Zoning Districts

R-1   Residential 1 Family

R1_foresthill

One-Family Residential (R-1) zoning allows for the lowest density, residential development in the city. In this zone, only single-family homes up to 3-stories high can be built. Other permitted uses include parks, community residences, garages, family day care, storage sheds and private swimming pools. To maintain the existing residential character of these places, uses such as assisted living and nursing home facilities, community centers and gardens, ground-floor retail, child care centers, offices, places of worship, and urban farms are not permitted. Schools are permitted only with conditions.

R-1 zoning is generally applied in areas of neighborhoods with existing larger, single-family homes such Forest Hill, large sections of Vailsburg and portions of Weequahic and Upper Clinton Hill. These areas are generally characterized by detached homes on larger yards and feel more suburban than the denser residential areas of most of Newark.

R-2   Residential 1–2 Family

R2_37 Underwood St

One-to-Two Family Residential (R-2) zoning allows for slightly denser residential development than in One-Family Residential (R-1) zoning, permitting single- and two-family homes up to three stories high. Other permitted uses include parks, community residences, garages, day care, storage sheds, private swimming pools, and home gardening. Areas zoned R-2 encourage strong residential character and do not permit such uses as assisted living and nursing home facilities, community centers, ground floor retail, office and service, and urban farms. Child care centers, places of worship, and schools are permitted only with conditions.

R-2 zoning is generally applied in areas of neighborhoods with a mix of single- and two-family homes such as those found in Upper Roseville, much of Upper Clinton Hill and sections of Vailsburg, Weequahic, Forest Hill, North Broadway/Woodside and Mount Pleasant. These areas are generally characterized by both detached and semi-detached, duplex homes that sit on smaller yards, giving them a more suburban feel.

R-3   Residential 1–3 Family & Town House

R3_SummerandVerona

One- to Three-Family and Town House Residential (R-3) zoning allows for denser, residential development than in One- and Two-Family Residential (R-2) zoning, permitting single-, two- and three-family homes, as well as townhomes, up to three stories high. Other permitted uses include parks, community residences, garages, and day care. Areas zoned R-3 encourage strong residential character and do not permit such uses as assisted living and nursing home facilities, ground floor retail, office and service. Child care centers, community centers, places of worship, and schools are permitted only with conditions.

R-3 zoning is generally applied in areas of neighborhoods with a mix of single-, two- and three-family homes, as well as townhomes, such as those found in Lower Roseville, Lower Broadway, Fairmount and Lower Clinton Hill, as well as sections of North Broadway/Woodside, Mount Pleasant, the Ironbound, and a small section of Weequahic. These areas are generally characterized by bulkier detached homes and rows of townhomes on smaller yards, giving them a semi-urban feel.

R-4   Residential Low-Rise Multifamily

R-4 IB

Low-rise Multifamily Residential (R-4) zoning allows for denser, residential development than in One-to-Three-Family and Town House Residential (R-3) zoning, permitting single-, two- and three-family homes and townhomes up to three stories high as well as low-rise multi-family housing up to four stories high. Other permitted uses include parks, community residences, garages, ground floor retail, office or services, and day care. Areas zoned R-4 encourage residential character and do not permit some forms of commercial uses. Neighborhood services such as assisted living facilities, nursing homes, child care centers, community centers, places of worship, and schools are permitted only with conditions.

R-4 zoning is generally applied in areas of neighborhoods with a mix of single-, two-, three-family homes and townhomes, but with a predominance of low-rise, multi-family homes, such as those found in large sections of Belmont, the residential sections of University Heights and portions of most Newark neighborhoods, including Upper and Lower Clinton Hill and the Ironbound. These areas are generally characterized by more densely packed homes and multifamily buildings that are four stories or less on very little yard space, giving them a more urban, residential feel.

R-5   Residential Mid-Rise Multifamily

R-5

Mid-Rise Multifamily Residential (R-5) zoning allows for dense, residential development, permitting low- and mid-rise multi-family housing up to eight stories high. Other permitted uses include parks, community residences, garages, ground floor retail, offices or services, and day care. Areas zoned R-5 encourage residential character and do not permit some types of commercial or retail uses. Neighborhood services such as assisted living facilities, nursing homes, child care centers, community centers, places of worship, and primary and secondary schools are permitted only with conditions, as are urban farms, home professional offices, portable storage units, private sports courts and solar and wind energy systems.

R-5 zoning is generally applied in areas of neighborhoods with a mix of both low- and mid-rise, multi-family buildings, such as those found in pockets of many Newark neighborhoods including Upper and Lower Roseville and the Ironbound. These areas are generally characterized by dense complexes of residential buildings up to eight stories in height on small, shared grounds, giving them a strong urban, residential feel.

C-1   Neighborhood Commercial

C-1_vailsburg

Neighborhood Commercial (C-1) zoning allows for small-scale, commercial development that is residential in character and caters to local, everyday retail needs of nearby residents. Permitted development in C-1 zones includes ground-floor commercial with commercial or residential above in buildings up to four stories high. To preserve neighborhood character, some types of commercial or retail are not permitted.

C-1 zoning is generally applied in small neighborhood-serving commercial areas of moderate-density, residential neighborhoods, including Upper Roseville, Forest Hill, North Broadway/Woodside, Vailsburg, University Heights, Upper Clinton Hill, Lower Clinton Hill, and Weequahic. These areas are generally characterized by low- to mid-rise multi-family buildings giving them an urban, residential feel.

C-2   Community Commercial

C2_IB

Community Commercial (C-2) zoning allows for slightly more moderate-scale and dense commercial development than in Neighborhood Commercial (C-1) zoning for ground-floor commercial with commercial or residential above in buildings up to five stories high. New development must be at least three stories high. C-2 zones are typically the heart of a neighborhood’s central commercial district. There are more permitted uses in C-2 zones than in C-1.

C-2 zoning is generally applied in existing community commercial centers, such as Bloomfield Avenue as it passes through Upper Roseville, Forest Hill and Lower Broadway; Orange Street in Lower Roseville; Central Avenue in Fairmount; South Orange Avenue as it passes through Vailsburg, Fairmount, and West Side; Ferry Street in the Ironbound; and number of smaller sections of nearly all of Newark’s neighborhoods. Surrounded by a mix of low- mid-rise residential buildings and often along vibrant streets, these areas are typically a community’s center of vibrancy.

C-3   Regional Commercial

EXMOVI 1 YASUKAWA

Regional Commercial (C-3) zoning allows for larger-scale commercial development with a greater variety of uses than that of Neighborhood Commercial (C-1) or Community Commercial (C-2) and is intended to serve more than the neighborhood or community in which it is found. C-3 zoning allows for ground-floor commercial with commercial or residential above in buildings up to eight stories high as well as large, detached commercial buildings up to eight stories high.

C-3 zoning is generally applied on the edges of neighborhoods, outside of residential areas and along primary transportation corridors, such as sections of Broadway as it passes through North Broadway/Woodside and Mount Pleasant; along Irvington Avenue on the southwestern edge of Vailsburg; in Fairmount along portions of West Market Street and Bergen Street; Springfield Avenue as it passes through University Heights and Belmont; and sections of Lincoln Park, the Ironbound, Upper Clinton Hill, Lower Clinton Hill and Dayton.

MX-1   Mixed-Use 1 Residential & Commercial

MX-1

Mixed Use 1: Residential & Commercial (MX-1) zoning allows for a blend of residential and commercial uses within the same building or district, fostering communities with diverse but integrated uses. These are the kinds of places where residents live over shops that offer everyday services, places to work, shop and play. MX-1 zoning allows for moderately dense residential development, permitting single-, two- and three-family homes and town homes up to three stories high, as well as low-rise, multi-family housing up to four stories high. Commercial development in MX-1 zones allows for ground-floor commercial with commercial or residential above.

MX-1 zoning is applied in areas where there is already a well-integrated mix of residential and commercial uses, such as along Verona Avenue in North Broadway/Woodside; along Broadway in Mount Pleasant; along Morris and Central Avenues in University Heights; along Broad Street in Lincoln Park and throughout large sections of the Ironbound.

MX-2   Mixed-Use 2 Residential, Commercial, Industrial

MX-2

Mixed Use 2: Residential, Commercial, Industrial (MX-2) zoning allows for a blend of residential, commercial, and appropriate industrial uses within the same building or district, fostering flexible, working communities with integrated and innovative uses. These are the kinds of places where homes and businesses mix with industry in creative and productive ways. MX-2 zoning allows for moderately dense residential development, permitting single-, two- and three-family homes and town homes up to three stories high as well as low-rise multi-family housing up to four stories high. Commercial development in MX-2 zones allows for some ground-floor commercial with commercial or residential above. MX-2 also allows for industrial development, encouraging most industrial uses permitted in the I-1 District.

MX-2 zoning is applied in areas where there is already a well-integrated mix of residential, commercial and industrial uses, such as along Verona Avenue in Forest Hill; along Broad Street in Lower Broadway; around Central Avenue in University Heights; in small sections of Upper Clinton Hill; along the many of the edges of the Ironbound; and along Route 27 in Dayton.

I-1   Light Industrial

I-1

Light Industrial (I-1) zoning allows for industrial development of buildings up to eight stories high or 100 feet and permits a range of uses that are generally more compatible with surrounding neighborhoods than those of heavy industry.

Because it generally allows for uses that are more compatible with surrounding neighborhoods, I-1 zoning is typically applied on the edge of neighborhoods and sometimes as a buffer with more heavy industrial uses. I-1 zoning is applied in such places as along Oraton Street in North Broadway/Woodside; along 3rd Street in Upper Roseville; along N 13th Street in Lower Roseville; along Routes 1 & 9 in the Ironbound; between W Runyon Street and Peddie Street in Lower Clinton Hill; and in the Industrial District along much of the border with Lower Clinton Hill, as well as small pockets of other Newark neighborhoods.

I-2   Medium Industrial

mimeo_rwedit2

Medium Industrial (I-2) zoning allows for industrial development of buildings up to six stories high or 100 feet and permits a range of uses that are generally less compatible with nearby residential neighborhoods than those of Light Industrial (I-1) zoning.

Because it allows for a range of uses that are less compatible with residential neighborhoods, I-2 zoning is typically applied in industrial districts of residential neighborhoods or adjacent to roads, waterways and lighter industrial areas that can serve as a buffer. I-2 zoning is applied in areas of Newark neighborhoods such as along McCarter Highway and the Passaic River waterfront in North Broadway/Woodside; around S 15th Street in Fairmount; north of Raymond Boulevard in the Ironbound; and in portions of the Newark Industrial District that border Lower Clinton Hill and the Ironbound.

I-3   Heavy Industrial

Heavy Industrial (I-3) zoning allows for industrial development of buildings up to ten stories high and permits specific uses that are generally incompatible with residential neighborhoods and thus typically not allowing residential uses.

Because it allows for uses that are incompatible with and even harmful to residents, I-3 zoning is confined to – and comprises much of – the Newark Industrial District and has very low proximity to any residential neighborhood.

PORT   Port

AERIALS6 CONLONPort (PORT) zoning for port-related activities in and around the Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal. PORT zoning allows for uses related to the port and services that support it.

EWR & EWR-S   Airport & Airport Support

CIMG8329

Airport (EWR) and Airport Support (EWR-S) zoning are for Newark Liberty International Airport and the supporting area around it. EWR/EWR-S zoning allows for industrial development related to the airport and the services that support it. In these areas, industrial buildings be can up to ten stories high and detached commercial buildings up to eight stories high.

Because it allows for specific uses related to Newark Liberty International Airport, EWR/EWR-S zoning is applied only in the Port District and a portion of the Newark Industrial District.

RDV/SD   Redevelopment Zone/ Special District

The State of New Jersey Local Housing and Redevelopment Law allows municipalities to declare Areas in Needs of Redevelopment/Rehabilitation (AINRs). Under this law, cities can create redevelopment and rehabilitation plans that supersede general zoning. Areas marked in gray on the zoning maps fall under the jurisdiction of such plans. On the Newark Zoning Maps, specific redevelopment plans are keyed by numbers in red circles.

To find and download the redevelopment plan that governs land use and development regulations for one of these areas,click on this link or contact the Newark City Clerk’s Office at (973) 733-3669.
