Priority Growth Investment Area

The Regional Center is Somerset County’s largest Priority Growth Investment Area (PGIA) within the Somerset County Investment Framework. PGIAs are areas where primary economic growth and community development strategies that enhance quality of life and economic competitiveness are preferred; where development and infrastructure assets are already concentrated, and are prime locations for vibrant mixed-use, live-work environments within walking distance of transit and green space.

The 2017 Supporting Priority Investment in Somerset County: Phase III Study developed recommendations and framework plans for the Regional Center and other PGIAs.
