Planning Board Information

The Ewing Planning Board is an advisory board to Township Council and is composed of nine regular and two alternate volunteer members.   These include the Mayor, a member of Council, a member of the Environmental Commission, six other citizens and two alternates.


The Planning Board selects the following officers from among its regular members: a Chairman, a Vice Chairman, and a Secretary (who may or may not be a member of the Board or an employee of the Township). Expenditures include the appointment of a PB attorney and experts and staff as deemed necessary, not to exceed amounts appropriated in the annual municipal budget.


The Planning Board is responsible for preparing the Township’s Master Plan, subdivisions, site plan review and residential variances in compliance with requirements of the New Jersey Municipal Land Use Law.  They also make recommendations to Council regarding changes to the zoning ordinances, official map and capital improvement projects planned within the Township.
The recommendations and decisions of the board are subject to the review and approval of Township Council.
