Thank you to our sponsors and the more than 500 attendees who joined New Jersey Future at the 15th Redevelopment Forum! Attendees heard from thought leaders in the field and analyzed current redevelopment trends with a special focus on health, resiliency, and equity.

Amendments to New Jersey’s stormwater management rules were  published   in the March 2, 2020 New Jersey Register. This rule change signals a paradigm shift in New Jersey stormwater management.

New Jersey Future analyzed 350 innovative strategies applied in 76 cities or regions that could serve as model initiatives to develop the 15 strategies detailed in the Local Options/Local Actions: Resilience Strategies Case Studies report for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). 

New Jersey Future recently held kickoff meetings in Pompton Lakes and Ridgefield Park as part of its  Creating Great Places to Age  program, which helps towns ensure that older residents can continue living in their communities and remain active, healthy, and engaged.
