CHESTER, NEW JERSEY - It's not what you're thinking. Today, the New Jersey Highland's Council released a revision to the Regional Master Plan (RMP) that will allow continued development with minimal regulation for some areas of the 860,000-acre region that includes much of Morris County.
There are 88 municipalities and portions of seven counties in the Highlands Region. For Morris County, all or part of Parsippany, Morristown, Morris Township, Morris Plains, Hanover, Boonton, Montvale and Denville are included in the revised draft of the new Land Use Capability Map Series. This series includes an updated regional zone map, as well as maps that outline water and wastewater capabilities for the Highlands Region.
“These maps are a tool for more effective local and regional planning because they allow us to address land capability and capacity throughout the Highlands and see how one decision can affect the entire area.” states John Weingart, Chairman of the Highlands Council.
