Application Stages

Applications may, at various stages, take the form of:

  • Informal Review
  • Sketch Plan Review
  • Minor Subdivision
  • Site Plan Review Waiver
  • Preliminary Subdivision Review
  • Preliminary / Final Subdivision Review
  • Final Site Plan Review
  • Change of Use
  • Variances

Considerations

In determining whether a certain use of a
particular property is in accordance with the City
Plan, many factors may come into consideration,
including:

  • setback from property lines
  • provision for adequate parking
  • impact on traffic patterns both foot and
            vehicular
  • trash receptacle placement, pickup/dropoff
            areas, etc.

Features also come under the scrutiny of other
City Departments and Divisions, such as:

  • Fire Prevention
  • Code Enforcement
  • Health

The data reviewed can be complex. City Ordinance
bears the ultimate authority. We work hard to
encourage courtesy in all exchanges with
Applicants.

To further pursue a change

City residents are encouraged to put their ideas for
change into action through participation in
government via attendance of City Council
Meetings, first and third Tuesday of each month at 7 pm

City Hall
525 High Street
Burlington NJ 08016

All interested individuals are invited to attend and
comment. Anyone in need of special
accommodations or access due to disability,
should contact the Municipal Clerk's Office, at
609-386-0200 ext. 101, prior to the meeting.

Screening Committee

You may be asked to appear before the Screening
or Advisory Committee, comprised of Land Use
Chairperson, Board Secretary, and Municipal
Engineer. Screening Committee Meetings are held
on the first Wednesday of each month at the Keegan
Center and generally commence at 3:15 pm.

Screening Committee is an informal process of the
Land Use Board to assist the public in their land
and property development Application. Screening
helps ensure requests are properly characterized
and complete with regard to requirements. Those
parties wishing to have an Application reviewed by
the Committee must submit a screening application
including as much information as possible. The
the proposal should include:

  • the exact location (which includes block and lot)
  • a survey (if a building is proposed)
  • The Committee reviews such information as:
            -adequate parking
            -days/hours of operation
            -ingress/egress
            -environmental issues
            -number of employees
            -drainage, etc.

The application should also include a contact person’s
name and daytime telephone number. The letter
should be forwarded to:

Board Secretary Nikisha Scott
City Hall Municipal Offices
