Ingrid Reed — whose career in politics, planning, governance and community affairs has left an indelible mark on the civic life of Princeton, Mercer County and the State of New Jersey — will be honored by New Jersey Future at a special reception at the Morven Museum & Gardens on Nov. 21 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Reed, a Princeton Borough resident, was a founding member of New Jersey Future, the Trenton-based research and advocacy organization focused on smart growth and sustainable development, and recently completed three years as chair of the nonprofit organization’s board. She also recently retired as director of the New Jersey Project at Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics.

Reed has a wide range of experiences, as both a professional and volunteer, including:

  • Member of the New Jersey State Planning Committee for Implementing the Federal Help America Vote Act;
  • Chair of the Governor’s Task Force on Local Government Ethics;
  • Chair of the Capital City Redevelopment Corporation, a state agency, since it began in 1988;
  • Member of the Regional Plan Association’s New Jersey Committee;
  • Trustee of the Community Foundation of New Jersey from 2000 to 2009;
  • Vice-chair of the board of the Institute of Public Administration.

Reed has also been elected a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration, serving on its special panel on Civic Trust and Citizen Responsibility. From 1983 to 1986, she held a Kellogg Foundation National Leadership Fellowship and she received the 2009 Civic Leadership Award from the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association.

In addition to honoring her many contributions and achievements, the Nov. 21 reception will inaugurate New Jersey Future’s Senior Fellow program and welcome Reed as its first participant. The program offers an opportunity for experienced land use scholars, policy analysts, policymakers and other experts to explore ideas and concepts that advance the goals of sustainable development and smarter growth in New Jersey. The program allows New Jersey Future to benefit from the senior fellow’s work products and expertise in the field, while providing the senior fellow with a support system for conducting innovative work.
