Eastern Environmental Law Center produced this FAQ in coordination with Clean Water Action to help community members understand some of the legal requirements for proposed warehouses in New Jersey. Building your understanding of the process will help you to identify opportunities to raise objections at the right time and place. This FAQ is not a comprehensive review of all possible laws that could apply to a proposed warehouse development, and nothing in it should be taken as legal advice.
Included in this fact sheet:
- What is the local zoning/planning board’s role with warehouse approvals?
- What regional laws might apply to a warehouse proposal?
- What state laws might apply to a warehouse proposal?
- Who should community members engage to oppose a proposed warehouse?
