2020 brings changes to New Jersey’s stormwater management seascape. NJDEP has published important amendments to the stormwater rules and further amendments are in the works. State legislation now allows the creation of stormwater utilities, through which municipalities can create a stable funding source for critical infrastructure improvements and maintenance. Looming over it all? Climate change and the massive challenges it presents. Learn about new stormwater requirements and opportunities, and how you can use them to improve communities. 1.5 AIA LU credits
One of New Jersey’s greatest assets is its diversity. Unfortunately, New Jersey remains an economically and racially segregated state–meaning that not only are some people excluded from opportunity, but also that municipalities are missing out on the economic and social benefits of diversity. How can we use redevelopment as a way to achieve diversity and establish an equitable future where everyone can thrive? This session will explore strategies for incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion into redevelopment projects, including housing. 1.5 AIA LU credits
Downtown redevelopment projects often account for either economic development analysis or place-based planning, but not both. Learn how to incorporate both of these crucial aspects, as well as community engagement, for successful downtown revitalization. For local economic development to be sustainable and welcomed by communities, it must foster healthy, connected communities that maintain a unique sense of place. 1.5 AIA LU credits.
