We are fortunate to hear from no fewer than five mayors at the Redevelopment Forum this year, talking about how they have used their leadership positions to foster quality redevelopment.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop will be delivering the breakfast keynote, focusing on how to spread the benefits of redevelopment throughout a community, and on opportunities that green infrastructure offers.
Mayor Alex Torpey of South Orange will be presenting in the afternoon in Building for the Next Generation, about how we need to accommodate the preferences of the Millennial generation if we are to be economically viable.
Mayor James Maley of the Borough of Collingswood will also be participating in the afternoon session Mixing Business with Pleasure: Alcohol’s Role in Downtown Redevelopment, highlighting the case for liquor licenses as a key to successful redevelopment.
Finally, Mayor Dwayne Warren of the City of Orange Township will be presenting in the session How To Harness the Creative Energy in Your Community, about how communities can use the arts to influence investment. Come join us and learn from their experiences.
