NJBIA Vice President for Government Affairs Ray Cantor told NJ Spotlight that the business community is comfortable with the idea of restricting development in flood prone areas, provided that the policy is centered are scientific data, not assumptions.
“There are obviously areas of the state where people should not be living, such as the Passaic River basin,” Cantor said after the meeting. “We have to learn how we’re going to live in an environment that is changing but with more challenges.”
Cantor’s comments came at the end of a long article looking at DEP’s development of land-use regulations, as required by Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order.
