Date: October 29th 2019

Hello all,


I was looking through the Urban Mayors Press newsletter ( Newsletter FALL 2019.pdf) and thought the piece on page 7 (The OZ Opportunity) contained some interesting information to be aware of.


There are also links in the piece to a list of locations designated as Opportunity Zones ( and an amazing asset map of NJ from the Department of Community Affairs ( that includes libraries as a data point. 


Representatives from the NJ Economic Development Authority will be joining us for our December meeting (December 13 from 2-4pm at Sprague Library on the Montclair State University campus).  We should be able to learn more about Opportunity Zones from them and how libraries can connect businesses to opportunities.  I will be sending a full agenda shortly for that meeting.


If you have questions or comments, please let me know!
