55:19-2. Findings, declarations
The Legislature finds and declares:
a. For several years past economic decline has persisted in the urban centers of the State, despite programs created by both State and federal governments to aid local governments in stemming the decline and stimulating redevelopment.
b. The economic decline of these areas is linked to obsolescence and decay of capital assets, both public and private, and insufficiency of new capital investment for public facilities and amenities, productive industrial plants, and adequate housing.
c. In establishing the Urban Development Corporation, with the powers and functions prescribed in this act, it is the intention of the Legislature to create an instrument for utilizing the widest possible range of financing techniques to coordinate available private and public resources for the revitalization of our urban communities.
d. The corporation is intended to complement and supplement private-sector financing and development activities, and should not unnecessarily compete with or supplant responsible private-sector interest in the implementation of its projects.
L. 1985, c. 227, s. 2, eff. July 8, 1985.
