Open Space Trust Fund

The mission of the Open Space Trust Fund is to assist in the execution of policy made by the union County Board of Chosen Freeholders to conserve open space, provide recreational opportunities, and to preserve historic sites.


When the Trust Fund was created by referendum in November of 2000, the voters of Union County indicated their strong commitment to all three aspects of this initiative: acquisition of open space, expansion of recreational opportunities, and preservation of historic properties in Union County. This office works diligently to assist the Freeholder Board in providing direction in each area, and as a result the residents of this county continue to see ever expanding benefits in all areas.
