The Superintendent of Schools of the local and regional schools within the Township, or the Chief Administrative Officer in the case of any private or parochial school, and the Township Clerk for the public parks or public library, are hereby directed and shall have the continuing obligation to promptly notify the Township Engineer and the Township Solicitor of any changes or contemplated changes in the location and boundaries of any property owned by or leased to any elementary or secondary school or school board for schooling use, Township public parks or public buildings, or school crossings.

§ 69-4 Additional matters and findings.

A. 
It is understood that the map approved and adopted pursuant to § 69-1 of this chapter was prepared and is intended to be used as evidence in prosecution arising under the criminal laws of this state and that, pursuant to state law, such map shall constitute prima facie evidence of the following:
(1) 
The location of elementary and secondary schools and public parks and/or public buildings within Evesham Township.
(2) 
The boundaries of the real property of public parks and/or public buildings and real property owned by or leased to a school or a school board.
(3) 
School property and public parks and/or public buildings are and continue to be used for their intended uses.
(4) 
The location and boundaries of areas which are on or within 1,000 feet of school property and 500 feet of public parks and/or public buildings.
B. 
Pursuant to the provisions of N.J.S.A. 2C:35-1, a prosecutor is not precluded from introducing or relying upon any other evidence or testimony to establish a violation of the offense defined in that statute, including uses of a map or diagram other than the one approved and adopted pursuant to § 69-1 of this chapter. The failure of the map approved herein to depict the location and boundaries of any property which is, in fact, used for school purposes and which is owned by or leased to any elementary or secondary school or school board, or public park or public building, whether the absence of such depiction is the result of inadvertent omission or the result of any changes in the location and boundaries of such property which have not yet been incorporated into a revised approved map, shall not be deemed to be an official finding and record that such property is not owned by or leased to a school or school board, that such property is not used for school purposes or that such property is not a public park and/or building.
