The Community Builders & Remodelers Association of NJ recently published an article authored by Doug Henshaw and Steve Gouin (not pictured), entitled It's About Time! (of Application). The article reports on significant changes to the state’s Municipal Land Use Law that are set to take effect in less than one week. Effective May 5, 2011, a new “Time of Application” law mandates that municipal review of a development application must be governed by regulations in effect on the date the application is filed. This new provision reverses the current legal doctrine and presents a straightforward and sensible approach to both development and municipal planning – it should also spark economic growth. The article reports on the details of the new provision and its potential impacts on New Jersey’s developers, investors, and business owners.
