People looking at mapPlanSmart NJ designed the REGIONAL FORUM to devise a growth management plan for the region. Leaders in the community from both the public and private sector came to consensus on a “vision” for managing growth in this rapidly developing region. The results of the regional forum strongly influenced both state and local policy. Two of the forum recommendations were enacted into law – the Highway Access Management Act (1989) and the Transportation Development District Act (1990).
