Other posters here who've been around much longer probably have more details. I only know because it was brought up in another thread. I believe it was an at-large seat.

See this thread: http://jclist.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=35098

You can see all of Yvonne's twisted justifications for refusing trees. You should thank her for all the empty tree pits and barren blocks you see around Downtown that could have had lovely canopies by now.

While on the topic of trees, how can I get more trees planted on my block? Seems like a few have died or been cut down and not replaced. I also see lots of empty sidewalk squares where a tree could go.


The lack of trees around Downtown is yet another Yvonne special. You can thank her for being actively hostile to having new trees planted and used her power when she ran the VVPA to prevent such.

Re: JC Street Sweep and Parking Petition!

I absolutely oppose this idea. We have a parking problem because of the significant increase in density. The City did not mandate developers to provide adequate parking. The increase in density necessitates more cleaning services. Reducing the amount of street cleaning will result in the City being filthy. Our taxes have just been increased. We should be getting at least the same amount of services, not less services. The City should come up with a better solution to the parking problem. I would propose that constituents with utility vehicles or larger SUVs should have to pay a larger annual fee for annual parking permits, Columbus Ave. should have residential permit parking for constituents instead of private entities and the City should reopen the pedestrian plaza between Erie and Barrow.


This post looks like it could have come from Yvonne, word for word. More irrational NIMBY garbage.

I don't even drive or own a car, but I support any change to make lives easier for ordinary residents. Plus, how much money will the city save from not having to deploy all these sweeping machines and employees? Those resources and be put toward better sanitation service, which would actually fix the problem of garbage in the streets.

If that's the case, when are they due? I've heard August 25th and I've heard others say 25 days from when you receive the bill. I can't pay the bill out of escrow without a physical bill.

you can do the same and start a pro-development organization by making a commitment and doing the work. my guess is that you have a vested interest in development (but I could be wrong, I could even know you.) and the general public would not buy in.

it should not be surprising that people who mostly like their neighborhood the way it is and only wish to see moderate development and growth would commit the time to participate and work together to that end.

I'm done with this thread after this reply. If you bothered to read the originally attached article, you can see the leader of the NA abused her power to smear and intimidate the very residents they claim to represent. This obviously goes both ways.

And no, I have no ties to developers or have any developer interests. I simply understand how economics and supply/demand works, which many people who run these groups and claim to be outraged by increasing costs of living do not. To say the general public would not buy in - our supposedly "pro-development" mayor won with almost 80% of the vote along with a strong city council majority. The general public made it clear which side the argument they support. You lost in a landslide, perhaps it is, in fact, possible *your* ideas are way out of step with the general public.

Once again, another smear perpetuated by these groups against people who dare disagree - anyone in favor of density must be a real estate shill. Let's not forget that by limiting the housing supply, property owners who run these groups benefit from the high property values resulting from it. And I'm not even going to get into parking.

Another bad classic, dog owners exercising their dogs at night on the equipment and sometimes the dogs relieves themselves on the equipment. It was the reason my children did not use the playground equipment in Van Vorst Park. Some of these classic bad things came from new neighbors.


You say that in regards to just about every issue Jersey City faces, be it parking, development, the Kaytn statue, street trees, bike lanes, millennials, new businesses, mass transit etc. etc. etc.

It also looks like my post struck a nerve, the VVPA website got updated for the first time in months today. Hey VVPA board members (they 100% read this forum), maybe start posting meeting minutes again and start being transparent with your community!

apparently you write whatever nonsense comes into your head.

VVPA has a website with all the dates and speakers for each meeting, emails meeting notices to the community about the meetings, has events all over the place. Meeting are held and have been for over 30 years in the same place and on the same 3rd Tuesday of the month.

Tonight a movie in the park.

I gather you live in a dank dark cave.



You mean this very website that hasn't been updated since May 10th? http://vvpa.org/

I am not at all privy to the intimate details of this situation, but here is the part that surprised me most: as I am reading the article, none of it came across as hard to believe. I can 100% see some of old timer feeling slighted over an "interloper" wanting to take a more active role in the local NA, and I can see this escalating to the point of being silly/ridiculous.

The truth is that there are a lot of tensions at the local NAs between old timers and recent arrivals. Most of the stuff plays out in the form of whispering and gossiping behind people's back and subtle, passive aggressive actions. A true shame, really.


The VVPA hasn't bothered to post meeting minutes in months and is keeping the community in the dark about it's actions. They've become even more militant and adept at squelching dissent to the point where even Donald Trump would be envious. I'll repeat, these are very flawed and undemocratic organizations in need of serious reform. They should not have the outsize influence on policy that they do.

"It’s unclear how relations between the four soured. The men told The Jersey Journal they initially sparred with Tinia Bland over the neighborhood association, saying she runs it without input from much of the community and elects herself president without holding elections. She denied this in an interview with The Jersey Journal. The men say the Blands are homophobic. Tinia Bland denied this too.

In 2012, both sides agree, Trickel asked for a plot in the neighborhood group’s community garden and Tinia Bland said no. In 2013, Trickel and Tinia Bland ran on opposing slates to be elected committee people for the local Democratic Party. He won, she lost. Someone close to Bland said the loss "absolutely" bugged her."

This is why these worthless groups need to be abolished. They are undemocratic organizations that disregard any input that conflicts with the agenda of its self appointed board members. They only serve to satisfy the ego of a few NIMBY homeowners and actively prevent neighborhoods from changing to meet the changing needs of their current residents, all the while having the chutzpah to claim they speak for every resident.

It makes total sense that these groups spawned from Yvonne.

Seriously - why doesn't Yvonne seem to care about real issues, like the waste in the MUA or for pushing for a more sensible reval system? Because that would involve logic and numbers, two things she does not understand and fears, so she reverts to this cultural war nonsense in one of the most liberal cities in the country. What a ridiculous waste of time this entire issue has been.

Ridiculous. Yvonne claims she cares about the environment yet constantly supports politicians that gut environmental protections. Downtown JC has very few trees because she refused to let the city plant any new trees while she ran the VVPA.

This is simply her Fulop derangement syndrome showing. Most people who dislike the mayor aren't going to submit fake petitions with fraudulent names like she did.

Notice the only two people that are opposing this are the same ones whose ideas lost in landslides with the voters.

So truth is not important?


Why not just admit that if you couldn't get the required number of signatures the first time around, people actually living in JC don't give a shit about the issue? You and your army of NIMBY retirees and a few Polish nationalists are the only ones that care.

I think the mayor should have handled the announcement much better, but the compromise seems like a reasonable one to me and most people seem to be in agreement.

Why does Yvonne not use her NIMBY powers for something good, like beautification or planting trees around downtown? Why waste of time and energy over moving a statue one block when this city and our part-time council have real issues to worry about.

As has been stated, what's stopping you from hiring your own independent auditor for this public information? You complain about city spending all the time, but you want taxes to pay for third party auditors for all your nonsense petitions?

The city clerk was looking over the signatures with all the people in the room. Just admit you lied and submitted fraudulent petitions.

Polish statue petition drive fails initial round...

(While I respect the petitioners right to participate in this process, wasting the time of the city with so many bogus signatures erodes their credibility quite significantly IMHO)

(Excerpt) . Petitioners, who need signatures from 6,714 valid Jersey City voters, submitted 3,833 valid signatures out of the 9,471 total they delivered on July 3, according to Byrne.

About 60 percent of the people whose signatures were submitted to the clerk were either not found in the state's voter database or are not registered to vote in Jersey City, according to a July 23 letter Byrne sent to the petitioners. One of the petitions purports to have the signatures of Bill Clinton and Dennis Rodman.
