On November 29, 2011, Rutgers University hosted a workshop at the Bloustein School that brought together public and private sector leaders to assess and discuss the most significant effects of climate change in New Jersey and to begin preparedness planning to minimize economic impacts. With support from PSEG, the invitation-only workshop included high level national experts as well as interactive work sessions for participants to begin a dialogue on how to most effectively prepare for climate impacts on infrastructure, public health, coastal communities, and agriculture and natural resources. In addition to convening practitioners, policy-makers, scientist and leaders from across the State, the workshop included commentary from President McCormick and former Governors Thomas H. Kean and James J. Florio.

On September 22, Senator Robert Menendez welcomed members of New Jersey county government to a meeting at Rutgers to look ahead at their role in spurring redevelopment and encouraging sustainable strategies in the process. The National Center for Neighborhood and Brownfields Redevelopment and the New Jersey Association of Counties co-hosted this session for county freeholders, county improvement authorities and economic development directors.
The topic addressed the need to reuse properties that have historic uses as commercial and industrial and which may be eligible for brownfield remediation funding at either the state or federal level. These restored properties produce economic assets in the forms of ratables, add value to adjacent properties and generally improve the appearance and quality of life in their host neighborhoods.
