City Liaison - Tina Evans: 201-871-6645 

******Tina Evans is Land Use Administrator. She is a paid employee 
who works in the building department for the construction official. At
this time we are wondering why she is Planning Board Secretary and
Secretary to the Zoning Board of Adjustment. She is also a voting
member of the Planning Board. She lives in Mahwah and has not 
participated in the mandatory training. Why is Tina Evans, a resident
of Mahwah a voting member of Englewood's Planning Board?

She is wearing too many important hats and she has not been trained.

Food for thought

"On July 7, 2005 an act providing for the mandatory, one-time training 
of planning and zoning board (and consolidated land use board) members 
was signed into law. (N.J.S.A. 40:55D-23.3 and 23.4) The training consists 
of five contact hours within the same calendar day. Areas of study include: 
the roles and responsibilities of planning and zoning board members under 
the MLUL, understanding the master plan and sub-elements and 
its relationship to other local, regional and state planning documents and 
the local development application review process. Each participant will 
complete a simple standardized test at the end of the course. All board 
members are required to satisfactorily complete this course..."
