Amendments to DEP Rules on Coastal Development

On June 7, 2010 the Division of Land Use Regulation of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection adopted amendments to the Coastal Zone Management Rules. The amendments foster and promote development in the Coastal Zone. The amendments impact the Bay Island Rule by exempting from the restrictive requirements of that rule Bader Field (the now closed Atlantic City Municipal Airport) in order to allow intense resort development; the Atlantic City Rule to modify the list of protected streets ends in the City of Atlantic City by adding additional street ends and allowing the closure of other streets based upon recent proposed commercial and casino development; and the Traffic Rule to modify the parking requirements for residential development to permit one parking space per unit for those units 650 square feet or smaller within one-half mile of an oceanfront beach or dune. If a unit is larger than 650 square feet, then two parking spaces per unit are required. These amendments facilitate coastal zone development demonstrating flexibility while attempting to provide adequate parking for residential development in crowded coastal areas.
