Deadline Friday – Join Us!
May 12th, 2011 by New Jersey Future staff
More than 200 people are already committed to attending our 10th Smart Growth Awards on Thursday, June 9. As usual, we expect a great networking event with a room full of New Jersey’s leaders in smart growth.
We hope you and your colleagues will join us for the occasion, and a great way to participate is through sponsorship, which includes an ad in the printed and electronic program book as well as tickets to the event. For the first time, an electronic version of the program book will be distributed to more than 4,000 leaders in the state – developers, architects, planners, municipal officials, and more.
Celebrate 10 years of smart growth success by joining us, please email Dan Fatton (dfattonnjfutureorg) or call 609-393-0008 ext. 105, before the end of the day on Friday, May 13.
Seven projects and 17 honorees will receive Smart Growth Awards for initiatives ranging from a new village center in Byram Township (Sussex County) to a creative inter-municipal affordable housing project in Pilesgrove Township and Woodstown Borough (Salem County) to an innovative recycling complex in Woodbridge.
