Re: Likelihood of Fulop Getting Reelected

yes, he could be photographed disoriented with only a towel on his front porch and get re-elected. then 4 years later when asked about it, instead of not commenting, come up with a lame explanation, that will be pounced on by his opponents and lose ... so looks like we are stuck with crappy government for another 4 years.

He will get re-elected. Though I have heard rumors that Yun might challenge him.

what will likely happen after the reval - there will be a be spotlight on city spending and continued tax abatements coming from home owners (mostly, but not all downtown).

Exactly. So, it should come as NO SURPRISE that this administration will do ANYTHING possible to put off the reval until after the election happening later this year. Once re-elected, the administration would be more likely to survive the repercussions of the reval by weathering the criticism and fallout until the next election in 2021.

I believe it could be phased over 3 years which JC Together recommended. They also supported legislation to extend to 5 years. But, the city will have delayed close to 4 more years, achieving similar effect. And once the city committed and engaged a reval firm, it now has failed to finalize the tax maps (which work should have been initiated back in May).

While a phase in would appear reasonable, the city has willfully delayed it at every turn. Does it make sense to further delay?

Re: Fulop ties to Kushner?

Home away from home


https://www.bloomberg.com/news/feature ... llow-inmates-into-company

The Kushners and their partners in Jersey City, the KABR Group, also quietly became major financial backers of Progressive New Jersey Inc., a nonprofit that Fulop’s allies helped set up in 2014 to promote worker safety and other issues. Although the group does not disclose its donors, two people involved with the organization said that members of the Kushner-KABR partnership made a $100,000 donation. (A Kushner spokesman declined to comment on the donation.) Last year, when the mayor was publicly mulling entering the New Jersey governor’s race, Progressive New Jersey made a $400,000 contribution to a pro-Fulop political action committee. After a public outcry, that donation was returned.

Those moves came as the Fulop administration has been negotiating possible subsidies for the Kushner projects. Although Fulop has been critical of using taxpayer funds to underwrite developers, Jersey City has been in discussions with the Kushners and KABR to provide $10 million in redevelopment area bonds to help finance the project, according to documents filed with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.

Mayor Fulop’s office said he was unaware that the Kushners had employed his chief strategist to work on development projects in the city or donated to Progressive New Jersey Inc. Jennifer Morrilli, his press secretary, said Fulop had never received financial support from the Kushners. Any requests the Kushner companies make for tax abatements or bond subsidies will be decided strictly according to city policy, Morrilli said. KABR didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Jersey City bike group pushes for Grand Street redesign

Jersey City bike group pushes for Grand Street redesign
Asks City Council for protected bike lanes, “road diet” for pedestrian & overall safety

JERSEY CITY, Dec. 13 – Grand Street, a vital but dangerous arterial road, should be the first in the city to be redesigned as a truly Complete Street, the advocacy group Bike JC said today, asking the city government to support their plan.

The nonprofit group’s proposal, dubbed Grand Street Vision, would implement a “road diet” on the busy street, reducing its four existing lanes to three. This is an increasingly common redesign method proven to greatly improve safety for all road users—especially pedestrians—by calming motor traffic, reducing excessive top speeds and curbing reckless driving. A road diet was recently implemented nearby on Hoboken’s Observer Highway.

In the space saved, the Grand Street plan would install physically separated, protected bike lanes—also increasingly common in New York and large cities, but also already in use in Hoboken, Newark, and other small and midsize cities, with construction underway in Secaucus. The plan also calls for pedestrian-specific improvements such as “bumpouts,” which give more time and space to those crossing streets.

Bike JC members and supporters are planning to attend the Municipal Council meeting Dec. 14 in numbers, to demonstrate their approval, while several speakers are slated to address the project during the regular public comment portion of the meeting. Bike JC trustees testified Monday at the council’s caucus session; in response, the council agreed in principle to create a committee dedicated to such advanced road redesign projects.

The Grand Street Vision plan would greatly improve connections for cyclists between the many diverse and distinct neighborhoods along Grand Street, from Bergen-Lafayette to Exchange Place, as well as the waterfront bike/walk pathway, and Liberty State Park, long a haven for both recreational and racing cyclists. Exact designs and details of the plan have not been determined; Bike JC is trying to build community and government support for the project as a concept.

Bike JC has been gathering grassroots support for Grand Street Vision proposal since June of 2015, and has collected over a thousand signatures on petitions supporting it, mostly from people living on and around Grand Street.

JERSEY CITY -- Two months after the citywide property revaluation was set to begin in earnest, home inspections have been delayed as city and state officials work to finalize the city's tax maps.

City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said she could not estimate when inspectors would start looking at homes. Morrill said after a contract was approved in September for an appraisal company that will conduct the reval, "the state requested amendments to the tax maps."

The state Treasury confirmed the maps are an issue.

this article says it all -

http://www.vox.com/the-big-idea/2016/ ... ncrease-safety-traffic-us

Why America’s roads are so much more dangerous than Europe's

A jump in traffic fatalities over the past two years has brought well-deserved media attention to this tragic aspect of American life. Such deaths are up 7 percent in 2015, and 10 percent for the first six months of 2016 — a phenomenon news outlets are describing as “surprising,” “sudden,” and “unexpected,” an unpleasant departure from the historic trend toward greater safety. We are on track to kill 38,000 vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians in 2016.
The Big Idea logo This piece is part of The Big Idea, a section for outside contributors' opinions about, and analysis of, the most important issues in politics, science, and culture.

The White House has issued a call to action, asking researchers to scrutinize the data on all road deaths. Officials there appealed to the public as well for ideas about combating distracted, drunken, and other dangerous driving.

Attention to traffic death is long overdue, but to focus on the recent increase means missing a much bigger point.

Even before that spike upward, per capital traffic fatalities in the US were already the highest in the industrialized world. No other developed country tolerates the level of carnage on their roads that we do. This national failure has been overlooked for far too long. Studying short-term variations in our safety record is important, but it can also distract us from investigating the forces contributing to our horrendous safety record compared to our peers.

The Dutch also developed the concept of “self-explaining” roads, especially for rural areas. These have design features that are consistent with the speed appropriate for the location: Curves, medians, bike lanes, and roundabouts nudge the driver toward a given speed.

In the US, in contrast, standard engineering practice calls for wide, straight streets in almost all situations. This approach prompts inappropriate speeds that we then try to correct after the fact with speed bumps, police speed traps, and a bunch of remedies that would not be needed if streets were designed appropriately in the first place.


I for one, believe that jersey city has been dragging its feet.

yes, I realize that as a city we have hard time just trying to tie our shoes, but one has to try and try everything.

a city has to do everything, do a good job protecting residents from crime, pollution, and flooding, educate most of our children, protecting our homes from crime and fire, clean our streets and provide sanitation, recreation and other cultural experiences, and of course economic growth and manage development/redevelopment. and all the while while providing a safe environment for car drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians

it can't do just one, it must do all. and Bike JC believes that a protected bike lane is another piece in the big puzzle to make Jersey City a good place to live, work, visit and invest.

Dan, without enforcement no amount of engineering like stop signs and separate lanes will keep cyclists and pedestrians safe. Most accidents involving bikes happen with turning vehicles in the intersection rather than midblock, correct? If they speed and won't stop at signals and signs because they know they will never be ticketed, no one is safe, no matter whether they're in a car, on a bike or walking.

My family and I cycle too, though perhaps not as much as yours, but I see engineering as a solution that comes AFTER you enforce the law and see what needs tweaking. It's like getting a guard dog without having tried actually locking your door.

Of course the the bike lanes need to be connected into a network and double parking needs to be addressed. Bike JC has raised and advocated on these issues continuously and relentlessly. And I also have full confidence that our city planners are capable of and educated to design and implement a bike lane system and a protected bike lane. Its done all over the the country and the world.

Short of Bike JC implementing it their selves what is there left to do?

Same goes for Brewster comments, and I believe the idea is to change the physical environment to reduce the need for enforcement. Note that if one looks at the proposed design (over on Facebook) there are three traffic lanes not two.

Funny... while Bike JC is lobbying for protected bike lines, cyclists like me are just hoping for a comprehensive, rational bike lane plan that doesn't consists of haphazardly placed bike lanes that start and stop suddenly and which do not join or connect with other lanes.

I am not shitting on their plans (and, I am glad someone is advocating for the interests of cyclist in JC) but let's get real... we need to come up with a bike lane plan that makes sense, and then get it implemented and, most importantly, we NEED ENFORCEMENT! The bike lanes along Grove Street are a joke; they have become the protected, safe "double parking" zone of JC. And, to be honest, I just don't think a bike lane along Grand Street will be ANY different than the existing one on Columbus, which starts/end randomly in the middle of that road.

Complete Streets - Bike JC's Grand Street Vision
#21
Home away from home
Home away from home


Bike JC asks for your support in the creation of Jersey City's first protected bike lane on Grand Street.

Motor vehicular, cycling and pedestrian traffic has dramatically increased in Jersey City over the last few years, particularly on Grand Street. As Bike JC looks to expand upon the existing bike-lane network, we understand the need to install protected bike lanes on our busiest roads. Bike JC's vision begins with Grand Street.

Grand Street runs through several neighborhoods and serves as a connection to major routes and highways. Grand Street also borders the entrance to Liberty State Park for many Jersey City residents and is lined with multiple schools, community centers, houses of worship, commercial and residential districts and the Jersey City Medical Center.

Protected bike lanes have proven to be the best tool for encouraging an increase in cycling among the majority of people who are interested in getting around by bike but are concerned about safety. Protected bike lanes are safer for cyclists, create increased awareness and reduces speeding amongst drivers, increase safety at intersections for pedestrians and cyclists and have proven to dramatically reduce the number of cyclists who ride on sidewalks.

A recent study of protected bike lanes in the US and Canada proves how effective protected bike lanes are throughout both countries and staunchly supports Bike JC's Grand Street Vision. We ask that residents, businesses, schools, houses of worship and the representatives of Jersey City join in our vision and support the creation of Jersey City's first protected bike lane on Grand Street.

JERSEY CITY MUNICIPAL QUESTION #1

Should the Charter of the City of Jersey City, governed by Mayor-Council Form C, be amended as permitted under that plan, to provide for the holding of its regular, non-partisan municipal elections on the same date of the general election in November, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:69A-34.1(b)?

JERSEY CITY MUNICIPAL QUESTION #2

Should the Municipal Council of the City of Jersey City establish a Municipal Open Space, Recreation and Historic Property Preservation Fund, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:12-15.7 to be funded at a rate not to exceed $0.02 per $100 of assessed valuation of each annual tax levy commencing with the first tax quarter for calendar year 2017 and used exclusively for the acquisition, development and maintenance of lands for recreation, conservation and historic purposes?

INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT

The purpose of this non-binding referendum vote is to ascertain the voters’ opinion concerning whether or not the City of Jersey City should establish its own Open Space Preservation Trust Fund to fund the acquisition, development and maintenance of recreational, conservation and historic lands. The annual yearly rate would be $0.02 per $100 of assessed valuation, meaning that a property assessed at $100,000 would pay no more than $20 per year to the Open Space Preservation Trust Fund.

Vote Yes on Jersey City Public Question 2

Establishment of a Local Open Space Trust Fund

On Election Day, November 8, 2016 the voters of Jersey City will have a lot to consider both on a National and local level through a series of very important ballot questions.

The Jersey City Parks Coalition has advocated for the creation of a Municipal Open Space, Recreation and Historic Property Preservation Fund to create dedicated funding for our municipal parks, open spaces and preservation of our historic resources. It is a non-binding referendum which means the City is gauging the residents’ willingness to pay a small amount of money directed specifically to improve, repair, develop and acquire open space and parks and the preservation of historic structures.

JERSEY CITY PUBLIC QUESTION 2 - ESTABLISHMENT OF A LOCAL OPEN SPACE TRUST FUND

Should the Municipal Council of the City of Jersey City establish a Municipal Open Space, Recreation and Historic Property Preservation Fund, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:12-15.7 to be funded at a rate not to exceed $0.02 per $100 of assessed valuation of each annual tax levy commencing with the first tax quarter for calendar year 2017 and used exclusively for the acquisition, development and maintenance of lands for recreation, conservation and historic purposes?

Much like what’s being proposed here, Hudson County voters approved a countywide open space trust fund in 2003 that is expected to bring in $20 million this year (that tax is one cent per $100 of assessed value). In Jersey City, the fund was used to expand Boyd McGuiness Park, rehabilitate soccer fields at Caven Point, fund the creation of Berry Lane Park and more.

Over the last 10 years numerous Coalition Projects were funded through HC Open Space Funding bringing over $500,000 of improvements to these Jersey City parks and historic sites:

Historic – Pershing Field: The America Triumphant statue and the Fourth Regiment Arch were restored
Parks – Van Vorst Park: Children’s Sprayground in conjunction with Green Acres Funding
Historic – The Historic Harsimus Cemetery: Preservation of the Gate Keepers home/structure
Parks – Village Park: The full rehabilitation of the abandoned First Street Park

Since 1988, the United States has seen 2,524 ballot initiatives approving new taxes for open space, according to the Trust for Public Land. 1,902 have passed. As of last November, voters have approved open space trust funds in 237 New Jersey municipalities and all 21 counties. The only municipality in Hudson County with its own open space trust fund is Hoboken, approved by voters in 2007. The ballot initiative was passed 62 to 38 percent. The two-cents-per-$100 tax led to an expected $2.24 million this year.

To levy the tax after voters have approved a ballot question, the county or municipal governing body must adopt an ordinance that establishes the dedicated tax, sets up a separate trust fund to hold the tax proceeds, and states the purposes for which they may be used, as proposed in the ballot question. Full public disclosure and a review of all expenditures would be required and only used for identified purposes. Another advantage would be that the City becomes eligible for a greater match of funds through the State Green Acres program and other public & private sources maximizing the City’s investment.

A YES vote assures that in the future old and dying trees in our parks will be readily replaced, park equipment will be repaired quickly and updated periodically, parks will be kept safe and usable for everyone. There will even be funds available for historic preservation of significant Jersey City structures and sites. It’s up to you. Make certain to vote on November 8th and let’s keep Jersey City parks and historic sites the best they can be for many future generations.

in a presidential year, we can go to the polls for the general election in November (previously school board in the following April), municipal elections, municipal runoffs, primary elections then another general elections (for governor). that was 6, now 5 times with in a year to go to the polls.

in theory, the no arguments may have validity, but in reality more people and more minorities will vote. noting there are always exceptions and outlier elections.

so, well said.

How about a reduced number of times that one must go to the polls? There are plenty of people who have to arrange their work schedules to fit that in. That's a MAJOR benefit. Additionally, moving it will result in increased participation because more people show up on a November election date. It's cheaper for the city to have a reduced number of election dates for those concerned with the city budget. Shall I go on?

local enforcement is a local MUNICIPAL issue and falls under the mayor and his appointees. if the mayor does not get on board, nothing happens.

and the crowd sourcing (where do you want a stop sign or speed bump) might have been a start, but what good is a stop sign nailed to a telephone pole if not enforced.

changing the physical environment (complete streets) is a piece that also pretty much starts at the mayor's level like does enforcement.
