PERTH AMBOY — Together North Jersey and the Jewish Renaissance Foundation invite members of the public to share their ideas about “Where are we now?” and “Where are we headed?” at an upcoming workshop on Thursday, Aug. 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Al Jankowski Community Center, 1 Olive Street, Perth Amboy. This input will be used to develop the long-range plans to shape the future of northern and central New Jersey.
Also on the agenda is an interactive presentation of the Smith Street Central Business District Study. This TNJ-sponsored project is part of the Gateway Neighborhood Collaborative (GNC), a neighborhood revitalization planning process that aims to identify the issues and concerns affecting the residents of the Gateway Neighborhood (commonly known as Inner Dublin). This input will be used to develop a written plan to revitalize the Gateway Neighborhood in Perth Amboy.
The workshop is part of a series being held throughout the region by Together North Jersey, a consortium of local, state, and regional partners working together on a Regional Plan for Sustainable Development. These workshops are an opportunity for the public to share ideas about planning for the future to build stronger communities and local and regional economies with better access to transportation, housing, jobs, educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities. Perth Amboy residents will also have the opportunity to contribute opinions about the Gateway Neighborhood’s commercial corridor, as part of the CBD Study presentation.
Together North Jersey membership is open to any public jurisdiction, agency or authority; nongovernmental organization; neighborhood association; community and faith-based organization; private business or company; or educational institution located in the region or serving the region. Funding support for Together North Jersey is provided through a Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development received by Rutgers University in
January 2012. For more information, visit http://togethernorthjersey.com.
