A survey being conducted by New Jersey Future, in conjunction with the downtown economic consulting firm JGSC Group, is designed to identify unmet needs for capacity or technical assistance in local downtown revitalization efforts.

“Revitalizing our traditional downtowns is a key way for New Jersey to grow smart,” said New Jersey Future Executive Director Peter Kasabach. “There is increasing market demand for both housing and jobs in these places, and we want to help towns access the resources they need in order to meet that demand. This survey will help us identify the most urgent needs.”

The survey, which is being sent to local officials and executives in charge of downtown revitalization across New Jersey’s municipalities, asks respondents to indicate how this process is managed and funded in their towns and what they need in order to make their revitalization efforts more effective. It also provides an overview of tools available to help bring new life to downtowns, and it asks respondents to indicate which they’ve taken advantage of.

Survey results will be compiled by New Jersey Future into a report that will be made available to municipalities.

All municipal officials and executives responsible for downtown revitalization are invited to take the survey.
