The Historic Preservation Advisory Committee (HPAC) was established in 1988 for the purposes of protecting, enhancing and perpetuating historical resources within the Township.  On February 27, 2006, the HPAC Ordinance Chapter 93 was repealed and replaced with the new Chapter 21 entitled the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) and a new Chapter 93 entitled “Historic Preservation” pursuant to the N.J.S.A. 40:55D-107 et seq. and which is intended to perform all of the functions of a historic preservation commission pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:55D-109.  The HPC still identifies and designates historic landmarks and districts.  One of their duties is to advise the Planning and Zoning Boards on the inclusion of historic sites and landmarks in the recommended capital improvement program.

The Commission is comprised of five members (four-year term) and two alternates (two-year term) appointed by the Mayor.  Members must meet classification criteria and may be non-residents.

Unless noticed otherwise, HPC meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Gourgaud Gallery, Town Hall.
