State strategic plan adoption postponed due to storm

TRENTON – The state strategic plan, an expansive planning and development document, was supposed to be adopted today but that has been put off as a result of the hurricane.

In light of what Sandy did to the state, Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno indicated today that they felt it was best to hold off on passing a comprehensive state plan for the moment.

Guadagno said the plan adoption has been postponed before, and a further postponement would not hurt.

 “In light of this catastrophe,” Christie said, “it was my thought and the lieutenant governor’s thought as well it made sense to put it off. ” He said they will put it off for about six months.

He said there is no preconceived outcome as to what, if anything, may change in the plan as a result of the storm.
