Event Sponsor: NJ Planning Conference 2017
Camden, New Jersey is in the midst of an unprecedented urban renaissance. Driven by over two billion dollars of tax credit waterfront projects, the riverfront city is rapidly transforming from the #1 murder city in the U.S. to the region’s best investment. This session will provide an overview of the comprehensive safety, education, tax credit and urban design elements that form the basis of the transformation and will illustrate the physical, economic and social connections required to be successful. The new police force, charter school system, rail line extension and numerous headquarter relocations, including Holtec, 76ers, American Water, Subaru and American Water, will be discussed.
