Courtesy Reviews of Development Projects

The Project Application Review Committee (PARC) was created by the City of Trenton to assist individuals interested in developing property in Trenton. The committee is made up of staff members from the following city departments:

·        Department of Inspections-building, fire, plumbing, electrical, and zoning.

·        Department of Public Works-water and sewer utilities

·        Department of Housing and Economic Development-planning.

·        Department of Health and Human Services-health

The committee meets on a biweekly basis to review and provide comments on proposed projects in the City of Trenton that are in the conceptual or schematic stages of development.

The purpose of PARC is to help those who are interested in developing property in the evaluation of their project and to advise them of the requirements and approvals needed in the areas of zoning, planning, utilities, health and inspections.

At the PARC meeting, applicants have the opportunity to describe, in as much detail as possible, their proposed plans for the property. The various city review agencies will then have an opportunity to give applicants an evaluation of how the project will be impacted by city codes and ordinances and advise applicants on how to comply with these requirements.

The objective of the PARC meeting is to provide applicants with a review of their proposed development in order that they may be able to determine if their project, as proposed, is feasible.  Applicants will also be apprised if formal submittals of plans will be required and to which appropriate city boards or other offices they should be submitted.

The PARC meetings are coordinated through then City's Department of Housing and Economic Development, Division of Planning.  The PARC application form is available in the Forms Center of this website. You may also contact the Division of Planning at 609-989-3505 to receive a PARC application. (Fax 609-989-3517)

The committee meets in the Department of Inspections Conference Room C located on the second floor of City Hall Annex 319 E. State Street Trenton, New Jersey 08608. After completing and returnting the PARC application to the city for review, the applicant will be contacted about being placed on the next available PARC agenda.
