In its biggest event of the year, New Jersey Future will hold the annual Redevelopment Forum on Friday, March 10 at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick. The daylong event attracts more than 500 local and state officials, citizen activists, development professionals, architects, attorneys, planners, business leaders and students, and affords them the opportunity to share innovative ideas, best practices and lessons learned through comprehensive workshops and panels throughout the event.
The Redevelopment Forum kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with welcoming remarks, then moves into the morning plenary session: The New Politics of Redevelopment. This session will address the impact of the new federal administration on states and cities looking to advance place-based economic and redevelopment activities, and will explore what states and cities can do on their own to make progress. It will provide an overview from the national perspective of what some of the threats and opportunities might be, and then will discuss ways states can still get things done, regardless of the federal political landscape.
Concurrent breakout sessions begin at 11:00 a.m., where there will be a number of panels that delve into a wide array of topics related to the redevelopment of New Jersey.
Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., and the luncheon keynote speaker, former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, will deliver his remarks at 1:00 p.m. Afternoon breakout sessions begin at 2:15 p.m., and the day closes with a networking reception starting at 3:45 p.m.
