Cluster Development Bill Sails through the Assembly
April 30th, 2013 by Chris Sturm
Awaits Senate vote; scheduled for May 30, 2013.
The New Jersey Assembly overwhelmingly approved the Cluster Development Bill, 74-0-1, on Monday, April 29. The bill moves on to the full Senate, where it is scheduled for a vote on May 30.
Preserving open space and farmlands, as well as protecting historic sites are goals that everyone shares,” said prime sponsor Asm. Rob Clifton, R-12, in a recent statement. “This measure clarifies a town’s developmental goals as it provides a roadmap that puts landowners, developers and a town on a path to smart growth.”
New Jersey Future has worked with a powerful, diverse coalition to craft the cluster development bill, which has been introduced as A3761 and S2608. Special recognition goes to bipartisan sponsors Asms. Green (D-22), Clifton (R-12) and Handlin (R-13) and Sens. Van Drew (D-1) and Oroho (R-24).
