Sustainable Jersey has come a long way over the past decade, and we would like to involve program participants in the planning process for the years to come. Three listening sessions will be held this Fall and for participants to share thoughts on what the next ten years might look like for New Jersey and the Sustainable Jersey program. These sessions will help envision the critical issues facing municipalities that Sustainable Jersey might tackle, how the program may better support the work being done on the ground, and more.

Redeveloping underutilized and blighted properties, termed “brownfields,” can help reduce emissions, preserve precious habitat, and reduce stormwater runoff. This webinar will explain how New Jersey municipalities and green teams can earn Sustainable Jersey points by taking steps to redevelop underutilized and potentially contaminated properties. Speakers, including representatives from the Center for Creative Land Recycling, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, BRS. Inc, and the City of Trenton will offer insights and provide a redevelopment roadmap that parallels the four Brownfield Actions: Inventory and Prioritization; Marketing; Reuse Planning; and the recently added Assessment and Investigation.
