This work is a practical guide through the intricacies of municipal land use law, written by an acknowledged expert. It covers: The structure and organization of municipal boards; their powers; the requirements for variance, site plan, subdivision and other applications made before them; the process of hearing, decision and appeal; promulgation of zoning ordinances and challenges to such ordinances; and many other critical issues, such as potential liability of boards and board members. It also contains the complete text of The Municipal Land Use Law (N.J.S. 40:55D-1 et seq.), a draft of model rules for a zoning board of adjustment, model procedural rules for a planning board, a sample zoning board of adjustment resolution, a sample court judgment and other forms. Complete in a single volume, portable paperback format, this book provides the guidance long needed by attorneys representing municipal boards as well as those representing applicants and is an invaluable reference work for board members and applicants themselves.
