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."
