§ 275-1 Sale and/or development of certain City-owned land prohibited.

A. 
Findings. There exists in the northwest section of the City of Absecon, a large tract of vacant, undeveloped and generally wooded City-owned land; and the Planning Board of the City of Absecon, as part of its 2006 Reexamination of the Absecon Municipal Master Plan, has expressed a desire to retain such land for open space. The City Council of the City of Absecon concurs with the Planning Board in its desire to maintain open space within the City of Absecon; and the owner of the lands in question, it is the opinion of City Council that the most effective mechanism to achieve the aforementioned goal is for the City not to sell the subject lands for development purposes. The City Council desires to insure that all property owners who would be affected by any change in policy as relates to the subject lands are fully informed as to any such changes.
