RELEASE: December 20, 2004


Department of Transportation issues a pre-proposal notice regarding qualification and registration of professionals for expedited permits and other regulatory amendments for expedited permits

The New Jersey Department of Transportation is developing regulatory amendments and new regulations pursuant to P.L. 2004, c. 89, which provides for the expediting of certain Department permits in smart growth areas.

The proposed regulatory amendments will be applicable to Access Code permits as found in N.J.A.C. 16:47, Highway Occupancy permits as found in N.J.A.C. 16:41, the licensing of Aeronautical Facilities as found in 16:54, and permits for the creation or expansion of a prohibited land use or vertical height development within an airport safety zone as found in N.J.A.C. 16:62. These proposed regulatory amendments will include, but will not be limited to, the requirements for expedited permit submissions, the process for appealing expedited permit decisions, expedited permit fee schedules, and checklists for expedited permit applications, plans and specification submissions.

The proposed new chapter is intended to outline the Department's program of qualification and registration of professionals who will certify that expedited permit applications are complete and that the statutory and regulatory requirements for the same have been met by the applicant, pursuant to P.L. 2004, c.89 and other applicable laws. This chapter is intended to identify the professionals who may qualify and register, describe the standards and requirements necessary for proper administration and enforcement of this program, and include the basis for suspension or revocation of a professional's qualification and registration.

The pre-proposal appears in the December 20, 2004 issue of the New Jersey Register . The public has until March 20, 2005 to comment on the pre-proposal. Persons wishing to comment on the proposal must provide their comments in writing to Pat Snyder, Director, Division of Policy, Legislation and Regulatory Actions, NJ Department of Transportation, 1035 Parkway Avenue, PO Box 600 , Trenton , NJ 08625-0600 .
