Allamuchy is located in
Warren County along the Pequest River. The Musconetcong River
forms the Township's southeastern border.
Most of Allamuchy's 21 square
miles are still forests and farms. The only substantial development
is the Panther Valley community at the juncture of Interstate
80 and Route 517, a 1,200-home development of single-family
homes, condominiums, and townhouses.
Township officials are trying
to limit the further growth of development in the township.
Open space acquisition is a major part of this strategy. The
Township and its very active Environmental Commission are aggressively
pursuing state Green Acres money and have put together a detailed
open space plan for the Township.
