Working for Smart Growth:
More Livable Places and Open Spaces


New Jersey Planning and Redevelopment Conference

The New Jersey Planning and Redevelopment Conference (NJPRC) brings together bold ideas, innovative solutions, proven concepts, and best practices for creating stronger, more inclusive, and equitable places where people live, work, and play.

New Jersey Future and APA New Jersey have proudly been partnering since 2021 to present an annual conference, which features a multitude of timely session offerings with numerous speakers from different disciplines. Over the past three years, the hybrid conference format allowed for a mix of pre-recorded, live-streamed, and in-person sessions, a virtual and in-person exhibit area, and ways to connect with fellow attendees. 

Redevelopment and comprehensive planning can help optimize efficiency, promote sustainable growth, and bolster community resilience. Over 900 visionary professionals, elected officials, and community activists join together to continue reimagining land use.

Thank you to all who support the New Jersey Planning and Redevelopment Conference each year so together we can create the highest level of content for a hybrid three-day conference. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact Susan O’Connor  (soconnoratnjfuturedotorg)  .
