October 26, 2021

HAMILTON, NJ (MERCER)– The Hamilton Township Council unanimously voted to accept a donation of a parcel of land on Route 33 at no cost to the Township with the intention of preserving it as open space.

The 2.02-acre wooded property, donated to the Township by Anthony Palagano, sits adjacent to the Cross and Shamrock on Route 33. The Township intends to continue to keep the property undeveloped through open space.

“I want to thank Mr. Palagano for his donation to Hamilton,” said Mayor Jeff Martin. “It is a win-win for Hamilton – help to control development on Route 33 at no expense to our taxpayers.”

Hamilton Township currently has over 5,700 acres of combined preserved land – a total that is greater than the entire City of Trenton. For more information on Hamilton Township Land Use and Planning, visit http://www.HamiltonNJ.com/CED.
