Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the boundaries of New Jersey's Smart Growth Areas. This metadata mainly describes the elements derived from elements of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan mapping, along with mapping from the NJ Pinelands Commission, and the Meadowlands Commission. See the metadata for the Pinelands Management Areas or the Meadowlands for specific information concerning their geographic areas.
Purpose:
The Smart Growth Areas file was created to help implement the goals of the New Jersey State Plan. As well, a number of state agencies use Smart Growth Areas as tools to implement certain programs. Below is a list of some of the programs that cite Smart Growth Area status as one of their criteria. This list is continuously updated as new programs choose to use Smart Growth Areas in their decision-making process. BPU- Energy Star & Smart Start Programs, BPU- Utility Main Extension Regulations, EDA- Business Employment Incentive Program, HMFA- Loan and Subsidy programs, Treasury- Property Management Space Approval Request, Treasury- Property Management Smart Growth Site Location Unit.

Process_Description:
The smart growth mapping has been codified by reference in various legislation. It was originaly created as a exercise in creating a smart growth map for internal Department of Community Affairs, Office of Smart Growth use. Through varous means, the mapping became known outside of the office and became something that was used for spatial reference in some legislation. The map uses elements of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Map, elements of the Meadowlands land use parcel mapping and elements of the Pinelands Commission Management Area mapping.

An site is considered a smart growth area if it meets the following criteria: NJ state plan metropolitan and suburban planning areas or NJ State plan designated centers or NJ pinelands regional growth areas, towns and villages or Smart growth areas as designated by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission
