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