Re: Memorial Service for Stuart R. Koenig, Esq.
On Saturday, September 15, New Jersey’s foremost expert on land use law, Stuart R. Koenig, Esq., unexpectedly passed away. Stuart Koenig will long be remembered for the depth of his knowledge, his willingness to share that knowledge, his articulate advocacy for better local government, his tenacity, and his wit.
During his long career, he served as special counsel to more than 40 municipalities, and was frequently consulted by municipal and land use board attorneys on issues and questions involving municipal and land use law. He had long served as Senior Assistant Counsel to the New Jersey League of Municipalities. In that capacity, he represented the League on land use issues, advised on legislative matters, drafted legislation, testified before legislative committees, and appeared in appellate litigation on our behalf. He also served as the Chair of the Land Use, Environmental Protection and Economic Development Subcommittee of the League’s Legislative Committee.
PLEASE MAKE COPIES OF THIS LETTER AVAILABLE TO YOUR MUNICIPAL ATTORNEY, PLANNING AND ZONING BOARDS, PLANNING AND ZONING PROFESSIONALS AND OTHER ADMINISTRATIVE PERSONNEL.
