Message From The Director 
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Planning Divisionís website.

 The Planning Division operates under the guidance of the Somerset County Planning Board, whose members are appointed by the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

The Division oversees transportation projects, economic development, open space and farmland preservation initiatives.

The Agricultural Development Board, Cultural & Heritage Commission and Office of Solid Waste Management each function as separate entities, but report to the Division.

I encourage you to explore our website and look forward to addressing any questions or requests for additional information.
