The following is a release from the Lakewood UEZ (Urban Enterprise Zone):
As you know, last year in August the governor’s office signed into legislation the revamping of the State’s Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) program. As part of the new life given to this program, the state has initiated a UEZ Zone Map Restructuring process. It’s been more than a decade since the UEZ program was in full effect and the 32 UEZ municipalities have experienced dynamic changes to their respective business and industrial sectors… especially Lakewood!
Business areas have changed, new ones have developed, and some others have changed with some converting to residential developments and the like. Therefore, there is a need to modify the map.
We would love to get input from our Lakewood business community specifically regarding areas that currently are not located in the Lakewood UEZ zone map, with their suggestions for what should be included in the new map. You can access online the current zone map here:
LAKEWOOD UEZ BOUNDARY MAP (adopted 2011).
Your input will help us during this process to identify all eligible areas to be included.
Important things to remember:
Businesses must be registered with the state of New Jersey.
Businesses must operate out of a store front, office, factory, or warehouse.
Information on eligibility and program details can be found here: NJ UEZ Program – Eligibility and Program Details
Please email your suggestions by July 15, 2022 to: UEZ@Lakewoodnj.gov.
When sending your suggestions, please indicate “Zone Map Modification” in the subject line. In the body of the email please include:
Name of the business
Street address of business and cross streets.
Names of other businesses within a 2 square block radius (if you can).
Thanking you in advance for your participation in this process!
