11:15 AM - 12:45 PM
January 1, 1970

Two regional planning efforts – RPA’s Fourth Regional Plan and Together North Jersey – are exploring the nexus between workforce, land use and transportation through spatial analysis and on-the-ground demonstration projects. Recognizing advances of the digital age, millennial-driven shifts in residential demand and commuting patterns, and the need to enhance access for low-income populations, it is time to reevaluate the transportation and land use decisions and investments necessary to provide greater employer access to its workforce resources. This session will provide an introduction to the intersection of jobs, workforce, transportation and land use, as well as probe how we should anticipate and plan for the future of work.
