"Where Are We Growing? Planning for New Jersey's Next 20 Years" is the title of a conference scheduled for 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Experts from government agencies, nonprofit organizations and the building industry will evaluate the impact of the 1985 State Planning Act, which has guided state agency and local government efforts to preserve natural resources, revitalize urban centers, protect the environment and provide needed public services. Panelists will discuss what type of state planning system makes sense to shape the next 20 years of growth in New Jersey.
Online registration is required to attend the conference, which is sponsored by the Policy Research Institute for the Region.
