WOODBURY — Gloucester County has launched what’s called GC2040: Let’s Talk, a public survey to discuss how the county should grow in the next 25 years.

The results of the survey will be used to update the Land Use and Transportation elements of the county’s Master Plan, providing a blueprint for the county’s future growth and development. The Master Plan will represent the vision of the public – those who live, work, or play in Gloucester County.

Updating the Master Plan is important because Gloucester County is the fastest growing county in the Delaware Valley, said Freeholder Director Robert Damminger.

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) estimated that Gloucester County will gain 87,829 residents, a 30% increase, and 30m463 jobs, a 26% increase, by 2040, said Freeholder Heather Simmons, liaison to the county’s planning department.

To promote the survey, planning department staff will be distributing posters and flyers to municipal buildings, bus racks, county vehicles and more. The survey is available in English and Spanish.

The survey is being funded through a $125,000 grant that Gloucester County received from the Delaware River Valley Planning Commission to update its Master Plan. For more information and to take the survey, visit
