Small Business Survey for Gateway Neighborhood Planning Process
Pursuant to the Program Rules of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs’ (DCA) Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit (NRTC) program, the Perth Amboy Redevelopment Team for Neighborhood Enterprise and Revitalization’s (P.A.R.T.N.E.R.) intends to develop a new neighborhood plan for the GATEWAY NEIGHBORHOOD.
As mandated by the NRTC Program Rules, the process by which the plan developed will be one in which neighborhood residents, property owners, local businesses, and nonprofit organizations within the neighborhood or providing services to neighborhood residents will be able to participate. During the planning process, we are hosting a number of community meetings and other engagement opportunities Today's engagement presentation is with businesses in the Gateway and in the BID District to participate in the planning process. At the end of the process, before a final draft of the neighborhood plan is formally submitted to the DCA for approval for the NRTC program, P.A.R.T.N.E.R. will provide the City of Perth Amboy 30-day period to review the plan and make comments or suggestions.
This plan will identify neighborhood opportunities and issues, and propose a comprehensive set of economic development, housing, social support, and related strategies to drive forward the neighborhood’s revitalization over the next decade. When approved by the DCA, this Plan will also enable P.A.R.T.N.E.R. to participate in the NRTC’s annual project application rounds to seek funding to implement these comprehensive strategies.
This survey is with businesses in the Gateway and in the BID District to participate in the planning process.
