New Jersey is lucky to have the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation working to help boost their city’s financial status and help it grow. They are working to bring in new businesses, expand the businesses that have been there for years and improve the buildings, homes, and office space that is already there. They are also working to bring in new real estate growth to residential areas all over the city as well as developing real estate in corporate areas which includes minority and small businesses. This helps bring new jobs to the community which then brings in new families too. The Newark Community Economic Development Corporation used to be called The Brick City Development Corporation until they recently changed the name at the end of 2014. They have also relocated their offices and that in itself will save the city a quarter of a million dollars which was just the first of many smart financial moves they are planning to make. The city council also decided to vote in new members to the board and vote on new rules for the board and decrease its members by two.
