A copy of the map referred to herein can be found on file in the office of the Township Clerk.
The Drug-Free School Zone map approved and adopted pursuant to § 99-1 of this chapter shall continue to constitute an official finding and record as to the location and boundaries of areas on or within 1,000 feet of property owned by or leased to any elementary or secondary school or school board which is used for school purposes until such time, if any, that this chapter shall be amended to reflect any additions or deletions with respect to the location and boundaries of school property and Drug-Free School Zones.
The School Board, or the Chief Administrative Officer in the case of any private or parochial school, is hereby directed and shall have the continuing obligation to promptly notify the Township Engineer and the Township Attorney 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 and which is used for school purposes.
The Clerk of the municipality is hereby directed to receive and to keep on file the original of the map approved and adopted pursuant to § 99-1 of this chapter, and to provide at a reasonable cost a true copy thereof to any person, agency or court which may from time to time request such a copy, along with a certification that such copy is a true copy of the map approved and adopted herein and kept on file. It is hereby further directed that a true copy of such map and of this chapter shall be provided without cost to the County Clerk and to the office of the Monmouth County Prosecutor.
The following additional matters are hereby determined, declared, recited and stated:
A. 
It is understood that the map approved and adopted pursuant to § 99-1 of this chapter was prepared and is intended to be used as evidence in prosecutions 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 within the municipality;
(2) 
The boundaries of the real property which is owned by or leased to such schools or a school board;
(3) 
That such school property is and continues to be used for school purposes; and
(4) 
The location and boundaries of areas which are on or within 1,000 feet of such school property.

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, 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, or that such property is not used for school purposes.
D. 
All of the requirements set forth in L. 1988, c. 44 concerning the preparation, approval and adoption of a Drug-Free School Zone map have been complied with.
