Dr. James W. Hughes, the Dean of the Bloustein School of Planning at Rutgers University and Timothy Evans, Research Director at New Jersey Future, will discuss their research on the demographic shifts in New Jersey that are impacting the housing and economic activity in the suburbs.

Hovnanian Companies, who are redeveloping several large office campuses.
