Re: Chinese Company in Talks to Buy Jersey City Site:

Home away from home


Over a Trillion dollars in cash available for investment by China. The Chinese have purchased our debt as treasury certificates over the last several decades which enabled the US to finance mortgages for condos and houses. Now those dollars are coming home to roost as cash purchases at premium dollars for US property. Thank our lucky selves that someone wants to develop US property and has the cash to do it.

Get used to it minions.

Kara, your point about United Palace model is moot as only the four who replied to the RFP are in contention. ALL had same opportunity.

LiveNation is one of contenders and as to your statement
"...Live Nation has been courting Fulop", post the links that have relevance to RFP selection process.

#2. We all know Live Nation has been courting Fulop (yes, I have proof and its been in the press too). The poster posed a thought. You don't agree. So your keen intellectual retort is to regress to name calling? Classy. Really helps your argument.

FOL dates and other community groups will be determined by winner of RFP.

If Bob Summer dropped the ball that's on him not Fulop.

OneSkirt wrote:
Then please explain to us how the dates for FOL and community groups will be spread out/allocated, and what/if any cost these groups will bear to produce there outside of their standard programming costs. That has never been addressed, and I'd like some clarity around it.

I want to look into ACE as I'm interested in what you said about them. I'm not saying anything negative about them as I do't know much about them - so chill out on that.

Its not conjecture about Fulop and the advisory committee as I worked this issue via a Council person, and Fulop himself told us/Council person he'd have Bob Sommer call this qualified resident expert about participating on the RFP team given her great skill set. Resumes and credentials were provided. Sommer did not handle it well - the Mayor asked him to call the expert about participating. However Sommer waited 2-3 weeks ignoring our emails and call. Then he finally called her after the review team started, to tell her she wasn't welcome (this is 6 days into the multi-month process, mind you). When this was explained to Fulop and we asked him to talk to Sommer about this, the Mayor shrugged it off. That was total crap.

So don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about.

The Mayor refused to let a highly qualified citizen (who helped build Bergen PAC & SOPAC, for example), with this very experience breadth of expertise and no financial stake in the outcome nor any ties to FOL be on the RFP review board as was requested and pleaded for for months. Nope, she was shut out after the leader of the RFP group ignored calls and emails from her and a reputable council person for weeks before the review process began. Then when he did return her call, he told her it was "too late". This is after he ignored attempts to be reached on this very issue for 3-4 weeks prior to the deadline.

That she was shut out is a huge disservice to the residents, local arts groups and the future of the theatre. Fulop's ego is really tied up in this project and he is not listening to reason or any other points of view except his very narrow one. Its shameful he would not let such a valuable expert who was ready to volunteer huge amounts of time to help him, the city and residents get the best possible deal. And you all should know this.

Everyone thinks the arts are this touchy feely thing that they all understand how it works. Its not. Its a business with many different models, nuances, and complicated details. Fulop doesn't get this at all and seems to want to just sell out to a Live Nation or an AEG completely. Would you hire an accounting firm for the city without having someone(s) very experienced with accounting firms, services and negotiations on that RFP board? I don't think so.

A hyrbrid model really needs to be considered here. One in which a non-profit community based entity is established, but that also contracts a certain number of dates with a commercial group like a Bowery Presents or a Lvie Nation. There is room for both, but not if a commercial entity gets the management piece of the contract. Sure, FOL and community groups will get a set number of dates per yer per the RFP (unless the new management firm whines its way out of it and the city lets them). But what dates? Because a commercial management firm is NOT going to spread those dates out fairly in ways that those groups can really use them. Say goodbye to any movies or community shows on the weekend evenings, for example. Get ready for your 20 FOL films jammed into un-booked nights in July & August. Or on Wednesday nights, when they have little chance of drawing an audience. And let's not forget the COST these local groups will have to pay to use the space. These management firms don't so much as open the doors without a cost to the producing group.And forget it if the theatre goes union.

The only way to get a fair shake for the community based groups and residents, while elevating the programming to include larger touring groups is to make this a non-profit hybrid model. A super example that the group should be seriously considering modeling the Loews after is the highly diverse and successful United Palace Theatre in Washington Heights.They do it all, and there is no reason we cannot have this here in JC.

RUN! I lived at 284 Barrow, tween Mercer/Montgomery, in duplex with basement that flooded during heavy rains and sewage also backed up regularly into apt due to JC has a CSS system which MUA said downtown JC would need $150+million to fix, Healy said during debates, :New Jersey hasn;t enough money to fix", so I moved out when lease was up.

I think the issue of possibly bumping into a perp somewhere around town is an insufficient reason for cops to need to live elsewhere. The same risk is there for anyone who has ever served on a jury (jury duty is compulsory, remember?) or as a witness. Not only that, but if a perp really wanted to find a police officer with his guard down, he wouldn't have to look that far. There are a number of well-known watering holes at which some police officers congregate after work routinely.

Living in the town you police is one of the building blocks of police-community relations. There will be much greater mutual respect between citizens and police officers when they are each other's neighbors.

Having cops commute in from out of town, stick around for 8 hours performing a detail while trying to stay out of danger (and in some cases catching some Zs), and then shoot home doesn't contribute much to the overall safety and orderliness of the city.

By the way, I don't think we should paint all JCPD officers with the same broad brush. It's a large force with a lot of good eggs in it.


I too find much of our police force "good eggs" and we are fortunate to have those who dont want to work under accountability leave by July 1st.

I can't wait for the audit that is to come.

However, I want to post a small anecdote that involved my own , umm... "inebriated condition" one night celebrating Fulop's election at Barcade. I must have blacked out on the street after closing, as I found myself splayed legs outward, butt on ground when a police car pulled up. The nice officer asked if he could help me up (I'm 200 lbs, 6'2" and a bi-lateral amputee so not easy)and he first offered to drive me home but then said since I was covered in vomit he instead would walk me home. He then did just that, escorted me home to make sure I didn't fall again saying, "Hey, we got a new Mayor! Did you vote?" Yes, I did officer and thanks!

Brewster, don't hold your breath on "...sewers that don't overflow into our basements with every rain". Tom Wilen spoke at a HCA mtg some years ago and related how the MUA said it would take "over $150+ MM" to improve our downtown infrastructure of pipes to improve the sewage overflow into basements.

Not only that but the then 17k+ condos scheduled to be built (pre 2008 collapse)placed the proverbial "two pounds of s**t in a one pound bag" due to PILOTs and abatements instead of seeking premiums to build downtown with such a poor pipe infrastructure.

You're about two years too late.

The only remaining legal case is beyond desperate. They're trying to claim that FERC itself is unconstitutional. It has no chance of success.


That is only one of JC's arguements. There are many being prepared for brief. I will not compromise our case before brief is requested by presiding judge, First the judge reviews the preliminary finding then will determine our legal standing.

@tommmyc_37, we have been writing about PCB's, other toxins, etc. for three years this Feb! Go to our site , click tabs at top to find out more info. Also on Home page read blogs and press.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission(FERC) controls ALL pipelines that are interstate. Congress authorized FERC under the National Gas Act and the Presient appoints each commissioner. That's why the President will do nothing! Since Congress is controlled by Republicans there is zero chance of changing the Narional Gas Act.

FERC rulings can only be overturned in Federal Court. Jersey City and NO Gas Pipeline have filed to overturn FERC's ruling in DC. Federal Court. We are waiting to hear from judge to see if case goes forward. Yes Spectra Energy have started construction but if court rules against them they must put back whole all they've done.

We need money to continue case on our part. We are looking to raise $15k of which we have raised about $5k+.

Send money by clicking the link in my signature below.

Thanks!

I can't even imagine having a kid in school or at a playground right next to this monstrosity.


Thor, what are the potential issues with PCBs and prevailing winds?

Wasn't almost everybody in Jersey City opposed to this, including the mayor? How is it moving forward then?

Comments on the State of the City Address

Finally, the administration is working on long overdue and much needed initiatives.

Dan, what do you think about this issue of Healy not giving back the nearly $ 70,000 that came in via the Solomon Dwek bribe money?

As the campaign gets going, I want to exten
an invitation for you to join us for breakfast
this Saturday (January 12) at 10:30a.m. for
the official grand opening of our new campaign
headquarters and a chance to meet some of
the council candidates. It is located at 2175 J
ohn F. Kennedy Blvd, at the corner of Kennedy
and Morton.

We have been working for a month to get the
space ready, and I couldn't be more excited. It is
located at the borders of Ward A and B, and one
block from Ward F. We took a building that has
been vacant for years and renovated it with
volunteers. A space that was once an eyesore on
the community is now fit to be the main HQ for a
citywide mayoral campaign.

Again, I hope you can join us and meet the council
candidates. That's this Saturday at 10:30 a.m., at
2175 Kennedy Boulevard.

HPNA Vote on Support of Schuster & Co. Variance!
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


HPNA Vote on Support of Schuster & Co. Variance

WHEN: Wednesday
TIME:7pm
WHERE: PS 37 (Cordero school)


In the HPNA Meeting invitation sent out last evening (for the meeting Wed. night), a MISLEADING note from Schuster & Co. was included trying to influence the HPNA vote on support of their proposed VARIANCE (the developers intention, not necessarily the HPNA's):

"Initially, the plan called for 290 units and 260 parking spaces. After much discussion and revamping Schuster has streamlined their plan and is now offering 206 units and 220 parking spaces." THIS IS MISLEADING. The zoning is presently for 99 units with the ability for him to buy his way up to 154 through additional fees ($7500 per unit). It was originally zoned for one and two family units and the previous owner of the property pushed through a variance in spite of poorly organized opposition, not even 3 years ago bumping it to 99/154 then sold it off to be built.

Schuster & Co. acknowledged at the meting that he bought the property knowing the zoning and would build regardless. He's asking for even more density to make the project more profitable. At the last community he heard unequivocally that he must comply with the zoning restrictions yet he came back first with a plan for 220 units, then when that was rebuffed by the focus group he'd asked to meet with, he's now back with a proposal for 200 and taking it to a different group of people hoping for support.

Please spread the word and come out Wednesday evening at 7pm to PS 37 (Cordero school) and voice your opinion. If you are an HPNA member please come vote. This is a major impact to our neighborhoods parking, schools, sewers, parks, and community. Most of us support reasonable development and believe it could benefit the neighborhood if done right. That being said, this just keeps growing and growing. Enough is enough. He needs to hear loud and clear that our neighborhood and community aren't here so that he can line his pockets.

Sincerely,
Leon Greene
Committeeman, E-19

At least Dan Levin attended the council meeting on the plan affecting Van Vorst Park area, but where was Candice? Not attending meetings after you announce for office tells a lot about commitment. I just see commitment just from Dan.


Candice was with me meeting at 700 Grove on crime & safety.

Unlike those who just posture appearance as commitment, Candice meets with those neighbors who have problems they are concerned about where they live.

Dan joining a ticket isn't the problem. It's Healy's ticket.

Maybe Dan thinks he can dive into a cesspool and come up without any stink. Too late for that.

His self-serving comments about what Healy's done for the city mean that the Danny Boy we once knew is dead and gone.

Support the Crime Prevention Law at Council Meeting Tonight

At tonight’s Council meeting, I will be introducing the Crime Prevention Lawto enforce an operational study of the JCPD every four years. Not only is it legally sound – despite the objection of the Mayor and Corporation Counsel –it’s the right thing to do. Despite the Mayor and the Chief's assertions that crime is down in Jersey City, Jersey City residents all across the city feel less safe in their neighborhoods. We can do better and this ordinance is a step in the right direction.

This ordinance establishes an Ad Hoc Council Committee that will direct the hiring of a consultant to study the nearly $100 million-budget Police Department including table of organization, efficiency and effectiveness of deployment, hiring, etc. so that we can examine and make better decisions with our limited resources including the possibility of foot patrols in our neighborhoods. It is not a unilateral study, rather it incorporates input from the Mayor and the public.

Here’s background story:
http://www.jerseycityindependent.com/ ... review-gets-a-second-try/

I could really use your support on this by showing up tonight and making your presence felt in the Council meeting. Since it is the first reading of this ordinance today, the public can’t speak on the ordinance before the vote. To make your presence, I would suggest simply sitting in the front rows and holding up simple signs on letter-size paper with statements such as:

“Pass Crime Prevention Law”
“Foot Patrols”
“Public Safety Is Your 1st Priority”
"We Need Action Now. Pass Crime Prevention Law!"

The meeting is at 6pm at the Council Chambers. Perhaps get there a little early to get a seat on the front rows. The First Reading ordinances come up first in the agenda.
Thanks as always for your support and I hope to see friendly faces tonight.

Rolando
