What will Maplewood look like in 20 years?
Every 6 years NJ state law (Municipal Land Use Law/MLUL) requires municipalities to re-examine their Master Plan. As defined by the MLUL:
“Master plan” means a composite of one or more written or graphic proposals for the development of the municipality as set forth in and adopted pursuant to section 19 of P.L.1975, c.291 (C.40:55D-28). Read the NJ MLULL document here.
Maplewood has a mostly built up environment with room for re-use and redevelopment and little room for new development.
The Planning Board will be working on incorporating sustainable building practices into the Master Plan and the possible re-use redevelopment of municipal buildings and private property.
To learn more about the Powers of the Planning Board read the MLUL: 40:55D-25. Powers of planning board section.
