This dataset contains the point locations of Identified Centers of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan (NJSDRP). Centers are the NJSDRP's preferred vehicle for accommodating growth. A Center's compact form is considerably more efficient than sprawl, providing opportunities for cost savings across a wide range of factors. Compact form also translates into significant land savings. A Center's development form and structure, designed to accommodate diversity, is also more flexible than single-use, single-purpose sprawl, allowing Centers to evolve and adapt over time, in response to changing conditions and markets. Centers promote community, protect the environment, provide enhanced cultural and aesthetic experiences, and offer residents a superior quality of life.Identified Centers are those that have been approved by the NJ State Planning Commission as places where Designated Centers might be created. Identified Centers are preliminary in nature and would get mapped boundaries if designated. Center locations were determined through a process called "Cross-acceptance," in coordination with other state, county and local entities. At this point, the Identified Centers have been on the official state plan mapping for over 25 years. It could be argued that they are no longer relevant as 25 years is more than enough time for them to have moved on to designation. Refer to the NJSDRP for further description of the geographic nature of Centers.
The Identified Centers file was created to help implement the goals of the New Jersey State Plan. It is used for making maps illustrating the NJSDRP, for analyzing the NJSDRP and for comparing to other GIS files and mapping. The State Plan is not itself a regulation but a statement of State policy that has been adopted by the State Planning Commission pursuant to statute to guide State, regional and local agencies in the exercise of their statutory authority.
