PRESERVE Holmdel (PH) is a grass roots, non-profit organization that stopped the construction of two artificial turf fields at Cross Farm Park (CFP) in 2016.  PH is currently:

  • Supporting the acquisition of 44 acres of land along Route 34 by the Monmouth County Park System for additions to Holmdel Park

  • Carefully monitoring the proposed land swap of 115 acres of CFP to the County in exchange for Holmdel receiving 13 acres of Holmdel Park

  • Actively working to stop the construction of an unsightly, expensive, and unnecessary concrete fitness court at CFP

  • Proactively monitoring all township committee meetings and land proposals that would change the face of Holmdel Township

PRESERVE Holmdel filed a petition with over 700 names to the township on September 6, 2016 requesting a referendum to have the residents of Holmdel decide on the expansion of Cross Farm.  The initial petition was denied as insufficiently notarized.  The re-notarized petition was accepted by the township clerk, who qualified 624 signers on October 11, 2016: 

"Since I am satisfied as to the truthfulness and genuineness of the signatures, I have determined that the Amended Petition may now be certified as sufficient to proceed to referendum."
