Informal Technical Review Committee


The purpose of the Informal Technical Review Committee is to provide an added level of service to commercial applicants wishing to do business in the Township of Millburn. Informal reviews will address deficiencies in a commercial application, provide direct responses to inquiries and technical guidance to applicants for the submission of a complete application, as well as communicate next steps in the process. 

The Informal Technical Review Committee will not offer opinions on the merits of an application, deem an application complete or provide any indication of the applicant’s potential success in applying. The Informal Technical Review Committee has no authority to approve or deny an application or circumvent any authority bestowed upon the Millburn Township Board of Adjustment or Planning Board.


Meetings will occur on the second Wednesday of each month between the hours of 9:00 and 10:30 a.m.
