Greystone Reforestation Plan Open to Residents tonight


PARSIPPANY — Parsippany residents will have the opportunity to learn about the state’s reforestation plan as it pertains to the demolition of Greystone Psychiatric Hospital, tonight, Monday, September 29 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in an open forum presented by the state. The meeting will be held at Parsippany-Troy Hills Municipal Building, 1001 Parsippany Boulevard, in the council’s chambers.

As part of New Jersey’s No Net Loss Reforestation Act, the Division of Property Management and Construction (DPMC) will hold a public forum to allow residents to see and hear about deforestation and reforestation on the state-owned lands.

Under the construction details, the state will be removing hazardous materials from the Block 7, Lot 1 of the “new campus” of Greystone that falls inside Parsippany’s borders. The cleanup includes the closure of two existing landfills. Trees from the 3.01-acre lot will also require removal as part of the remediation.

Statements also can be mailed to Project Manager Richard Herrero at NJ Department of Treasury, Division of Property, Management and Construction, 20 West State Street, Trenton, New Jersey 08625. The public-comment period ends November 28.
