§ 84-4 Additional findings.

The following additional matters are hereby determined, declared, recited and stated:
A. 
It is understood that the maps approved and adopted pursuant to § 84-1 of this chapter were prepared and are intended to be used as evidence in prosecutions arising under the criminal laws of this state and that, pursuant to state law, such maps shall constitute prima facie evidence of the following:
(1) 
The location of elementary and secondary schools within the municipality.
(2) 
The boundaries of the real property which is owned by or leased to such schools or a school board.
(3) 
Such school property is and continues to be used for school purposes.
(4) 
The location and boundaries of areas which are on or within 1,000 feet of such school property.
(5) 
The boundaries of all public housing facilities, public parks and public buildings.
(6) 
The location and boundaries of those areas on or within 500 feet of any public housing facility, a public park or public building.
B. 
All of the property depicted on the maps approved and adopted herein was used as:
(1) 
School property owned by a school or school board and for school purposes; and
(2) 
Property used for a public housing facility, a public park or public building.
C. 
Pursuant to the provisions of P.L. 1988, c. 44 (N.J.S.A. 2C:35-1 et seq.), a prosecutor is not precluded from introducing or relying upon any other evidence or testimony to establish a violation of the offense defined in that statute, including use of a map or diagram other than those approved and adopted pursuant to § 84-1 of this chapter. The failure of the maps approved herein to depict the location and boundaries of any property which is, in fact, used for school purposes and which is owned by or leased to any elementary or secondary school or school board; and for a public housing facility, a public park or public building, whether the absence of such depiction is the result of inadvertent omission or the result of any changes in the location and boundaries of such property which have not yet been incorporated into a revised, approved map, shall not be deemed to be an official finding and record that such property is:
(1) 
Not owned by or leased to a school or school board or is not used for school purposes; or
(2) 
Not used as a public housing facility, a public park or public building.
D. 
The Borough of Longport has fully complied with all of the requirements set forth in P.L. 1988, c. 44 (N.J.S.A. 2C:35-1 et seq.), concerning the preparation, approval and adoption of the Drug-Free Zone Maps.
