Why vote for Ms. Coleman. There are two other people running for the position. Either one of them must be better qualified than Ms. Coleman. Anyone would be better qualified.

She said the same stuff when campaigning for WARD F council person and has been a complete bust. Non-Responsive. We have been without representation since she was elected.

"God forbid new residents who don't have a lengthy post history here should have an opinion too."

Rather it would seem that new residents might want to have an opinion based on the history that came with the issue. Then those residents opinions might carry some or more weight.

To have an opinion based not on fact, what is that then? Just some preconceived notion backed by lack of knowledge.

"Opinions can be persuasive, but only when the assertions they are based on can be said to be true."

You will need to call City Hall, the operator or the Residence Response office will have the cell phone number to give to you.

Apparently the Authority has had a problem with it's phones for over 4 weeks and there is no one in charge that can solve the problem.

This from an agency run by the second largest city in the state.

It is laughable if it was not so pathetic.

Re: Jersey City councilwoman to run for county register
#36
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Would this not be the second county job, if she won, she would have?

If she could not pay her bills after elected, why did she run in the first place? It's not like the part time job of council person's salary was a hidden fact.

Or did she just run so she could get these county jobs? The register job salary is over $100,000. That plus the salary of her other county job will now surely have her pay her bills.

This for a person who can not even represent her constituents.

We in Ward F downtown, have been without representation since she was elected.

The use of the word Failure would be a kind word to attach to Ms. Coleman.

PJ Ryan's is not a very good neighbor.

If anyone remembers the fight over the little back building ? when they brought out their big guns and call us as many nasty names as they could just a few years ago.

The only reason to support P J Ryan's would be some day support a new owner.

I would agreed with JC Biscuit

Chatted with a few people today who had the same thought, if this is a celebration about Downtown, then lets try to get the organizers to really include all of downtown and not just from Jersey Avenue down to the Path Plaza.

What about the businesses up Newark Avenue into the village. They are part of downtown and should also be included.

The police/traffic authority can plan to work together with the city to come up with a traffic route/plan for the day directing cars around Newark Ave to make it easy to get to and from the Holland Tunnel / Newport / Turnpike / etc.

The idea that the tents be on one side of the street sounds solid. Even if the tents alternated to the other side between streets. And even if the restaurants have their tents out in front, the many other tents could be placed is some sort of alternate fashion.

Opening up the street for a better flow of people would possibly encourage more people to stay longer and spend more money.

It is wonderful that the event is getting more successful, but it is also getting more claustrophobic.

As to the food trucks, certainly in the second largest city in NJ, ten local food trucks could be encouraged to participate. Love that Cinnamon Snail is back and thumbs up for the Taco Truck, but trucks from Brooklyn and Manhattan that have no ties except profit certainly doesn't speak to the All About Downtown...

Just a thought

We, the former residents of downtown Ward E, that were turned over to Ward F, have since the day Ms Coleman was elected, we formerly Downtown Ward E residents has been totally without representation. TOTALLY so.

Ms Coleman talked a good game prior to the election, attending all the pre-election meetings and walking the streets and giving the blah, blah, blah and then poof disappeared.

Was she only looking for that other job and as soon as she angled the job she was even more of a poof disappeared.

We, the former residents of downtown Ward E, are extremely pleased that Ms Coleman is not running.

She has been a total waste of a councilperson.

We are the ones who have been frustrated.

Forget Ms Coleman, she is a blimp that will soon be gone, gone, gone.

Kitchens were most often in the garden level of row houses. Most downtown were build as single residents. The food, etc. came up via dumb waiters that were generally located to the extreme left at the back of the house. The dumbwaiter was hidden behind either a regular looking door or panel that simulated the rest of the room. The houses were turned into multi-dwelling during the depression when there was a need for extra income.

maybe it is time for all downtown to band together to put a stop to development that increases more density without planned infrastructure, transportation, parking, parks and green spaces, etc.

BRIGHT STREET REDEVELOPMENT needs action
#56

Just received this information from the VVPA.

The information has also been uploaded to the Bright Street Facebook page and the Beautiful Jersey City facebook page.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Bri ... up/543397449043306?ref=hl

https://www.facebook.com/BeautifulJerseyCity


Bright & Varick Redevelopment Plan
Important UPDATE 9.5.13


We have been trying to gather the background and status of this project for the past month. There are numerous issues and unfortunately it took longer than anticipated, for various reasons, to get the proper facts.

The VVPA wrote a letter to the Mayor, City Council and the Planning Department which highlights the outrageous zoning that was approved for this site and requests that the redevelopment plan be reopened for re-examination and discussion.

There were meetings with city planning officials and the subcommittee. Basically we were told that an application has already been filed (on Aug 16th) and therefore changes in the zoning could not be done.

The developer is willing to meet with the community, but is under no obligation to change anything significant. Some members of the subcommittee were able to see the application at the planning office.

We are being told that currently the project has 87 residential units with no parking and a restaurant. The project is not expected to be presented to the Planning Board until October or November.

Here is some of the information we have:

Sept 2011 : This lot was considered by the planning office and the city as blighted and in need of redevelopment. It was presented and approved by the planning board and city council with little if any public input.

Nov 2011: Planning Board and City Council approve Redevelopment Plan with increased zoning standards with little if any public input.

Sept 2012: Presentation made to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency for high density Micro Unit Housing Project. Transcript of that meeting states the project will not be the recipient of any public funding, but will require a tax abatement.

Somewhere between then and now, the ownership of the property was transferred from the City of Jersey City to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency. As of Aug. 29th, this is still the case.

Aug 16, 2013 - Developer submitted plans to the Planning Office, however they were deemed incomplete.

Aug 30, 2013 - VVPA requests to reopen the redevelopment plan.

Some other things to note:

There is a similar lot, 28 Bright Street, which is also a redevelopment area and is being considered for increased density as well.

We have reached out to the school, PTA President and Principals of PS3 and MS4 to have them weigh in on the situation.

We have reached out to the Mayor and City Council to voice our concerns. So far the only thing offered was that the developer meet with the community to hear our concerns.

We have the letters and transcripts available if you would like to see them.

More action can be done by voicing your opinions to our local officials.


Steve Fulop: fulops@jcnj.org,


Diane Coleman (Ward F) dcoleman@jcnj.org

Rolando Lavarro (At large and Council President) rlavarro@jcnj.org

Danny Rivera (At Large) drivera@jcnj.org.

Candice Osborne (Ward E) candice@candiceosborne.com

Mayors Action Bureau http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/administration.aspx?id=1204


We can also start telling more neighbors of the potential issues with this development. We can also start petitions, flyers, etc...and if anyone knows a zoning attorney that would be helpful. There is power in numbers.

There are also opportunities for public comment at upcoming meetings in the city:

Council Meetings-Sept 11 & 19th (need to sign up first 201.547.5150)

Planning Board Meeting-Check www.cityofjerseycity.com for schedule

JCRA Meeting- Check www.thejcra.org for schedule and contact information

Come to our next VVPA meeting September 17th. We hope to have Council members Rolando Lavarro, Diane Coleman and Danny Rivera--both Rolando and Diane are on the JCRA Board. The developer for the site may present as well...will verify that soon.

VVPA




Please pass this around and let me know if there are other names to be added to the mail list.

Michele Massey

I love her slogan ?Together We Can? ? Do what??pretty much nothing I would suggest.

As another former Ward E and now Ward F resident, I can attest from first hand experience to Ms Massey?s absolute lack of immediate responsiveness unless one almost gets to the point of ?kicking? her in the you know what.

Ms Massey was totally useless during the last two elections when the Board of Election was getting everything screwed up as to who were the new Ward F residents and where we were to vote and how to get the problem solved.

As usual we all turned to Steve Fulop to get us the information we needed to get the screw up fixed up. If left to Ms. Massey none of our votes would have counted.

I can assure you, the impression a good many of us former Ward E people have of Ms Massey is all negative.
