Abstract:
This data is a depiction of Coastal Planning Area boundaries used in permitting by the NJDEP. Coastal Planning Areas are those planning areas that have been adopted by the State Planning Commission and reviewed and accepted by the Department for the purposes of CAFRA. Planning area boundaries for the CAFRA area (defined at N.J.S.A.13:19-4) were clipped from the splan2 shapefile of the 2001 State Development and Redevelopment Plan (SDRP), updated March 9, 2003 (the last update affecting the CAFRA area). Attributes were modified to reflect the application of the planning areas in the Coastal Zone Management rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7E.
Purpose:
Coastal Planning Areas are areas that share a common set of conditions such as population density, infrastructure systems, level of development, or environmental sensitivity. Coastal Planning Areas are one component of regulations adopted by the NJDEP, pursuant to CAFRA. The impervious cover limits and vegetative cover percentages for proposed developments requiring a CAFRA permit are determined by the location of proposed development within a Coastal Planning Area, CAFRA center, CAFRA core, CAFRA node or non-mainland coastal center, and for the Coastal Suburban Planning Area, whether the site is located in a sewer service area. N.J.A.C. 7:7E-5B.4 and 5B.5 set forth the impervious cover limits and vegetative cover requirements for a site in the CAFRA area. There are five types of Coastal Planning Areas: Coastal Metropolitan Planning Area, Coastal Suburban Planning Area, Coastal Fringe Planning Area, Coastal Rural Planning Area, and Coastal Environmentally Sensitive Planning Area. Each Coastal Planning Area has associated with it a corresponding, pre-determined impervious cover limit and vegetative cover requirement.
Supplemental_Information:
The Coastal Zone Management rules do not distinguish between Rural Planning Areas (4a) and the Rural Environmentally Sensitive Planning Areas (4b) nor between the Environmentally Sensitive Planning Areas (5a) and the Environmentally Sensitive Barrier Island Planning Areas (5b). . This data layer includes Parks, although this designation is not used in N.J.A.C. 7:7E-5B.4 and 5B.5.

Coastal Planning Areas are complete on the date of publication. Changes to the State Plan Planning Area boundaries must be approved by the State Planning Commission through the map amendment process prescribed in the State Planning Rules (NJAC 5:85) . Planning Area map amendments approved by the State Planning Commission within the CAFRA area may be accepted, rejected, or rejected and revised by NJDEP, as prescribed in the Coastal Zone Management Rules (N.J.A.C. 7:7E).

The splan2 shapefile for the 2001 State Plan Policy Map, as amended to March 9, 2003, was used.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Through the Cross-acceptance process, a series of 1:24000 film USGS quadrangle registered maps defining the Planning Area boundaries of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment Plan was created. Locations of the boundaries were originally refined using hardcopy orthophotoquads as produced by Markhurd Corp (1986). Later boundaries were digitized using digital orthophotos at 3-meter resolution (1991), and later still, using 1995 digital orthophotos at 1-meter resolution from USGS.

Office of Smart Growth Process (Taken from Planning Areas of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan, adopted March 1, 2001 metadata) - "Through the Cross - acceptance process, a series of 1:24,000 film USGS quadrangle registered maps defining the Planning Area boundaries of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment Plan was created. Locations of the boundaries were originally refined using hardcopy orthophotoquads as produced by Markhurd Corp (1986). Later boundaries were digitized using digital orthophotos at 3 - meter resolution (1991), and latter still, using 1995 digital orthophotos at 1 - meter resolution from USGS."

NJDEP Process - Planning area boundaries for the CAFRA area were clipped from the splan2 shapefile of the 2001 State Plan Policy Map. NJDEP municipality/ county shapefile was intersected into the Coastal Planning Area shapefile. This shapefile then was recalculated to update perimeter, area and acre values. Attributes were modified to reflect the application of the planning areas in the Coastal Zone Management rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7E.
