  2. 2. Office of the Dean Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey 33 Livingston Avenue, Suite 300 New Brunswick, NJ 08901 848-932-5475 Fax: 732-932-1771 On behalf of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and Rutgers University, I would like to welcome you to the American Planning Association’s 2014 New Jersey Planning Conference. Now more than a year past one of the most challenging natural disasters facing our state, our profession has embraced the inclusion of stronger mitigation and resiliency policies into all aspects of the planning process. Adaptation to climate change, shoreline protection, stormwater management strategies and case studies of recovery are just a few of the post-Sandy topics of interest being presented. The focus of the conference, however, is more than just recovery and resiliency post-Sandy. From understanding shifting budgetary trends at the local and state levels to promoting sustainable development through the use of regulation and incentives, from understanding how the use of form-based codes can improve architectural and community design to considering how religious tolerance can be achieved while preserving a community’s character, you’ll find outstanding program offerings focused on APA’s mission to support and develop planning professionals who are dedicated to facing these challenges head-on. On Thursday, The Honorable Peter Buchsbaum, Superior Court (retired) will present a lunchtime keynote on the need for advocacy in planning. Jeffrey Otteau of The Otteau Valuation Group will present the Friday keynote speech on his analysis of the changed demographics, household incomes and housing finance realities that will drive the nature of housing needs in our future. The conference has continued to build upon the success of its predecessors, with two full days packed with a diverse range of topics and activities. Together, the Bloustein School and the APA-New Jersey chapter are committed to providing opportunities for both professionals and students to examine pertinent issues that come with continued urbanization in an increasingly difficult global economy and to become agents of positive change. I would also like to take the time to thank the many volunteers and sponsors, without whose assistance this event would not have been possible. James W. Hughes, Dean Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy
