The Residential Site Improvement Standards establish Statewide requirements for improvements made in connection with residential development, including streets and parking, water supply, sanitary sewers and stormwater management.
The Site Improvement Advisory Board, a 12-member board created in but not of the Dept. of Community Affairs, is charged by statute with performing an annual review of the Residential Site Improvement Standards to determine whether changes are warranted.
