This article highlights a recent meeting of the Smart Growth Economic Development Coalition at the Sills Cummis & Gross Newark, NJ office. The coalition, which includes the state’s largest real estate trade associations, including NAIOP New Jersey, the New Jersey Builders Association, the New Jersey Apartment Association, revealed comprehensive recommendations to assist newly elected New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and his administration. These recommendations include ways to preserve and improve the state’s popular incentive programs, standardize local land use procedures, create new sites for industrial projects and build on efforts to streamline environmental regulations.

Smart Growth Economic Development Coalition Founder and Co-Chair of the Sills Cummis & Gross Real Estate Department Ted Zangari was quoted stating: “We’re excited about the possibilities. There is no one dramatic suggestion that we’re putting out this time, but when you look at the recommendations collectively, they’re just as important to getting us to the next level.”
