March Madness for EDANJ
Some Notes from the 5th Northeast Sustainable Community Workshop held March 5, 2014 in Jersey City at Liberty Science Center
 
EDANJ was a partnering organization for the Workshop, known as NSCW, which featured  a thought-provoking  afternoon plenary on building a resilient future.  The panel included Mayor Steven Fulop of Jersey City and Deputy Commissioner Michele Siekerka of NJDEP, who spoke about the impacts of Superstorm Sandy   on a local and a state level.  Alex Washburn, now with Stevens Institute of Technology, described his experience as the former chief urban designer for NYC and discussed "bottom-up" rebuilding based on his involvement in his neighborhood of Red Hook.  He contrasted that approach with "top-down" change management exercised by NYC.
 
Other topics discussed interactively with over 200 community and redevelopment professionals during the full day included creation of stronger, safer and more resilient and sustainable infrastructure, public/private partnership successes in Jersey City, and waterfront development in the northeast region after the lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy,
