One Great Harbor: A Comprehensive Waterfront Plan for New Jersey

One Great Harbor:
A Comprehensive Waterfront Plan for New Jersey

From Englewood to Bayonne, in the State of New Jersey, counties and municipalities are progressively reinventing their waterfronts. A challenge before them is to share success stories and to cooperate more closely with each other and the sister City across the Harbor. New York City’s Comprehensive Waterfront Plan, released in March 2011, presents a rare opportunity for consolidating a progressive vision for both sides of the harbor and finding ways to share best practices, designs, and expertise across jurisdictions. This panel will explore what a Comprehensive Waterfront Plan would mean for New Jersey along with the challenges and benefits of its creation.
