Featuring 45 sessions, 200 speakers, and 700 guests, the New Jersey Planning Conference is the largest land use conference in the region.
Co-hosted by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association and the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the conference educates and empower planners and other land use professionals, elected and appointed officials, and citizen activists on ways to advance the art and science of good planning — physical, economic and social — to create communities that offer better and more equitable choices for how people live, work and play.
This year, DNJ President, Bob Zuckerman, will be featured in a Friday morning panel.
Glass Half Full: Reforming New Jersey’s Antiquated Liquor Laws
New Jersey is home to some of the most archaic and out-of-date liquor laws in the country. Yet, despite some recent progress, reform measures continue to languish in the state legislature. As a result, licenses are still very restrictive and expensive, impacting the economic development of many of the state’s downtown districts and municipalities. Hear firsthand from the experts on what can be done to reform these outdated laws and how any future reform would affect the planning process throughout the state.
