JERSEY CITY -- Taking another swipe at President Trump, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop yesterday issued an executive order declaring all bathrooms in municipal buildings to be gender neutral, a signal of support for the transgender community.

Fulop's order requires a sign at any bathroom maintained by the city saying, "Gender diversity is welcomed here; please use the restroom that best fits your gender identity or expression." The two-page document is the 41st executive order of Fulop's administration.

No tax hike in $572M 2017 Jersey City budget

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council last night unanimously introduced a $572 million budget for 2017 that comes with no municipal tax hike.

In a statement, Mayor Steve Fulop credited an increase in hotel tax collections, municipal court fines and revenue from tax abatements for the steady tax rate. This is the third year in a row municipal taxes are not expected to rise.

The city will now move to the budget hearing stage, when department directors will appear before the council to explain their spending requests for the year. The budget isn't usually formally adopted until at least the summer.

Heated debate over $276M Liberty Science Center expansion plan

JERSEY CITY -- Hundreds of people filled the City Council chambers tonight as the council mulled whether to approve a transfer of 12 acres of city-owned land for the creation of a $276 million science and technology complex near Liberty Science Center.

In one of the most contentious public debates in recent memory, dozens of speakers spent hours praising the project, called SciTech Scity, or condemning the city's plan to give the land for a nominal fee. More than two hours after tonight's public hearing began, the line of speakers waiting to air their thoughts stretched about 15 people deep.

SciTech Scity, a new arm of Liberty Science Center, would include labs, conference rooms, a hotel, residences for visiting scientists and a K-12 public school. Mayor Steve Fulop has said it would be "a landmark for the region."

SCI: Illegal dirt dumpers posing as recyclers

, Staff Writer, @jpillets Published 2:33 p.m. ET March 22, 2017

In Jersey City, for example, mob related entities connected to the soil recycling business thrived during the construction of a  golf course financed by the Hudson County Improvement Authority.

The SCI's probe turned up information  that resulted in the successful federal prosecution of two individuals charged in a scheme to extort thousands of dollars from companies doing business with the authority. One of the individuals convicted, New Jersey dirt broker James Castaldo, had a documented history as a member of the DeCavalcante crime family dating back to the early 1990s.

Castaldo, who last year was sentenced to 51 months in federal prison for bribery and conspiracy, made tens of thousands in profit merely by accepting unwanted construction fill and debris, investigators said. But under current New Jersey law, he wasn't even subject to a background check before he set up shop recycling soil.

"Without at least this change in the statutory framework, criminal elements will continue to profit from polluting at will,'' investigators said.

JERSEY CITY -- A Jersey City police officer will spend three years in prison and be forced to turn in his badge after being sentenced for leaving the scene of a 2015 accident in Weehawken that left a man in a coma

Patrolman Jermaine Gonzalez, 34, of Weehawken, was off duty when he struck Firas Natsheh, 43, of North Bergen, on Hackensack Plank Road on July 2, 2015. Natsheh, who remains in a coma to this day, was walking with traffic but was not on the sidewalk or within a crosswalk, police said. 

"The whole case was very tragic," said Gonzalez's attorney, John Lynch, today. "It was an accident that resulted in a man suffering serious injuries and he remains in a coma. On the other hand, because Jermaine left the scene, he forfeited his carrier as a police officer and is going to prison."

JERSEY CITY -- The developers behind the first tower in the Journal Squared project celebrated the opening of the 53-story high-rise today, saying the "bold and beautiful" building will transform the area.

The first residents begin moving into the tower's 538 luxury apartments tomorrow. Jonathan Kushner, of KRE Group, which is behind the three-tower project, said KRE has leased about 100 apartments since the leasing office opened a week ago.

The $204 million tower is Journal Square's first skyscraper, the first of five high-rises planned for around the PATH hub. A sixth is planned for across Sip Avenue, on the site of the old Jersey Journal building.

Fulop: Trump’s proposed budget would cost Jersey City $9.6M in HUD funding

HUDSON COUNTY VIEW - B John Heinis -

“With these budget cuts, the President is turning the back the clock and reversing years and years of progress that has been made in cities like Jersey City, Newark and across the country,” Fulop said in a statement.

“He is cutting programs we know are having a positive impact in urban areas, whether by turning a vacant building into a home or providing job training for the unemployed. These are investments in communities and investments in people.”

The mayor also called the proposal “draconian” and overlooks the positive impact HUD has in urban communities.

Critics assail Jersey City plan to give land to Liberty Science Center

JERSEY CITY -- A plan to give 16 acres of city-owned land to Liberty Science Center for a planned $276 million science center, school, hotel and residential development is being jeered by critics who say the deal amounts to a giveaway of a valuable city asset.

The plan, which will clear a major hurdle at next week's City Council meeting before moving on to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency, would allow SciTech Scity, a new arm of Liberty Science Center, to purchase the now-vacant land for $10 in what the city is calling a long-term partnership that will benefit the city "forever."

The 16 acres, formerly home to a city car impound lot, is located on Phillip Street adjacent to LSC.

Largest Public Storage Location Makes Debut

COMMERCIAL PROPERTY EXECUTIVE - by Adriana Pop

Jersey City, N.J.—Public Storage has celebrated the completion of its newest and largest storage facility in the country.

Public Storage at 133 2nd St., in Jersey City, N.J., opened its remaining units and now offers a total of 3,978 units, the most under one roof at any of the company’s facilities.

Located in the Powerhouse Arts District neighborhood, the new business received the support of the community. To celebrate the project’s completion, Public Storage will host a grand opening Saturday, March 25, offering celebratory cake and a chance for neighbors to meet.

Public Storage, the largest storage company in the nation, renovated a 100-year-old, block-long building to create the self-storage offering that first opened its doors in February, with just under 300 available spaces.

A drone video of the location and neighborhood shows how Jersey City is growing, expanding and revitalizing.

‘Tech village’ clears council

Liberty Science Center will pay city for 17 acres of land

by Al Sullivan  Reporter staff writer - Mar 12, 2017
The City Council decided at its caucus meeting March 6 to transfer about 17 acres of city-owned property to the Jersey City Redevelopment Authority (JCRA) for a proposed new tech research and residential village near Liberty State Park.

An ordinance will authorize the land transfer to the JCRA, which in turn will give the land to the Liberty Science Center (LSC) for the construction of the new $280 million project. It will feature a biotech lab, a coding lab, a technology business incubator, and a K-12 STEM-focused school, as well as a scholar’s village with residences for visiting scientists.

Some council members continued to have reservations about giving the land to the JCRA before knowing what its actual value is. David Donnelly, executive director of the JCRA, assured the council that the city would be compensated for the land after it has been assessed, prior to the closing on the property.

JC mayoral election 8 months away: Political Insider

Posted on March 11, 2017 at 7:07 AM

THE JERSEY JOURNAL - By Agustin C. Torres

As one Jersey City mayoral candidate has reminded me, we're only eight months away from the Jersey City municipal election and there seems to be no pre-fight hype. Heavyweight challengers ain't on the card, and there's little "hate-the-incumbent-because ..." material that is sticking to the wall.

All this means is that we can expect an amplification of hysteria, finger-pointing and self-promotion from announced and yet-to-surface candidates for mayor and the City Council. Any noise will at least allow for headlines and folks like yours truly to poke the bears in government caves and excite the torch- and pitchfork-bearers on Grove Street.

This is the first year in this century that city residents will vote for their local leaders in November, and you would expect that a general election that is also a gubernatorial race will bring big crowds to voting booths. I have my doubts.

The surprise party, the brainchild of ex-school board member and former Fulop ally Ellen Simon, was an effort to convince the council to vote down the abatement, a 20-year deal for a 63-unit building planned for Bennett Street.

Mayor Steve Fulop announced last night that the new, 30,000-square-foot station will replace the 126-year-old police precinct on Seventh Street. Fulop last week announced the city plans to build a new station in the Heights too.

Unlike that plan, the city's proposal for the new Downtown police station would not involve taxpayer funds. Developers chosen to transform the old Emerson Radio factory on Coles Street into residential housing would build the station on the property at their cost.

Hudson County jail population dropping under bail reform

JERSEY CITY -- The population at the Hudson County jail has dropped by 20 percent since implementation of the Bail Reform and Speedy Trial Act on Jan. 1, with its presumption that nearly all defendants are to be released without monetary bails pending trial.

On Dec. 31 there were 1,583 inmates at the jail in Kearny and by Feb. 28 the population had dropped to 1,270, Hudson County spokesman James Kennelly said, adding that the numbers include some Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees housed there.  

"It's hoped the drop in the population at the jail will reduce overtime costs there," Hudson County Freeholder Bill O'Dea said.
