Newark Master Plan
To register to vote, you must be a United States citizen who, by the date of the next election, will be at least 18 years old and have been a resident of New Jersey and the county in which you intend to vote for at least 30 days.
You must consult with a Central Planning staff member to determine whether or not a site plan application is required. If three or more units are proposed, a major site plan application will need to be filed. The application and instructions can be obtained from Central Planning, Room 112 City Hall. Once the appropriate forms have been completed and plans submitted, the application will be scheduled for a hearing before the Central Planning Board for review and approval or denial.
You must file for construction permits in the UCC Building Division. These permits will eventually be forwarded to Zoning and Central Planning for review for conformity with regulations. Once Zoning/Central Planning stamp their approvals, the permit applications are returned to the Building Division for further processing.
You must first contact the Zoning office to see if the use is permitted. If the use is permitted, you must then consult with a Central Planning staff member to determine whether or not a site plan application is required. The application and instructions can be obtained from Central Planning, Room 112 in City Hall, located at 920 Broad Street. Once the appropriate forms have been completed and plans submitted, the application will be scheduled for a hearing before the Central Planning Board for review and approval or denial. If the use is not permitted by Zoning, then a formal use variance review will be required by the Board of Adjustment.
You must consult with a Central Planning staff person to determine whether or not the proposed renovation/rehabilitation is substantial enough to require site plan review, which will depend upon the size of the building space to be renovated.
You must consult with a Central Planning staff person to review a copy of the survey, which must show the before and after subdivision to determine planning conformity. After this initial review, you will be given a subdivision application to complete for Board review.
The first step is to consult with the Zoning Office to determine if your desired use is permitted. If your desired use is permitted, you must then consult with Central Planning and complete relevant applications for a site plan review. If your desired use is not permitted, you may complete an application for a use variance review.
No. Subdivision review and approval by the Central Planning Board is required prior to the sale of any portion of land. Subdivision applications are available in Room 112 of City Hall, located at 920 Broad Street.
