The powers afforded municipalities under the Local Redevelopment and Housing Law to reshape their communities are filled with promise and pitfalls. This session, featuring the authors of The Redevelopment Handbook: A Guide to Rebuilding New Jersey’s Communities (now in its second edition; available for purchase from APA-New Jersey via the link), will provide an overview of the redevelopment process, including the statutory criteria that must be established to determine that an area is in need of redevelopment, the steps that must be taken to adopt a redevelopment plan, together with a roadmap to follow the key legal requirements. The presenters will also discuss methods to engage the community in the process.
