Petition Closed

New Jersey Assembly Bill No. 2586 (Senate Bill No. 1534) would exempt private colleges and universities from any kind of municipal land use oversight and from requirements for compliance with local zoning codes under the Municipal Land Use Law, eliminate the kind of careful review that municipal planning boards and boards of zoning adjustment conduct when evaluating land use applications, and cause more, rather than less, conflict between private universities and the municipalities in which they are located.

The Senate version of this bill passed 26-8-6 on June 28, 2012.  The Assembly Bill No. 2586 has been referred to the Assembly Higher Education Committee.  Along with signing this petition, you can contact members of this committee below:
