Notice of Rule Proposal
State Park Service Code, N.J.A.C. 7:2

Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments to
N.J.A.C. 7:2, the State Park Service Code.  The State Park Service Code, N.J.A.C. 7:2, governs the administration, operation, management and use of State parks, forest, recreation areas, historic sites, natural areas, marinas, golf courses, botanical gardens and other lands, waters and facilities under the jurisdiction of the Department and assigned to the State Park Service in the Division of Parks and Forestry.

The Department proposes to amend its rules to address visitor safety and environmental
stewardship throughout the State’s parks through amendments relating to the use of fires, stoves
and lanterns, firearms and fireworks and motor vehicles (including over-sized and extra heavy
vehicles). 

The Department proposes to repeal existing Subchapter 10, Golf Courses as the Department no longer operates golf courses.  The Department proposes to amend Subchapter 17, Fees for Services and Facilities Provided by the State Park Service. 

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated July 16, 2012.  A copy of the proposal is available from:  The NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s website, http://www.nj.gov/dep/rules/proposals/20120716a.pdf; and LexisNexis Customer Service at (800)223-1944 or www.lexisnexis.com/bookstore.  Be advised that there may be a fee for obtaining a copy of the proposal from some sources.
