Join APA New Jersey for a guided tour of Newark followed by a networking reception at Redd’s Biergarten in the heart of Newark’s Arena District from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 pm.

The tour will begin at Military Park and from there, our guides will take tour participants to small businesses, corporate headquarters, and new residential developments to discuss economic development.

Planners will learn more about historic renovations projects including The Walker House and unique development concepts like Teachers Village. Policy discussions will include the Newark 2020 initiative which seeks to cut unemployment and the city’s Inclusive Zoning Ordinance.

The tour will be led by Emily Manz, President of EMI Strategy and Founder of Have You Meet Newark Tours and Jorge Santos, Vice President of Economic Development at the Newark Alliance.
