setbacks.   

The PPE Zoning designation is utilized for areas in Medford where there is educational and recreational activities; including the operation of public and private elementary school facilities and quasi-public campground activities, as well as municipal buildings, churches, libraries and open space, parks and parkland and municipal infrastructure.

Members of the public were invited to attend the October 2016 Planning Board meeting for a public portion for input from residents.  Members of the public were afforded the opportunity to comment on any aspect of the current PPE Zoning regulations.

 The meeting was archived for viewing via the Medford Township website:  http://www.medfordtownship.com/content/233/243/967/default.aspx  T
