DescriptionThe City of Newark is presently engaged in ambitious urban renewal activities for the revitalizing or rebuilding of existing deteriorating and blighted conditions.
During Newark's three hundred years of growth, physical residential and other facilities in many parts of the City have deteriorated to such an extent that they require either complete clearance and replacement of structures, or in some cases effective rehabilitation and restoration of basic minimum standards, in order to provide decent, safe and sanitary use and occupancy.
Creeping blight threatens every portion of Newark. Together with the existing severely substandard conditions, it has made imperative the establishment of a city-wide comprehensive renewal program in order to deal effectively with these problems. In addition, the comprehensive program is needed to assign priorities to the various individual renewal projects now under active consideration.
This booklet summarizes current information and data relative to each of the existing urban renewal projects and describes their present status. Since each of these projects are active, the information given must be related to the date of compilation.
