Re: New Tax Rate is Insane!

Just wait until the third year when the business tax max out at $80 million and the rest will be pass on to local property owners, minus tax abated and rent control buildings. This is a seven year phase-in period. The schools are actually short $200 million.

I have nothing to do with Airbnb nor did I run for city council on this subject. As I said before, there is something seriously wrong with you, Nick.

When Cotter spoke in 2015 it was Fulop speaking. Nothing has changed. Traditional zoning has been tossed for a new way of getting it done. Nothing need be codified if its stamped with the city seal. Unless challenged in a court it stands ala the Kushner case where Fulop reneged on an abatement because his very good friend Jared is Trumps son-in-law. It was a totally manufactured event for the public eye. "Would'nt look good to my constituents if I was nice to Trumps family" Of course he said just a few years ago, lost on everybody, that the "Trump brand is a good thing for any American city."

BL: The new era of development standards was announced to the world at the CTBUH conference ,2015, in NYC. Planning Director Cotter proclaimed " taller buildings, no height limit"; the traditional zoning code from the 1920's has been left behind." JC was a platinum sponsor of the event, gave tours to dozens of developers. Fulop was there in NYC to speak...later denied knowing anything about it...Zoning & Planning Boards uninvited etc., etc. & so forth... So I know from where I speak !

BL: Like Duuu-uuuhh!! Talking Light Rail don't pull no gravy. Nonsense...Every piece of property in JC or Bayonne or any city
nearby has escalated in value several times over. The Board of Ed building at Claremont & West Side is in the midst of SOHO, Bayfront, NJCU with H-U-G-E parking lots with the potential of "by right" ability to create 100 story towers. There's no zoning left in Jersey City only redevelopment plans that are tailored to the individual developer. The gravy train is roaring through!

$ 16 Million for a vacant lot and the JC Bd of Ed is selling their 7 story, solid building, plus huge parking lots, next to a Light Rail Stop for a paltry $ 6 Million which the city bought 25 years ago for $ 9 Million. Let's see how this is explained.

There was many funeral homes downtown but they did not have adequate parking, when McLaughlin opened up, it took away their business due to their parking. Now I wonder how long, they will last. Greenville and Riotto still have adequate parking. I still remember of friend telling me his relative got a boot on their car when they came to a downtown funeral home to attend a wake.

If the city would create municipal garages throughout this city, you would not see citizens turning on each other. When I record a neighborhood meeting the same issue comes up. The need for more parking.

While I have already raised my children I can pass on some advice. Do not try potty training until your child can go the night without an accident. Once they are able to do that, it takes less than a week. When? They were ready at age 2.

The year after Hoboken had its revaluation, many of the local citizens went to the freeholders' meeting. I happen to be there for another reason. I heard those Hoboken citizens complain that the are now paying more taxes to the county than to the City of Hoboken. After they finished talking, freeholder Bill O' Dea started to cut the budget. So now that Jersey City ratable base climbed from $6 billion to $34 billion, I am guessing a higher county tax bill.

I saw a list once of people gays said historically are gay, including in that list was Abraham Lincoln. Well, in the 1800s, there were no motels and hotels so when people travel, it was common for innkeepers to place men in the same room as other men. I read many 18th and 19th century stories of travelers. Most people actually had rooms available above taverns. So anyone who traveled across this country and rented a room shared the same room and bed with another traveler. Now gays are saying all of these people are gay. Actually, many families in the 18th and 19th centuries had a family bed because they could not afford anything else. But history will be rewritten to accommodate the gay agenda.

Re: Spotlight On: Affordable housing

What is silent from this conversation is the tax liens that happens every year. This past December 6,700 properties were in tax lien. Did all lose their property? No, about 2/3 were able to come up with the money. But these people are struggling because they are paying the taxes for others. Compare our taxes liens to Secaucus which does not promote affordable housing. That town had 13 tax liens, but I will grant it is a smaller town, if it had the same population as JC, that would be 200 people in lien. So where is the affordable housing for the small homeowner? What isn't that part of the conversation? It is not because someone must pay the tab.

Several years ago, there was a Jersey Journal article on the loss of taxes not collected from abatements, then the loss was $80 million a year. So, what will be the loss with new affordable housing? The public should be told. The public is told what ingredients go into a can of soup or the fabrics of our clothes, so why hide the information on the cost of affordable housing?

Vacant land requires few services but people do require services: more police, more fire stations, roads, schools, parks and more public employees to handle services. Then there is the infrastructure for water and sewerage. Actually, in the Mount Laurel decision, there was a cost analysis of what new construction will cost that town. Then the township back in the 1980s had a cost of $35,000 for every new resident. That figure will probably be triple today. For JC, the immediate concerns is education. How do we pay for more schools and teachers with influx of families especially in Bayfront which expects 10,000 more residents. By the way, Bayfront will cost JC homeowners a bond of $170 million and that does not include the interest over the next 20 years.

How can you have affordable housing when taxpayers paid $909 million to the county, school, and city governments in 2018? The way affordable housing is done is by passing off low income housing taxes onto the general tax paying homeowner who does not have a tax abatement. But that makes housing more expensive for that group of property owners. It is the equivalent of having a restaurant and charging one group a lower price, then inflate the price for another group to cover the group who had the reduced meal. Down the road, someone will pay the tab.

Those are partisan numbers, there are people in JC that has 2 or more cars. There are few if any buses and light rail covers a fraction of this city. In fact, there were more buses in the 1960s and 1970s than there are today.

In 2018, taxpayers forked over $909 million to the city, school and county. The only way to have affordable housing is the push the responsibility of taxes from one group on to another group. The other way is to cut spending, but that is not going to happened. The city should be honest and tell taxpayers what it would cost residents on their next tax bill what affordable housing will cost them. Nothing is free, someone will pay the expense.
