The Bloustein School honored the memory of the late Professor Donald Krueckeberg during the school year, launching a new doctoral conference in his name and dedicating a library of his books and scholarly research.
In April, eight PhD students detailed their scholarship at the first annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference in Planning and Public Policy, moderated by Professor Robert Noland and Assistant Professor Gabriella Carolini. The presentations covered issues such as legal impediments to reducing greenhouse gases retail food cooperatives, HUD’s Moving-to-Opportunity Program, historic patterns in urban redevelopment and eminent domain in Newark. The event opened with a retrospective on Dr. Krueckeberg’s contributions to planning by Professor Michael Greenberg, Faculty Fellow Stuart Meck, Professor Frank Popper, doctoral student Mi Shih, and Gwendolyn Harris, associate research director of the Walter Rand Institute.

Earlier in the year, Dean Hughes and Professor Greenberg joined with Professor Krueckeberg’s wife, Nancy Brannegan, in dedicating a Krueckeberg Library located on the second floor of the Civic Square Building. The library contains a collection of Dr. Krueckeberg’s books and scholarly research reflecting his interests in eminent domain, property theory and policy, and planning methods.
