Draft Proposal: Newark Riverfront Development Framework

On December 15, over 75 Newarkers came to City Hall to learn about, discuss, and debate proposed rules to govern the future development of the Newark Riverfront. Below, please find links to download the Draft Proposal for a Newark Riverfront Development Framework that was presented at the meeting.

While many details remain to be resolved, the PDF presentation and accompanying maps (10 megabytes) provide a vision for Land Use, Height, Open Space, and Public Access along the riverfront from the North Ward through the Ironbound.

(Further background may be found in the Riverfront Development Workbooks, available for download here.)

Please share any questions or comments with a Comment Sheet. Based upon feedback received at the 12/15 public meeting and subsequently, the planning team will now complete a full draft for public review.

Stay tuned for our next public meeting in the spring later this year.
