The Open Space Advisory Council (OSAC) was formed on March 20, 2007 by the Hazlet Township Committee in order to make recommendations to the Township Committee on Open Space acquisitions utilizing the Open Space Trust Fund that was established on January 1, 2007 (as per voter approval of a referendum passed on the November 7, 2006 election).


The purpose of the Hazlet Township Open Space Advisory Council is to provide guidance and support to the Township Committee and the Land Use Board on issues and matters of acquiring open space for perpetual preservation that are in the best interest of the citizens of the Township of Hazlet. 

The Council shall create, promote, and disseminate information regarding the preservation of open space to protect the environment which provides a natural habitat for wildlife, while offering opportunities for public enjoyment through active and passive recreation.
