NAIOP NJ Seeks Directive for Virtual Planning & Zoning Board Meetings

NAIOP NJ WeekEnder Brief

March 27, 2020

Meryl Gonchar, Sills Cummis Land Use Practice Group Co-Chair and NAIOP NJ Trustee, “is representing NAIOP in crafting uniform procedures to be implemented for virtual planning and zoning board meetings, with the goal of having the Murphy Administration issue an emergency Executive Order mandating the procedures so that development can continue. NAIOP and a broad coalition of businesses have requested that DEP Commissioner Catherine McCabe issue an Administrative Order (pursuant to section 6 of Executive Order No. 103 by Governor Murphy to “waive, suspend, or modify any existing rule, where the enforcement of which would be detrimental to the public welfare during this emergency”) to alleviate many of the requirements the business community has in meeting various permits, compliance, and regulatory deadlines.” – as seen in the NAIOP NJ WeekEnder Brief, March 27, 2020
