How to Get Involved
Interested in getting involved with land use rulemaking?
Have an opinion to share or a question to ask?
Because public involvement is such an essential component to the rulemaking process, a 60-day public comment period follows the publication of each rule proposal. Land Use Management will also often hold a public hearing to provide the public with an additional opportunity to participate.
In our list of Rulemaking Events below, you will find the publication date of any current land use rule proposals with the opening and closing dates for the public comment period and information on where and how to submit your comments. You will also find the relevant information for any public hearings that have been scheduled, including dates, times, and locations.
The rule proposals are posted on the Department’s Rules and Regulations webpage.

Federal regulations require states with approved coastal management programs to submit any changes or amendments to their coastal management programs to the NOAA so that they can determine if the program, after the change, remains approvable.
In compliance with these regulations, the Department is proposing to modify the Federally approved New Jersey Coastal Management Program (NJCMP) to incorporate regulatory amendments to the Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7, adopted by the Department from June 2016 through January 2018, that address riparian zones, building standards in V zones and coastal A zones, coastal wetlands maps, public notice for maintenance dredging, and regulatory amendments made in response to issues identified through stakeholder outreach and to address other issues that have arisen since the July 6, 2015 adoption of the consolidated coastal rules.
For more information, visit the NJCMP website.
