About the New Jersey State Plan

The State Plan Update Map Viewer provides a window into how the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan has helped to shape New Jersey's growth since its 1985 inception and the 2001 update. The Viewer is powered by Rowan University's NJ MAP project. Users can explore the patterns of development and open space and the geography of the state's diverse communities and natural resources. This map viewer aims to inform all stakeholders in the update process in order to facilitate a future state plan that best enables a sustainable future.

The Goals of the SDRP are:
  • Revitalize the State’s Cities and Towns
  • Conserve the State’s Natural Resources and Systems
  • Promote Beneficial Economic Growth, Development, and Renewal for all Residents of NJ
  • Protect the Environment, Prevent and Clean Up Pollution
  • Provide Adequate Public Facilities and Services at a Reasonable Cost
  • Provide Adequate Housing at a Reasonable Cost
  • Preserve and Enhance Areas with Historic, Cultural, Scenic, Open Space, and Recreational Value
  • Address the Negative Impacts of Global Climate Change
  • Prevent the Concentration of Adverse Environmental Impacts in Overburdened Communities
