Comprehensive Plan

The Cape May County Planning Board's (and Planning Department's) responsibility for creating and implementing a county-wide comprehensive plan is derived from the County Planning Enabling Act of 1935 (C.40:27). This act empowers Counties with the ability to establish planning boards and directs those boards to "...make and adopt a master plan for the physical development of the county."   For a copy of the 2005 Comprehensive Plan, CLICK HERE

The Cape May County Planning Department is currently working to update the Cape May County Comprehensive Plan.  Please feel free to explore the draft documents and maps, which are all works in progress.  A Professional Planning firm (to be selected through a competitive contracting process) will lead the plan development, with a draft document anticipated in late Spring, 2021.  There will be opportunities for public involvement and engagement throughout the plan development.  Questions or comments on the Comprehensive Plan should be directed to Leslie Gimeno, PP, AICP, Planning Director at 609-465-6875 or via email leslie.gimeno@co.cape-may.nj.us
