PASSAIC COUNTY BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS AND THE NEW YORK-NEW JERSEY TRAIL CONFERENCE APPROVE MEM

(Paterson, NJ) – At the September 13th meeting of the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Resolution No. R20160722 was passed by approving a memorandum of understanding between the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference for the management, maintenance, and construction of several trails in the Passaic County Park System. The Memorandum of Understanding establishes a clear framework for the Passaic County Department of Parks and Recreation to work in partnership with the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference staff and extensive base of volunteers to ensure that the Passaic County Trail Network remains among the best in the State of New Jersey.

“The Passaic County Park System is home to some of the most scenic and sought after trails in the tristate area,” stated Freeholder Director Theodore “TJ” Best. “By partnering with the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, we are ensuring that these trails will be managed and maintained within industry best practices and that Passaic County’s Trail Network remains a tourist destination moving forward. The Passaic County Trail Network brings visitors and tourists into Passaic County, activity that helps sustain our local economies, and the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders remains steadfast in its efforts to improve and promote these assets.”

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is a non-profit volunteer-driven organization located in Mahwah, New Jersey. Since its foundation, the Trail Conference has adopted, built, and maintained over 2,000 miles of publicly accessible and authorized trails in New York and New Jersey, including extensive work on trails located in the Passaic County Park System.

"The Trail Conference is pleased to formalize its long-standing relationship with the Passaic County Park System and we look forward to strengthening our partnership and connecting our residents to the beautiful open spaces in Passaic County" said Edward Goodell, Executive Director of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.
