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.  If you cannot attend one of the three events below, there will be an opportunity to share ideas online.  For more information visit our website. (The date, time and location of the third event is in the process of being finalized.)

Community Revitalization through Brownfields Webinar

October 29, 2019 - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Online

REGISTER

This webinar will familiarize municipalities and green teams on the Sustainable Jersey brownfields actions and provide information on the beneficial reuse of blighted or abandoned properties that are potentially contaminated. These properties, also known as "brownfields" can be repurposed for community health and safety and economic revitalization. Repurposing a brownfield site takes advantage of existing infrastructure and transit and reduces pressure on undeveloped or "greenfields" properties. A redevelopment roadmap will be provided that parallels the three brownfield actions: Inventory and Prioritization; Marketing; and Reuse Planning. Presenters include:  Jean Hamerman, Deputy Director, The Creative Center for Land Recycling; Bill Lindner, Manager, Office of Brownfield Reuse, Site Remediation and Waste Management Program, NJDEP; Leah Yasenchak, Principal, BRS, Inc.; and JR Capasso, Brownfields Coordinator, Division of Economic Development, Department of Housing & Economic Development, Trenton City.
