New Jersey Land-Use Planning Techniques and Legislation. Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletin AE-338.
Schneider, Lee D.
In response to recent urban to rural migration trends and the development of rather piecemeal land use policies and practices by local, state, and Federal decision makers, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has established a regional project (NE-78) and this report reflects the first of three major project objectives (to describe and appraise selected local, state, and Federal land-use and natural resource planning policies and the respective means of policy implementation for use in rural areas). Divided into two sections, the first section of this report describes seven land-use planning techniques (comprehensive planning, zoning, subdivision, capital programming, the official map, codes, and private restrictions) and includes abstracts of New Jersey policy and legislation associated with each. The second section presents results of the New Jersey Municipal Planning Control Survey--a survey designed to determine how many New Jersey municipalities have adopted five selected planning controls (planning boards, master plans, zoning ordinances, subdivision ordinances, and building codes). Presented in tabular form, the survey results indicate that of the 567 New Jersey municipalities: 69.8 percent have master plans; 94.2 percent have planning boards; 95.4 percent have zoning ordinances; 82.5 percent have subdivision ordinances; and 97.2 percent have building codes.
