The first webinar, on Dec. 3, introduces the enhanced clustering tools for a general audience. The second webinar, on Dec. 10, will examine more of the technical details associated with implementing a non-contiguous cluster plan, and is geared toward municipal planners and attorneys. Both webinars are free.  AICP-CM and CLE credits for these webinars are pending.
Attendees of both webinars will also learn more about a grant opportunity that New Jersey Future will offer to municipalities to help them develop a non-contiguous cluster ordinance.
