To protect the well-being and safety of the 1000+ Liberty Lake children & staff by preventing/altering the proposed construction of a 900,000 square foot warehouse adjacent to the property.

For more than 40 years, Liberty Lake, located in Mansfield Township, New Jersey, has been a popular picnic, reunion, and corporate outing destination for thousands of local families each year, and since 2002 has been the Premier Children's Day Camp in New Jersey. Every summer at Liberty Lake Day Camp, hundreds of local children and teenagers transform our campus into an "extraoridnary world," creating a developmental environment that is unparalleled in our area.

Today, the future of Liberty Lake is jeopardized by a Florida based, multi-million dollar developer who is being supported by Mansfield Township officials, the Governor's Office of Planning Advocacy, and a dream team of influential lawyers and consultants to construct a warehouse complex consisting of four buildings totaling 1.9 million square feet surrounding our campus. The largest of these warehouses is nearly 900,000 square feet– the size of SEVEN HOME DEPOTS. The developer is planning to erect this gargantuan warehouse on the land locked 100 acre parcel (currently used for farming) directly beside Liberty Lake. The other side of this property is a beautiful Farmland Preservation farm, as are many of the adjacent properties.

The children, families and staff of Liberty Lake THANK YOU!!

1. The Margolis Proposal is an illustration of juvenille ageism, or discrimination towards youth.

2. There are empty warehouses throughout NJ, and we don't need any more. We support "win-win", safe/clean development ideas such as Solar Fields.

3. Research has shown that commercial development in rural communities fail to stablize local tax rates and inflict irreversible damage to communities.

4. Bleak financial conditions in New Jersey need not result in short sighted decision making, the negative effects of which will last for forever.

5. Increased traffic, exposure to diesel fumes, flooding and contamination of the lake and nearby watershed are some of the hidden costs of this project.
