Planning Board Agendas
The Planning Board acts as a Planning Commission and also has the ability to grant Variances in acting capacity as the Board of Adjustments.
The Manasquan Planning Board meets
twice a month in the Council Chambers. The meetings
usually are the first and third Tuesday of the
month and regular meetings begin at 7pm and special meetings begin at 4pm. Any questions can be
forwarded to (732) 223-0544, extension 245. The
Planning Board is responsible for the enforcement
of the Manasquan regulations that set standards for
business and residential zones. These standards govern
permitted uses, signs, structure/building sizes,
locations and setback requirements. A Zoning review
ensures that there are no conflicts with the
Zoning ordinances, before a construction permit is
issued or any proposed change of use or new use is
allowed. Proposed projects that do not comply are
referred to the Planning Board.
The Planning Board considers applications
for site plan review and provides variances as to
permitted uses and applications for subdivisions.
The Planning Board makes determinations as to the
Adoption of the Master Plan. The Board makes recommendations
to the Mayor and Council with regard
to zoning ordinances and amendments. Each
Planning Board meeting has a specific agenda of the
applications pending. During a hearing for an application
the public has an opportunity to speak regarding
that specific application only. The agendas
are posted at Borough Hall a few days prior to each
meeting. The Secretary can be contacted regarding agendas.
