  • Tax Abatements: Friend or Foe?

    Friday, July 27th, 2018 – Friday, July 27th, 2018

    As New Jersey’s economy grows, more and more municipalities are embracing smart growth principles through redevelopment studies and plans in addition to leveraging PILOTs (Payments In Lieu of Taxes) to ensure project viability. Unfortunately, there is a general lack of understanding amongst residents leading to community controversy. This half-day workshop, hosted by industry leaders, will empower attendees with the knowledge necessary to understand and negotiate the best deals while also debunking redevelopment myths and misconceptions.  Featured speakers include Brian Slaugh, PP/AICP, of Clarke Caton Hintz, an AHPNJ sponsor.
