Comprehensive Plans and State Approval Status
The following table lists the approval dates and approval status of all municipal comprehensive plans and amendments. The Approval Status for plans are either: Fully Approved, Partially Approved, Expired, or Denied. Comprehensive plan amendments are also listed along with their status of Approved or Denied.
- Fully Approved means that the plan and all amendments to the plan have current State approval.
- Partially Approved indicates that an amendment to the comprehensive plan has not been approved by the State but the remainder of the plan continues to have state approval.
- Expired means that the term of the State Approval has expired. While the State is no longer bound by the plan, it remains in full force and effect locally.
- Denied means that the State did not grant State Approval to the plan or amendment. While the State is not bound by the plan or amendment, it is in full force and effect locally.
Viewing the Comprehensive Plans
Links to the comprehensive plans are of two types. For comprehensive plans with State approval, the link will display the comprehensive plan as it was submitted to, and approved by, the State. However, the Division cannot guarantee that these are the most recent and complete version of the comprehensive plan. Readers may wish to contact the municipality for such verification.
For comprehensive plans that do not have current State approval, the Division has done its best to provide correct links to the appropriate municipal website.
