Mazzeo Bill to Help Businesses in Western Atlantic County Expand & Create Jobs Heads to Governor’s Desk

By a vote of 72-1, the full Assembly on Thursday granted final legislative approval to a bill sponsored by Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo (D-Atlantic) that would allow industrial businesses in the Pinelands looking to expand to take advantage of certain incentives currently not available to them.

The bill (A-3914) would allow rural development areas zoned for industrial use as of the effective date of the bill, as designated within the Pinelands Commission's comprehensive management plan, to be included as areas eligible for qualifying business facility and developer project incentives under the Grow New Jersey Assistance Program and the Economic Redevelopment and Growth Grant Program. Both of these business incentive programs are administered by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
