Despite predictions for snowy weather, more than 500 people turned out for Redevelopment Forum 2017. They were treated to a day full of thought-provoking presentations and valuable insights in to the best way to move redevelopment forward in New Jersey as a way to grow.
And we made the news! NJTV News was on site for most of the morning, interviewing a variety of speakers on issues ranging from investing in infrastructure to investing in Millennials. Their clip is below. We’ll have a full photo gallery up soon.
Save the date! The 2018 Redevelopment Forum will be Friday, March 9, at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick. See you there!

In his breakfast keynote, State Senate President Steve Sweeney will outline his vision for addressing New Jersey’s transportation funding crisis, and the need for New Jersey to invest in its transportation infrastructure in order to remain economically competitive in a global economy. These investment needs include not just repairing roads and bridges, but upgrading and expanding our mass transit and rail freight systems and building a new Gateway Tunnel.
Stephen Sweeney decided to enter public life after his daughter Lauren was born with Down Syndrome. A union ironworker by trade and the current general vice president of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers Union, Sen. Sweeney has sponsored and supported measures to protect the rights of workers and support organized labor. Seeing firsthand the challenge of caring for a loved one without losing your job, he sponsored the state’s Paid Family Medical Leave Act. He has led the effort to raise New Jersey’s minimum wage and continues to champion fair and equitable wages.
