City Council seeks to expand Jersey City cannabis control board from 3 to 5 members

The City Council is looking to expand the three-member Jersey City cannabis control board to five members.

The city council introduced an amended ordinance to expand the cannabis control board to include two additional members, one appointed by the mayor and another appointed by the council president. The two selected to join the control board will serve three-year terms.

The cannabis control board is responsible for approving applications for cannabis retail establishments (wholesaler, manufacturer, cultivator and retailer), distributors and delivery. An amended ordinance, passed in August, established the control board, regulations and licensing for the cannabis industry in the city.

Opposition mounts to $4.7B plan to widen the highway to the Holland Tunnel

Jersey City officials and a coalition of Hudson County bike groups have opposed the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s plans to widen the Hudson County extension through Bayonne and Jersey City to the Holland Tunnel and replace the aging Newark Bay bridge.

The opposition is based on concerns the project won’t alleviate congestion and would create more traffic and air pollution from vehicles cutting through Bayonne and Jersey City neighborhoods when traffic backs up on the extension.

Hudson County voters, act in kind and turn your backs on Murphy | Jersey Journal non-endorsement

Hudson County voters should skip the top of the ballot this election and send a loud, clear message to Gov. Phil Murphy that his silence on the proposed Liberty State Park Protection Act is unacceptable.

Murphy apparently thinks the Democratic stronghold on the Hudson is a given – or, worse, inconsequential to his pursuit of a second term.

How else can you explain his refusal to endorse a piece of legislation that would protect one of the few green spots on the Hudson County map?

Jersey City Ward E city council race: Incumbent Solomon vs. Team Fulop challenger Hudnut

Jersey City’s Downtown Ward E is the largest and the wealthiest of the city’s six wards. With plenty of mass transit, developers are tripping over each other to build anywhere close to the city’s waterfront.

But there’s also overcrowding in the public schools and the ever-present fear that the working class will be priced out of Downtown.

With a population (69,320) that would make Downtown the 18th largest municipality in the state, the council race between incumbent James Solomon, seeking his second term, and Jake Hudnut, the city’s municipal prosecutor, has some added importance.

Jersey City council OKs measures to consolidate embankment properties into ‘redevelopment area’

A High Line-style park on the Sixth Street Embankment inched closer to becoming a reality after a vote at the Jersey City Council’s Oct. 14 meeting.

The council unanimously passed two resolutions packaging all the lots for the park together into one “redevelopment area,” meaning that the city will be in a better negotiating position in the ongoing fight for ownership of the former railroad tracks, according to Ward E Councilman James Solomon.

Construction Begins on Journal Squared's 60-Story Tower 3 in Jersey City

Thu October 14, 2021 - Northeast Edition

Construction has begun on the third and final tower of Journal Squared, a three-skyscraper, mixed-use development in Jersey City, N.J.'s historic Journal Square neighborhood.

Designed by HWKN Architecture and Handel Architects, each with offices in Manhattan, and developed by Jersey City-based Kushner Real Estate (KRE) Group and National Real Estate Advisors in Washington, D.C., the 60-story building will be made up of 600 rental apartments.

It follows the completion of the first two Journal Squared towers, in 2017 and early 2021, respectively.

In total, the three-tower complex will comprise 1,840 residences, 36,000 sq. ft. of dining and retail area, and a direct connection to the Journal Square Transportation Center. The facility provides access to NJ Transit and is a major stop on the PATH rail system, with service to lower and midtown Manhattan, Hoboken and Newark.

In Jersey City’s Wards B, C, and D, five political newcomers — Joel Brooks, Kevin Bing, Tom Zuppa, Danielle Freire and John Salierno — are vying for council seats, hoping to tap into frustration with rising rents, quality-of-life concerns, and the breakneck pace of development across the city.

Hotel Trades Council supports Solomon after endorsing most of Team Fulop in Jersey City

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

“Councilman Solomon has stood with the Hotel Trades Council and our members in some of our toughest fights in Jersey City. He was a tireless advocate against AirBnb’s proliferation of illegal hotels throughout the city and stood with us when we pushed back against their multi-million-dollar ballot initiative to overturn the city’s ordinance,” HTC President Rich Maroko said in a statement.

“Over the last four years, he has stood up for hotel workers and for all working-class people in Downtown Jersey City. Based on that track record, we know that we can count on Councilman Solomon to advocate for our members and for working people throughout Jersey City.”

KRE Group breaks ground on Journal Squared’s third tower, shows off second tower views

Principals from KRE Group and National Real Estate Advisors, LLC Tuesday marked two significant milestones at Journal Squared, the high-rise apartment complex with awe-inspiring views in Jersey City’s historic Journal Square neighborhood.

The development partners, along with Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, celebrated the five-month lease-up of Journal Squared’s 704-unit second tower and broke ground on the project’s third and final building, a 60-story high-rise comprising 600 rental residences.

Located at Pavonia and Summit avenues and with direct access to the Journal Square Transportation Center, the three-tower development will ultimately total 1,840 rental residences and 36,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space in 53-, 60- and 68-story buildings.

JAMES SOLOMON RELEASES FAR-REACHING ETHICS PLAN

 

Solomon: “We Can’t Ever Go Back To The Days When Jersey City Was a Punchline Because of Corruption”

 

JERSEY CITY, NJ –  Today, James Solomon released a far-reaching ethics plan that further tightens Jersey City’s rules and ensures a cleaner and ethical government. The plan includes reforming the Ethical Standards of Board, strengthening the city’s existing ethical codes and establishing yearly mandatory training for municipal employees. The Solomon plan comes a little over a decade after 44 New Jersey politicians and officials were arrested as part of a 10-year long anti-corruption investigation. Today, Solomon does not take any campaign contributions from Jersey City real estate developers and has been a reformer in the City Council focused on improving transparency.

Hudnut attacks Solomon over ‘out of touch perspective’ on policing in Jersey City

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

“We need to invest in 21st Century Policing techniques to continue the progress that has been made in making Jersey City safer, not pursue the devastating cuts to public safety that Councilman Solomon supports that would put our neighborhoods at risk,” Hudnut, who is running on Mayor Steven Fulop’s ticket, said in a statement.

“Defunding our police department and laying off officers like Councilman Solomon wants will not make us safer. We need to invest in de-escalation training programs, body cameras, and hiring more young, diverse officers who live in the neighborhoods where they work. Councilman Solomon’s plan for policing in Jersey City will do nothing to make our city safer and every resident should be alarmed by his out of touch perspective on this critical issue.”

Solomon proposes Jersey City ethics reforms to avoid being ‘a punchline because of corruption’

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

“We can’t go back to the days when Jersey City was a punchline because of corruption. This plan will continue to tighten our ethical rules so that people can keep building trust in our city’s government,” Solomon said in a statement.

“I am committed to the highest ethical standards, that’s why I don’t take any campaign contributions from Jersey City developers and why I’ve fought to make Jersey City government more open and transparent.”

In his plan, the Downtown councilman pointed out that it was just over a decade ago that the FBI arrested 44 officials as part of Operation Bid Rig and that corruption in Jersey City remains a concern.

Mayor Fulop: “Immigrants Are Part of Our Fabric”

 

Nationally Touted Division Hosts New Citizens

 

JERSEY CITYMayor Steven M. Fulop and Department of Health and Human Services officials will host the 3rd annual Immigrant Affairs Symposium on Friday, September 17th, 1-4 p.m., during National Citizenship Day ceremonies at Liberty State Park.

 

The City’s nationally recognized Immigrant Affairs Division hosts the symposium to celebrate the shared efforts of community organizations, nonprofits, and City services throughout 2020 and 2021, the third such since the office’s formation. During that span, the Division has been celebrated for its policies as second in the nation for welcoming and integrating immigrants, according to New American Economy Index.

 

“Being proud of the diversity of your given communities just can’t be a slogan; it has to mean something,” said Mayor Fulop. “In Jersey City, we have structured services to ensure immigrants are provided the types of services enabling them to become living and functional members of our community – so much so that their day-to-day lives become indistinguishable to those who were born and raised here.”

 

Today’s symposium followed the official oath-taking of 40 citizenship applicants hailing from 19 countries. Symposium speakers include Doaa Hussein, a Qatari asylee mother, and Reverend Hilario Crispin. Revered Crispin began his time in the United States as a new immigrant construction worker from the Dominican Republic to becoming a naturalized citizen who leads the Mercy for the Homeless mission at Fountain of Salvation Church in Jersey City.

 

“I have been blessed to be able to care for my loved ones in my adopted country,” stated Rev. Crisipin in his bilingual memoir, Turning Stones to Bread.

 

Over the past three years, the Division of Immigrant Affairs has achieved national acclaim by setting many milestones:

 

  • Jersey City is the only city in the nation to have a municipal office that provides free federally accredited immigration legal services to its immigrant residents.
  • Jersey City is the only city in the nation to have a city clinic that provides Civil Surgeon medical exams to refugees and asylees applying for their Green Cards.
  • Jersey City was awarded as one of 12 cities best at integrating immigrants in Covid-19 response.
  • The Division’s legal services focus is on citizenship applications and Green Card applications for lawfully admitted refugees and asylees
  • The Division is currently preparing immigration applications for some of Jersey City’s Afghan residents seeking a safe passage for their family in Afghanistan to the United States.
  • National notoriety for placing immigrant integration in the context of public health.

 

“The pandemic hasn’t just shown us that immigrants are overexposed and underserved, but it has brought to light just how those health disparities are devastating for all of us,” said HHS Director Stacey Flanagan.
