The Washington Township Planning Board meets once a month and has frequent site walks for pending applications. The nine member planning board’s essential duties are to deal with policy and the implementation of that policy through the site plan and subdivision ordinances. These ordinances establish a series of ground rules to be met by applicants. If the applicant meets the ordinance requirements, the planning board must approve the subject application.



The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board which consists of seven regular members and two alternate members and meets once a month.  The Board has the power to grant variances which allow for the "non-permitted" use of a property in accordance with the municipality's zoning laws.
