The Planning Board is established pursuant to N.J.S.A. 50:55D-25. The areas of responsibility for the Board include developing and adopting a Master Plan for the physical development of the Township. It also administers state and local land use laws. The Planning Board also reviews and approves conditional use and planned development applications.

The Board is made up of nine regular members (with terms varying from one to four years). The Class I member is traditionally the Mayor (the Mayor can appointment his/her replacement) and the Class III member is another member of the Township Committee. The Class III is appointed by resolution of the Township Committee. The Mayor appoints all other members.

Unless otherwise noticed, the Planning Board meets in the Meeting Room, Town Hall, at 7:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month unless otherwise noted.
