as key state and interstate highways. The District covers 30.4- square-miles including parts of 14 dynamic towns and cities in Bergen and Hudson coun- ties that are home to a multi- tude of top-rate shopping and fine dining establishments, numerous cultural and his- torical attractions, and profes- sional sports, exposition and entertainment facilities. The selection of MetLife Sta- dium in the heart of the Mead- owlands to host Super Bowl 2014 is a testament to the area’s standing as a bustling

commerce center and offers a tremendous opportunity for companies to maximize prof- its when tens of thousands of football fans flock to the Meadowlands during Super Bowl week. Business owners can also feel confident in knowing that they have the support of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC), the regional planning and zon- ing agency that oversees the Meadowlands District. As a business-friendly, customer- service oriented organization, the NJMC is committed to

promoting economic growth, development and job cre- ation. The Commission has taken an increasingly proactive role in moving economic recovery forward. For instance, in 2011 the NJMC adopted a series of common-sense amendments to its rules and regulations to reduce the cost of operating in the District and increase opportunities for companies to locate and expand in the region. This year the NJMC will update its Master Plan to reflect its renewed commit- ment to promoting economic growth. The amendments will set the stage for revital- ization of established rede- velopment areas, satisfy the demand for state-of-the-art warehouse and distribution space and encourage the establishment of innovative and emerging industries, among other goals. When a business owner or developer is interested in coming to the District, the NJMC is here to help. Our professional staff, includ- ing engineers and planners, is available to consult with you on land use, planning, transportation, renewable energy, sustainability, and construction code issues. The Commission also employs a Business Development Coor- dinator who acts as a liaison to help ensure clear and effec- tive communication between the business and development community and NJMC staff. Many companies have taken notice of the improv- ing economic climate in the Meadowlands District and its unique and real benefits. In 2011 Macy’s constructed its new Parade Studio here, where the company prepares its floats and balloons for the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Goya Foods and Bindi Dessert Services are among those who plan in 2012 to open distribu- tion centers, office space and warehouses.
