PPG Managing Principal to Present at 2016 New Jersey Future Redevelopment Forum

PPG Managing Principal Paul A. Phillips will be a speaker on a panel entitled Redevelopment Law Update at the 2016 New Jersey Future Redevelopment Forum on March 11th in New Brunswick. Recent court cases and legislation have changed the rules for redevelopment. This session will examine the amendment to the Local Redevelopment and Housing Law that permits the redevelopment process to include or exclude eminent domain, intended to eliminate the controversial eminent domain issue in many municipalities where property does not need to be acquired. In addition, the panel will explore the Hackensack decision, which restored some of the flexibility related to designating an area in need of redevelopment that had been reduced by cases such as Gallenthin v. Paulsboro and its progeny.
