Overview

The Planning Board is responsible for the enforcement of the Hasbrouck Heights's regulations that set standards for business and residential zones. These standards govern permitted uses, signs, structure/building sizes, locations and setback requirements.

Hasbrouck Heights zoning regulations and the NJ Uniform Construction Code are the basis of the Borough's Code Enforcement Bureau. A zoning review ensures that there are no conflicts with the zoning ordinances, before a construction permit is issued or any proposed change of use or new use is allowed. Proposed projects that do not comply are referred to the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

New projects in permitted zones are subject to review by the Planning Board before actual construction begins. This local review excludes compliance to required county, state and federal regulations.



Planning Board

The Planning Board considers applications for site plan review and provides variances as to permitted uses and applications for subdivisions. The Planning Board makes determinations as to the Adoption of the Master Plan. The Planning Board makes recommendations to the Mayor and Council with regard to zoning ordinances and amendments. The Planning Board participates in preparation and review of programs or plans required by state or federal law or referred by the Mayor and Council.

Each Planning Board meeting has a specific agenda of the applications pending. During a hearing for an application the public has an opportunity to speak regarding that specific application only. The agendas are posted at Borough Hall a few days before each meeting. Contact the Planning Board Secretary for information regarding agendas.

The Borough of Hasbrouck Heights Planning Board meets once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the Borough Hall, 320 Boulevard. The Borough of Hasbrouck Heights Planning Board requires Seventeen (17) completed sets of the application be provided to the Board Secretary in the Construction Department Office no less than thirty (30) days prior to the date set for hearing.
