Achieving Results Through Integrated Regional Planning

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM
January 1, 1970

An important goal of regional planning is to foster collaboration and coordination among various levels of government, the private sector and non-profit organizations to advance a shared vision of regional livability and economic competitiveness. Together North Jersey represents a unique partnership of public and private organizations working together to develop a long-range plan for regional prosperity that cuts across jurisdictions, place types, and functional areas (transportation, land use, housing, economic development and others). This session will focus on how Federal, State, regional and local plans and programs are being aligned to achieve a common vision for the future.
