Please join us at the 2020 New Jersey Future Redevelopment Forum.

New Jersey Future’s annual Redevelopment Forum attracts more than 500 local and state officials, citizen activists, development professionals, architects, attorneys, planners, business leaders and students. Redevelopment allows for the re-use of infrastructure, takes advantage of historically strategic locations, maintains and improves communities and preserves remaining open spaces. It is clear that redevelopment, already at the heart of many of the opportunities available today, will play an even more vital role in the future.

By bringing together leaders in both government and the private sector who are working tirelessly to create sustainable redevelopment solutions to New Jersey’s problems, participants can share innovative ideas, learn best practices, and make our state a better place for tomorrow. These comprehensive workshops and panels feature impressive speakers with real world redevelopment experience.
