Bokyo's property is located at a large concentration of county green space, adjacent to the Plainsboro Preserve and the Sondek and Tall Timbers parks in South Brunswick. If added to two undeveloped areas on the South Brunswick Township acquisition list, the area would add up to 800 acres of unbroken open space.
As expected, Turnpike officials are opposed to the designation, but county planning officials also object, despite the farmland's strategic location and in the face of the preservation directives of the State Development Plan. Supporters of Route 92 sit on the board itself, creating a high hurdle for Boyko. A decision on the petition is expected by March 15.
