     One of the earliest examples of a town-wide program to protect and maintain the ecological environment of the community.



2.      Borough of Fort Lee, 1973 and 1978

     Recognition of aesthetic, environmental and ecological considerations. First master plan in New Jersey to utilize sector analysis and time phasing.
