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.


If you have any questions about any of the land use rules, you can send them to the Office of Policy and Coastal Management at OPI@dep.nj.govAlso, check out our Rules FAQs page.

The Coastal Zone Enhancement Program under Section 309 of the Coastal Zone Management Act encourages State and Territorial Coastal Management Programs to strengthen and improve their federally approved program in one or more of the nine enhancement areas.  These areas are wetlands,  coastal hazards, public access, marine debris, cumulative and secondary impacts, special area management plans, ocean and Great Lakes resources, energy and government facility siting, and aquaculture.


On October 1, 2019, the New Jersey Coastal Management Program (NJCMP) began the assessment and strategy process for the 2021-2025 Section 309  enhancement cycle. Stakeholder and public involvement in the development of this document is an integral component of this process.  Accordingly, the NJCMP is seeking your input to help inform the development of the assessment and strategy.  Please complete this survey regarding your thoughts on the NJCMP and the nine enhancement areas by Friday, November 8, 2019.


The survey can be found here:
