Urban Renewal Policy and Coordinating Board- Mission Statement and Organization
The Urban Renewal Policy and Coordinating Board was established by Mayor Carlin in 1961 to “establish an overall policy regarding the renewal program and coordinate the efforts of each and all the agencies combined.” Essentially, Mayor Carlin established the Board to coordinate the implementation of planning proposals and recommendations. Urban renewal policies and projects required a great deal of coordination between city, state, and federal government agencies. Noticeably absent in the hierarchy of the Board is any representation for citizens and communities in Newark that would be impacted by urban renewal plans.
