This Master Plan sets a course for land use policies for the next 10 years and beyond. This plan seeks to enhance the quality of life in Hamilton Township through a balance of land uses and thoughtful policies that promote neighborhood preservation and economic development.
This is the first comprehensive master plan the Township has completed since 1978. However, during those intervening years there has been a Master Plan update in 1989, various Reexamination Reports, individual master plan elements and special studies. Most recently the Planning Board adopted a 2008 Reexamination Report, 2009 Arts and Culture Land Use Plan Amendment and the 2009 Land Use Plan Amendment Related to the Rural Resource Conservation Zone.
With some noted exceptions, this Master Plan supersedes all previous master plan documents as it has been prepared to incorporate those master plan policies that remain relevant to the issues now facing Hamilton.
