Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a Master Plan?
A Master Plan provides a guide for the future development of a community. It serves as a
comprehensive approach to planning issues and considers many factors impacting a community’s economic development needs.
The Master Plan gives the community the legalbasis for control over future development, as well as land use planning policy and zoning changes. Most changes are implemented in the form of zoning amendments and land development ordinances.
- Why is the Township doing a new Master Plan?
The last time the Township completed a new Master Plan was nearly 25 years ago, in 1995. The way people live, travel, and do business has changed tremendously since then. We need a new planning document to guide land use policies, development, and infrastructure improvements to respond to our current and future needs.
- What is covered by the new Master Plan?
The new Master Plan will include the following elements: Goals and Objectives, Land Use, Circulation, Economic Development, Community Facilities, Parks and Open Space, Utilities, Sustainability, Historic Preservation, and Recycling.
In addition to the elements of the Master Plan, we are hosting a number of community engagement events where residents, business owners and other interested people have the opportunity to participate in the planning process.
- When will the report be completed?
It is expected the Master Plan will be adopted by the Planning Board by the end of 2019.
- How can I participate?
You can provide valuable insight into the Master Plan by completing the survey questions on this webpage and participating at upcoming community workshop. And help spread the word by sharing on social media and telling your friends and family about what we are doing!
