LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Environmental Commission endorsed an ordinance at the township council meeting on Monday that would regulate the growth of bamboo that has been growing on a number of residential properties in Livingston.

The ordinance was initially scheduled to be introduced at the Feb. 6 township council meeting. However, deputy mayor Edward Meinhardt and councilman Michael Silverman both said Monday that they have heard from residents who thought the proposed ordinance would place an onerous financial burden for cleanup of bamboo on property owners—especially those on whose property the plants was growing wild when they purchased their homes.

At the suggestion of township attorney Sharon Weiner, council members indicated that they would hold a public hearing on the bamboo-regulation proposal on Feb. 6 to allow for maximum resident input. Instead, the council will hold off on a formal vote in case any “tweaks” were to be made to the measure.
