Who makes decisions about what gets built in Newark?
What voice do residents and neighbors have in the process?
You are invited to attend a 2-hour information sessions offered by the Newark Planning Office introducing the draft Newark Zoning & Land Use Regulations (NZLUR), the first comprehensive rewrite of these regulations in Newark in over 50 years.
Two sessions of the same workshop
Wednesday, January 15, 6–8 pm
Thursday, January 23, 6–8 pm
Newark City Hall
920 Broad Street, First Floor Rotunda
RSVP requested to Ms. Roberts at (973) 733-3917 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’ve wondered how decisions are made about what gets built in Newark, this session will begin to answer your questions and prepare you to participate and represent your neighborhood in the discussion as the NZLUR is refined and eventually presented to the Central Planning Board and Municipal Council for adoption into law.
The NZLUR set the rules for what may be built in Newark and where, serving as the “operating system” for the city’s development. While numerous smaller changes have been made to the regulations since the last comprehensive revision in 1966, much of the code has grown out of date and out of touch with the city and its development.
The current draft of the NZLUR aims to modernize and simplify the regulations while ensuring that the document better equips citizens of Newark to participate in and build the city Newarkers want.
The draft NZLUR may be downloaded here or examined at the main library and branches of the Newark Public Library.
