In a filing early this morning, an individual named Robert Moss filed to intervene in Porrina v. Township of Mahwah and Mahwah Township Council.
Mr Moss, an advocate for increasing the amount of land under Green Acres encumbrances, in his motion (posted below) “seeks to protect his interest in preserving Green Acres encumbrances on Defendant Mahwah’s parklands”.
Mr. Moss has previously intervened in Hannon v. West Milford (NJ PAS-L-1675-03) and was a plaintiff* in Melvin v. Seaside Heights, NJ A-004585-15 (combined with NJ A-005372-15) and has a history of activism on behalf of environmental causes as per the brief.
The position of Mr. Moss is that permitting Mahwah to give back the $3.4M+ that they received in grants through Green Acres funding would be impermissible when other remedies, such as injunctive and specific performance remedies are simultaneously being sought by the State.
As always, we will continue to monitor and keep the public apprised of any developments.17cv11988_3
* The post initially listed Mr. Moss as an intervenor in Melvin v. Seaside Heights. He was, in fact, a plaintiff. The post has been corrected.
