All Borough owned lands not already sold, designated for another use, or in the planning process for sale, are open and available for nomination.
A land nomination is an opportunity for Borough residents to propose the future use of available Borough-owned parcels of land.
When a parcel is nominated, you are essentially asking the Division of Land Management to evaluate the parcel you indicate and for the purpose by you indicated. Field studies are conducted, research is compiled and a report of recommendations is produced. Recommendations go through public review, as well as internal coordination through other Borough Departments and certain Advisory Commissions. The Borough Mayor and Assembly review the report, and a final decision is made. Depending on the outcome of this final decision the property may be sold, proposed for further planning and research, or retained.
The Borough owned land inventory can be viewed HERE where property account numbers (PANs), and other pertinent information to assist you with identifying land you may be interested in nominating is found. Division staff are happy to assist you at the counter or by telephone.

All nominations received will be posted on this page for public review. Status of land management's review of the nomination proposal will also appear on this page.
A nomination may be declined if it duplicates a nomination received within the past five years.
