The Lake Musconetcong Regional Planning Board was established as an advisory board on January 10, 1990. Its purpose is to recommend and implement programs to maintain and improve the quality of the Lake Musconetcong Watershed areas. The board reports to the municipalities of Byram, Netcong, Roxbury, Stanhope and the Counties of Sussex, Morris as well as the State of New Jersey. It consists of members from each town and the state. Meetings are held monthly. Visitors are most welcome.
Lake Musconetcong is a vital part of the regions economy and recreation. Surrounded by four quaint towns, it's only on hour from New York city and a great place to spend a day with your family and enjoy the many restaurants and recreational activities on the Lake and surrounding recreational spots.
You can help in any number of ways from becoming a harvester operator or supporting key programs such as the fishing contest, clean the Lake day or donations.
Board meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month in the Netcong municipal building at 7:00 PM. Click this button to read a copy of the monthly minutes. Minutes can also be downloaded.
