The Maywood Planning Board is a consolidated board performing the functions of both a
Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment in accordance with the provisions of the
Municipal Land Use Law N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1 et seq.
The basic duty of any planning board and zoning board of adjustment is to oversee all land use
regulations within a municipality. Since the Borough of Maywood was established in 1894 and is
currently almost fully developed, the Maywood Planning Board continually faces the challenge
of responsibly providing for the orderly development and redevelopment of the properties within
the Borough to ensure the residential character of the Borough is preserved while properly
balancing the need and desire to develop commercial and industrial uses.
The Maywood Planning Board acts pursuant to the Municipal Land Use Law,
N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1, et seq. The Planning Board hears appeals of Administrative Officer’s
decisions, grants variances from the requirements of the Maywood Zoning Ordinance (Chapter
209) and renders interpretations of Maywood Zoning Ordinance. The Maywood Planning Board
also reviews applications for site plan and subdivision approval and is empowered to make
recommendations to the Maywood Governing Body regarding amendments to the zoning
ordinances, official zoning map as well as capital improvement projects proposed within the Borough.
The Maywood Planning Board also prepares and regularly reexamines and updates the Maywood
Master Plan in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Land Use Law. The most recent
Master Plan reexamination was adopted during 2009. Copies of the Maywood Master Plan are
available from the office of the Planning Board Secretary and Maywood Borough Clerk.
The Maywood Planning Board’s regularly scheduled public meetings are held on the 1st and 4th
Thursday of the month at 7:30pm in the Council Chambers of the Maywood Municipal Building,
15 Park Avenue, Maywood, New Jersey unless otherwise provided for in accordance with the Open
