The 2007 Master Plan represents a consolidation of adopted and proposed municipal planning policies that were prepared by a variety of professional planning and environmental professionals in cooperation with the members of the Planning Board, the Environmental Commission and the Farmland Preservation Committee and the Farmland Preservation Committee.

The Farmland Preservation Plan dated September, 2005 was prepared by the Morris Land Conservancy in consultation with the Farmland Preservation Committee.

The Open Space and Recreation Plan, dated February 2006 was prepared by the Morris Land Conservancy in consultation with the Township Environmental Commission. 

Finally, The Master Plan elements other than Farmland Preservation and Open Space and Recreation Plan Elements are the work of professional planners Eric Snyder and John Madden. Mr. Snyder prepared all of the background information and most of the goals and policies set forth on the various plan elements. All maps with the exception of the land use plan maps and carrying capacity maps were prepared by Witte Environmental Services. Mr. Madden prepared revisions to the goals and policies, mainly in the land use plan element. Mr. Madden's work was a result of the 2005 Master Plan Reexamination report which was adopted by the Planning Board on October 17, 2005. The Reexamination Report recommendations for changes to the land use plan and zoning ordinance and map were based in part by on an updated nitrate dilution based carrying capacity assessment by the Hydro geological Group of Maser Consulting, dated September 7, 2005. The 2007 Master Plan represents a consolidation of adopted and proposed municipal planning policies that were prepared by a variety of professional planning and environmental professionals in cooperation with the members of the Planning Board, the Environmental Commission and the Farmland Preservation Commission.
