EAST ORANGE, NJ – In an effort to promote additional economic development, enhance the local tax base, and create new jobs, City of East Orange representatives -- led by Mayor Lester E. Taylor III and Second Ward Councilman Romal Bullock, Chair of the Redevelopment Committee -- will travel to Las Vegas to attend RECon, the annual global conference sponsored by the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC). This annual event draws over 35,000 attendees at the largest retail real estate event in the world to seek out potential private partners and development opportunities for their communities.

ICSC’s RECon is an opportunity like no other if you are trying to create or encourage any type of retail real estate development in your community,” said Mayor Lester E. Taylor III. “This event could be a game changer for East Orange and we are excited about further diversifying our retail investments to fulfill the expanding needs of our residents and to generate more revenue for the city.”
