Hard copies of the adopted Master Plan are being distributed to municipalities in accordance with the County Planning Act (N.J.S.A 40:27-1 et seq.).  Hard copies will also be made available for public viewing at Monmouth County libraries and the Monmouth County Division of Planning Office located at 1 East Main Street, Freehold, NJ. 

Attached to this e-mail is a Master Plan Infographic and a Master Plan Overview summary sheet intended to provide stakeholders quick and engaging insight into some of the Master Plan’s most interesting highlights. Please feel free to disseminate this information to your constituents and to anyone else you believe is interested in bringing about positive change in their community.

On behalf of the Division of Planning and Planning Board, I want to thank everyone who dedicated their valuable time, knowledge, creativity, and passion to this project.  For the next 10-years, the Monmouth County Master Plan will serve the county and our planning partners as the principle guiding document for land use coordination and offers concurrence on intended community outcomes.
