New Jersey Coastal Zone Management Program
The New Jersey Coastal Management Program was approved by NOAA in 1978 and is administered by its lead agency, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, in partnership with the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, as the lead planning agency for the Hackensack Meadowlands District. The coastal management program is based on three major laws: the Coastal Area Facility Review Act, the Wetlands Act of 1970, and the Waterfront Development Law.
New Jersey’s coastal zone encompasses approximately 1,800 miles of tidal coastline and ranges in width from 100 feet to 24 miles inland.
