The Local Redevelopment and Housing Law provides a municipality with a number of options for implementing a redevelopment plan. A municipality may serve as the redevelopment entity or may delegate this function to a municipal redevelopment agency, a municipal housing authority authorized to exercise redevelopment powers or a county improvement authority authorized to undertake redevelopment projects pursuant to the County Improvement Authorities Law, N.J.S.A. 40:37A-44 et seq.


Moreover, a municipality may delegate the redevelopment plan implementation function for some of its redevelopment areas (in the event it has more than one redevelopment zone) and retain this authority for other redevelopment areas. However, only one redevelopment entity may be responsible for a given redevelopment project.
