“Our Planning Board has led a very inclusive community-wide process to encourage outside-the-box thinking, and to envision a community that enjoys and thoroughly utilizes its public spaces, provides housing options for each stage of life, and reinvigorates, and possibly redefines the downtown.”
The New Jersey Municipal Land Use Law (NJSA 40:55D-1) establishes the processes and requirements for all municipalities to prepare a master plan that outlines and directs the development regulations and general direction of the municipality every 10 years. The last master plan project in Summit was initiated in 2006. This project is expected to last one year from start to completion.
The purpose of the June 1 public workshop was to gather feedback from key stakeholders to ensure the creation of a Master Plan re-examination that most effectively guides the development of the community and its policies. Thank you to all who attended.
“To be successful, our Master Planning process needs to be a very inclusive community-wide process,” explains Summit Mayor Nora Radest. “Active participation by residents and members of the business community will ensure the success of this vital project."
