thats becuase you arent a section 8.
they get back yards and free parking right in front of their unit. if you want a street parking permit you cannot have one. and most certainly will have to pay for it. becuase you dont deserve it. HAHAHAHAHAHAHa

Re: New tax bill

that just depletes your escrow account.
speaking from experience. my wife and I bought then the tax increase happenned. they actually didnt tell anybody about it.
the raise depleted my escrow account in 6 months.

then the bank told me i had to have a minimum balanace in my escrow account, and I had to cough up 5k.

the tax increase is a joke. its way for the city exploite the new people moving in. most people at this point paying the tax increase are new people investing in the city. reval STILL in progress for all others. what a JOKE.

The only saving gracea bout JC is the property values went up significantly in the past 5 years. However, that will end becuase the city now has their hands in that cookie jar.

Taxes are added to your mortgage, the higher the taxes the more the mortgage. Therefore logic dictates if the taxes go up
property values go flat. that combined with mortgagew rate increase the tax hike could actually make property values go down.

again, what a joke. JC is the worst place i have ever lived.

I had a similar issue with generators at st bridgets church.
i contacted the city via the online "complaint" service.
i beleive you can access it from the .gov website.

if you phrase it politely and explain the situation, they will look into for you and reply.

St. bridgets was running a genrator for heat, and this did not apply to the electricity rule. the generators were gone about a week after my notice to them.

Re: City To Conduct First Property Revaluation Since 1988

Everything you said is correct, My terminology was incorrect in a sense that the conversion created an increase in taxes.
That was my "reval"
I sure dont expect to see another 194% increase in my taxes.

However, I guess the point of the story is that wells fargo failed to tell the purchasers that there was going to be tax increases, and mislead people back in 2008.

for anybody looking to buy now, make sure the bank is evaluating what the taxes WILL be not what they are pre assement.

Lastly, i dont have a problem with my taxes going up,
I have a problem with them going up 194%

the city should be ashamed of themselves, its their responsibilty to have taxes increases or decrease in a marginal trend. They as a municipality screwed up with not maintaing the valuations and now they are springing this massive tax on everyone. SHAME ON THEM!

I was a lucky one that had the extra capital for an 194% increase, But there are alot of new people in this town that dont.

Just a disclaimer for all those looking to move to the city. the taxes are comparable and reasonable. if you are buying here now just make sure the bank puts the right tax number in.

I and a few hundred other people fall into a bracket of purchasers back in 2008.

Im out..

Exactly,
In 2008 my wife and I negotiated a lease with wells fargo to purchase a home for 370,000.
After 1 year of living in the place with a mortgage of 2300 and 3,000 in taxes we were told by wells fargo that our escrow account was completely depleted and that we would need to put more money in it.
If i recall correctly we put like 7000 back in.

If you reference the attached link, not to blow my cover, but who cares im not so active, you will see that my taxes went up 194% from 2574 to 7566 between 2010 and 2011.

My taxes are paid through our mortgage, as a result of this reval my mortgage was increased by roughly 600 dollars/month.

So, if you say the reval numbers have not happened yet, they most certainly have for people that have moved in recently. we may be revaled again as part of this process but they seem to be in line with the revised tax expectations.

So there, the danger is not the people who have seen their property go up and dont want to pay there ratio in taxes, they can screw themselves.
its the people who bought very recently with an expected budget then find out they are getting an INCREASE OF @#%$&*^ 194%!!!!!!

Though you have what seems noble opinions, it is not exactly the way you think.

Taxes go up..they very rarely go down.
I have been recently looking to move and have been looking at two adjacent towns. one has significantly higher taxes than the other, and the only reason I can think of is that one is older - therefore the taxes have been increased a few more times.

Lastly,
The taxes are not high, well maybe a little high, its just the opposite. people's taxes pre Reval are TOO low.

The only thing that is rediculous is the interval by which the taxes were revaled...creating an obnoxious tax increase.
If they happen on an annual or bi annual increment in minimal amounts then they are easier to swallow.

There are plenty of options to keep your home,
as stated beofre the only people this screws are people who like me and my family. we moved in RECENTLY with a projected budget and mortgage, then the reval happenned and we have a lot higher mortgage. THAT SUCKS


But if you have lived here and have seen your property value increase and are still paying taxes for 1/10 your property value there are plenty of options to keep your home.

I had the same issue.
I moved into my home in 2008 and taxes were roughly 3,000 then I was revaluated and now my taxes are like 7 or 8. My mortgage went up $600 dollars. I understand this could have put us in the poorhouse.

that is an example of how this reval is screwing people.

BUT and this is a big BUT,
if you are one of those people who have seen your property value increase from ~300,000 to ~550,000 and your still paying 2-3,000 in taxes, you need to shut the #%$@ up!!

I totally agree,
the reduction in traffic could mean bike and running lanes would be easier to accomodate.

as a result we could increase the public image of jerey city.
we are already one of the most walkable cities how about one of the best cities for bikers too

great publicity.

I can see your concern,
nobody wants more traffic.
there are actually professionals who can do studies to predict the change in the flow of traffic.

But i dont really understand your comment.
How is creating a toll for people who circumevent the holland tunnel exit on 78 going to create more traffic.

People will stay on 78 and exit off the holland tunnel exit.
as the turnpike was designed to do.
Therefore creating less traffic.

the only thing we would see is more nice cars becuase those would be the only people who could afford the extra toll.

again i am not proposing residents or workers be tolled in any way.

No you did not read the thread right.
we are talking about a way to toll the non resident and non working people who decide to cicumvent Holland Tunnel Traffic.

to clarify by no means am i talking about tolling people who live or work in Jersye city.

I already pay pleant of tolls.

Its not unfeasible,
maybe a little compplicated.
and the revenue it would produce would pay for itself.

If you live downtown, during rush hour you can see backup blocks long at traffic lights going towards the tunnel.

This is something to think about for whoever can consider this. the revenue could go towards more trash cleanup, more police etc in the downtown neighborhoods.

Correction I meant Columbus Drive exit.
the toll would only be for people who exit at the columbus exit, then reach the hollan tunnel toll within a specific amount off time.

People who are exiting to go home or to work would not be affected.

Currently all the bus lines are exiting off of columbus then taking Marin to beat the traffic.

Meanwhile downtown is eating their fumes.

Toll at Exit 14C
#22

To Whom this may concern,

I currently leave from exit 14C everyday to go to work in New Jersey and see a significant amount of backup of cars exiting off of 14C.

There is no doubt that these drivers are avoiding Holland Tunnel traffic. I know this becuase if the holland tunnel is backed up the exit increases in exiters.

Has any authority considered having a toll there?
If the driver exits off 14C and then reaches the Holland Tunnel toll within a specific amount of time they are charged.

Proceeds would then go to Jersey city since we see increased traffic.

Just a thought. at the very least it would decrease traffic.
lets face it their not stopping at wonder bagel for breakfast.

Re: Eight candidates vying for three open seats on Jersey City Board of Education

Currently James Jay Ferris High school allows students to leave school for lunch.

As a result the surrounding neighborhoods are greatly affected.
Trash is thrown on the streets Private property is loitered on, drugs are done and fights break out.

It was mentioned to me that one of these candidates was platforming on changing this rule.

It is not common in ALL schools for kids to be allowed to leave for lunch. In this case it seems like it is more of a break for kids to go get high as opposed to get lunch.

Is there any way for the school to use this to their advantage.
For example. students with only a certain GPA from previous quarter are allowed out? Therefore giving kids an incentive to do well, and at the same time reducing the amount of "bad kids" from being able to run Havoc on the neighborhood.

Re: Jersey City's Ward E (Downtown) to lose some residents as ward boundaries are redrawn

Just a quick comment on how this has all panned out.

The committe that delegates where people have to vote has decided that all the people in ward F have to vote up in Journal Square.

This is a very unconevenient place for the new additions to ward F to vote and more than likely will greatly reduce their voter turnout.

So far I have to call out Michelle Massey as already not doing a very good job of representing the new constituents to the newly drawn ward F.

If I were a consiracy theorist I would wonder if this was approved because The councilwomen does not see the new areas ideals as matching the constituents she already has.

In summary,
The New Voters of Ward F are going to require a form of transportation to Vote, I wonder how that will effect voter turnout. Theres no way people are goijng to walk all the way up newark avenue at night to vote.

Thanks for looking out for us.

I just read my post like three times and nowhere is there a "Your or You're" .

So your saying that people who have taken no responsibility for their education, who have commited nothing to bettering themselves should be allowed to be pissed becuase people who have worked hard throughout their education and career are moving into their neighborhood.

Do you realize how close downtown Jersey city is to Manhattan? It is inevitable due to population growth that
the outskirts of manhattan are going to become more expensive and filled with young professionals.

Thats what NYC does it attracts young talented people.

Honestly, the amount of negativity towards middle class professionals in the title of this thread makes me want to puke.

Gentrification is a result of the city (manhattan) being too expensive for the average middle class professional.
Therefore people are forced to move to outer areas.

Its a trickle down effect, its not like these young professionals are millionares, shit their average middle class.

If you are displaced due to gentrification, try graduating from high school or college, then you would be able to afford the rent downtown. and if you like cheap dollar stores and tacky furniture there are plenty to choose from in other parts of jersey city.

Its terrible that the photo store is going out of business but the changes in downtown newark avenue and the stores that are coming are prgress due to people realizing jersey city is a nice place to live for everyone.

Lastly, Gentrification also means that one type of culture is being changed due to the influx of another culture.
If you look at the demographics of Jersey city can you please tell me which culture has rights over any other

There is absolutly no reason to have a car if you live in dixon mills.
the walk is under ten minutes, if you walk down wayne, which is nicer and calmer than colombus. some people even find it relaxing to walk since thier in a cubicle all day.

in addition the bus runs during commuter hours.
it is a little hard to catch in the afternoon but in the mornings it runs like clock work.

I did not have a car for two years after moving from Brooklyn.
It is by far the most bang for your buck, the streets are spotless becuase of maintenance.

In addition I work in jersey and drive, and my wife works downtown. it is a great area becuase I have the option to job search in NJ, jump right on the turnpike, exit 14 or take the path to the city.

In all honesty, JC does not even compare to the nightlife Hoboken can offer, but if your looking to have a few go to places to drink and a few to eat you will find jc satisfactory.

But it is still lacking a centralized fun zone.

You will hear different opinions of dixon mills no matter where you ask. However I can speak from personal eperoience, it is the best place to live if you are looking to meet young professionals in their 30-40s
Since moving in I have made alot of friends.
we often get togethor for parties and talk in the streets.

I know for sure that had I moved into an isolated brown stone I woulf never have met so many people in my neighborhood.

and to shut up all the haters and to ensure this thread does not go into a dixon mills bash please start another thread as this is about social issues.

All I have to say i when I had my family over for the first time we went to Marco Pepes. they have the "best Consistent" food out of any place I have been.

They have a great alcohal selection, however they are not really a bar.

Lighthorse etc, are down in Paulus Hook,
and as nice as that neighborhood is, its not exactly close to the grove stop, sorry guys but its true,
I would never be able to get my wife their in high heels without having to call a cab.

I did forget about Merchant and Bar majestic
oh and another Bar just opened up on Monmouth and Bright st called Brightside. They have great burgers and a nice bar. crowd seems to be growing there.
