Lawrence NJ Creates The Green Maps System to Serve Communities

Lawrence New Jersey volunteers have begun developing an interactive map this month to highlight the township’s green initiatives.  The project is called The Green Maps System and it will be serving 14 NJ communities.  The types of green spaces it will display include, community parks, trails, open spaces, and sustainability projects.  Community members add original content like pictures, ratings and tips.  They will even be able to share it via Facebook and Twitter.

Lawrence Township earned a grant from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation last year and have been collaborating with Montegomery, Hillsborough, and Princeton townships to train instructors and provide resources to support the green maps.
