  • Requires municipal land use plan element of master plan to address smart growth, storm resiliency, and environmental sustainability issues.
In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires that the land use element of a municipal master plan include a statement of strategy concerning: smart growth, including consideration of potential locations for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations; storm resiliency with respect to energy supply, flood-prone areas, and environmental infrastructure; and environmental sustainability. These issues are of special importance to New Jersey, as the State is among the most ecologically diverse and densely populated states in the country. The land use element of the municipal master plan is adopted by local boards intimately involved with local land use issues. These boards are uniquely situated to consider and adopt a local strategy designed to address these issues in a practical and effective manner.
