Although New Jersey is far from the largest state in the Union, it is the most densely populated, making it a challenge to protect our land. Our 8,729 square miles of land encompass many diverse uses. Land Use Management is a group of programs that protect and enhance New Jersey's environment through implementation of State land use regulations, regional land use planning, coastal resource management and funding projects that result in improvements to the quality of the State's environment. Bob Bostock sits down with Assistant Commissioner of Land Use Management Ginger Kopkash to discuss DEP’s role in ensuring that New Jersey’s land remains diverse and well protected.
