The Historic Preservation Committee is currently exploring what would be the best way for Metuchen to begin the process of preserving its older homes. We invite all who support this effort to attend the May 17th forum. We are anxious to talk to all members of the public about their thoughts and concerns so that we may move forward and present a recommendation to the Mayor and Council.

We still need a historical preservation element in our Master Plan.
