Planning Board

Overview

The Fairfield Township Planning Board serves two primary functions:

  • To make a master plan of growth and development, natural resources, transportation, housing, etc. identifying specific geographic zones and delineating the permitted types of development in each zone consistent with New Jersey State statutes. This includes drafting, holding hearings, and making recommendations to the Township Council on the adoption of Zoning Ordinances
  • The Planning Board hears development applications for permitted uses and makes recommendations regarding the applications to ensure both state law and community standards are met.

The Board may take action at either meeting. All public matters will be discussed at these public meetings. No application will be permitted to start the presentation after 11 pm. Any applications on an agenda that are not heard will be carried over to the next scheduled meeting.
