§ 23-6 Map as evidence; additional provisions.

The following additional matters are hereby determined, declared, recited and stated:
A. 
It is understood that the map approved and adopted pursuant to § 23-1 of this chapter was prepared and is intended to be used as evidence in prosecutions arising under the criminal laws of this state and that, pursuant to state law, such map 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) 
That 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 location of all school crossings in the Borough of Lavallette.
B. 
All of the property depicted on the map approved and adopted herein as school property was owned by a school or school board and was being used for school purposes as of July 9, 1987, that being the effective date of L. 1987. c. 101 (N.J.S.A. 2C:35-7).
C. 
Pursuant to the provisions of L. 1988, c. 44 (N.J.S.A. 2C:35-7), a prosecutor is not precluded from introducing or relying upon any other evidence of testimony to establish a violation of the offense defined in that statute, including use of a map or diagram other than the one approved and adopted pursuant to § 23-1 of this chapter. The failure of the map 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, 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 not owned by or leased to a school or school board or that such property is not used for school purposes.
D. 
All requirements set forth in L. 1988, c. 44 (N.J.S.A. 2C:35-7) concerning the preparation, approval and adoption of a Drug-Free School Zone Map have been complied with.

§ 23-7 Official finding and record as to statute.

The drug-free school zone and map as approved and adopted under this chapter shall constitute an official finding and record for the purpose of P.L. 1999, c. 185.
