Re-Examination Plan


Hudson County Master Plan Re-Examination Plan

The project involved a comprehensive reexamination of the Hudson County Master Plan that went far beyond the statutory requirements and examined climate change and its effect on Hudson County communities. The Plan concluded that only a holistic approach to development patterns, transportation system investments and economic development policies can improve the local environment and positively affect global conditions. This Plan also incorporates the policy implications in the N.J. Global Warming Response Act and the endorsement of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement by Hudson County Freeholders. Recommendations contained in the Master Plan served as the basis for amending the County Subdivision and Site Plan Review Ordinances. The Plan also looked at various development components through a different lens, such as thinking of the urban forest as an important component of the infrastructure network, which is a more holistic approach towards development and redevelopment in the County.
