Borough Planning Board

COVID-19 Notice

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming Planning Board meetings will be held electronically using the Zoom video platform.

The Hopewell Borough Planning board meets on the first Wednesday of each month and acts as a combined land use board, serving both as the town’s zoning board of adjustment and exercises its planning functions. In addition to hearing subdivision and land use applications, the board is tasked with maintaining the municipality’s master plan and acts on recommendations from the historic preservation commission. Links to frequently used forms, minutes and agenda will be available on this page in the coming days as the website is restored.  Please contact the Planning Board secretary in the interim if you are in need of copies.
