Planning (Long Range)

The Town’s Long Range Planning Division assists with the implementation of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, codes, programs and policies related to planning over a relatively longer time-frame. These areas include:

  • Land Use
  • Zoning
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation
  • Natural Resources
  • Groundwater
  • Surface Waters
  • Wetlands
  • Pine Barrens
  • Recreation
  • Trails
  • Preservation of Open Space, Farmland, and Historic Resources

The Long Range Planning Division also takes the lead review role of Planned Development District, Change of Zone and Moratorium Exemption applications.

Essential to all of these efforts over the long term is the implementation of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, which is amended to reflect changing conditions and is used as the guiding document for town policies, programs and regulations. This is accomplished with a particular regard to the Central Pine Barrens Plan, groundwater protection, and farmland preservation.
