About a month ago, a story ran that said that people were moving out of northwest New Jersey because of development restrictions imposed by the Highlands Act. The truth? People are moving out of northwest New Jersey, but not so much because of the Highlands Act. Highlands planning areas are actually growing, which suggests that a) the act is working as intended, and b) people are moving for entirely unrelated reasons.
