Senate President Steve Sweeney attended the opening of the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) last night. The center is the result of a public-private partnership between DEVCO, Pennrose Properties, the City of New Brunswick, Middlesex County, the NJ Economic Development Authority, the New Brunswick Cultural Center, Rutgers University and the New Brunswick Parking Authority. “New Brunswick is a shining example of the good that can be done through public-private partnerships,” said Senator Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland). “This facility is going to have a massive impact on the city’s economy, creating jobs, attracting tourists and generating revenue. I hope NBPAC serves as a model of how public and private entities can come together to create groundbreaking, multiuse spaces through our state.” The NBPAC is a transformational project that has propelled New Brunswick’s Downtown Cultural Arts Districts into the spotlight as the region’s leading lifestyle hub for the performing arts.
