Highlands Act turns 10

New Jersey's Highlands Act is 10 years old. The Star-Ledger published a guest column called, "Highlands Act still a good deal a decade later: Opinion." Some will argue that the Act has lost its momentum and isn't having a noticeable impact anymore. The column, by Julia Somers (executive director of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition) and Elliott Ruga (the coalition’s senior policy analyst), counters that the next few years are going to a key time for the Highlands Council. To be ready, they say, we need "to remind ourselves why the law was needed."
