SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FUNDRAISER. The event will highlight the historical and environmental treasures of Harmony and White Townships in Warren County, where a proposed six-million square-foot warehouse development portends the annihilation of 585 acres of prime farmland along the Delaware River.Formed last spring (2019) in opposition to the White Township proposal, the Citizens for Sustainable Development (CFSD) has since been actively dedicated to raising community awareness about development projects inappropriate to the rural region. The group seeks funding to hire legal representation to advocate for residents' concerns regarding threats to the rural character and heritage of the area, and to their way of life. Guest speakers will include Julia Somers, Executive Director of the New Jersey Highlands Coalition, a prime coordinator and sponsor for CFSD. Also scheduled to speak are Fred Stine, liaison for the Delaware Riverkeeper Network; Richard Dalrymple, local Harmony historian and author; and Lenny and Gary Ziegler, collectors and experts of local Native American artifacts. Similar concerns about the spread of burgeoning industrial development and warehouse construction from the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania across the river into Phillipsburg, where massive warehouse development is already in the dirt, have made the issue a high priority focus for not only the Highlands Coalition, but also the Sierra Club, the Musconetcong Watershed Association, and other well-established environmental organizations that support open space, protecting watersheds, and sustainable development. Another citizens group, the Skylands Preservation Alliance, has risen in opposition to warehouse development proposals in the Musconetcong River valley, which runs along Warren County's southern border with Hunterdon.Advocacy for sustainable and “smart” growth, which often stems at first from concerns about overwhelming traffic, declining property values and threats to everyday routines, must eventually yield to the looming elephant in the room—the reality of climate catastrophe barreling towards us. Every day we see dramatic scenes of environmental disasters like the all-consuming fires in Australia and California, toxic drinking water, fracking debacles, pipelines invading sacred lands, the extinction of thousands of species every year. The insanity of inflicting yet more man-made insults to our local neighborhood on Earth has never been more apparent.The issue speaks to the need for restructured planning parameters and procedures, and the generation of legal environmental rights for communities. Societies all over the world have established the first global laws protecting nature. Close to home, and somewhat ironically, Pennsylvania's voters ratified, in 1971, the Environmental Rights Amendment to their state constitution, proclaiming their right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Adherence to the idea that public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come is crucial in our time.There is limited seating at the event.
