There are 19 charging outlets - only one super charger. They are not going away. Hopefully the city will work on getting more around the entire city.

I think you are definitely onto something.

The situation across from The Oakman and ArtHouse has definitely gotten worse since they painted spots on the road, despite the overall narrowing of the road.


So Reverse Angle parking - which has cars backing into a space, rather than pulling in head first - solves this problem. It gives those cars great visibility of oncoming cars and bikes/peds. We need more of this on streets that can support it.


Traffic & Engineering's initial 2014 renderings had reverse angle parking for all diagonal parking on north side of First St. Shuster chose to ignore and striped how they wanted it. Traffic & Engineering caved and didn't pursue or demand that they re-stripe.

PADNA is not against the EV charging stations. We only asked the city to allow half of the stations to be shared with public parking. Eight spaces are EXCLUSIVE charging only. And more will become exclusive as the demand increases.

There is one Supercharger station on First Street between Marin Blvd. and Provost Street. It's been there well over a year. In the middle of the block.

I am in the process of talking to the City. Tesla is also announcing the location of a Supercharger (charges a Tesla to a full charge in under 30 min) by the end of this year.

Example of a high rise holding out spaces for commercial use for retail/businesses in building. Garage Parking is handed over to an outside company, i.e., LAZ.

110 First Street - 20 spaces for Car Rental company, 6+ spaces for building employees, 6+ spaces for WADLO child/school employees, EV charging station, 20+ reserved spaces, allows daily commuter parking, monthly parking for residents and non-residents.

Un-reserved parking spaces FULL from floor 1-6, 7th floor spotty and half of 8th floor has car rental and employee parking with a few un-reserved parking spaces occupied.

Parking on First Street and Warren Street is mostly people from 110 First and Modera, parking with no permits either because of lack of enforcement of Zone 4 permit parking during the day and they can park legally from M-F 4p-10a overnight and all weekend. So if they drive to work during the day - they can park for free at night and weekends.

No one from this building can claim there are no spaces available, but the parking garage is definitely not empty like everyone seems to say on JCList.

Re: Private Business Taking Public Spaces for Valet Parking

I would think it's strictly pick up and drop off. No one is "parking" for a substantial amount of time. Parking would happen in the parking garage, valet only? I wonder if guests can park their own car in the garage.

Before it was "No Parking Anytime" this entire block are the evil "reserved parking" parking spaces - non-residents (or residents) buy a monthly parking pass, enforced M-F. If you don't have a monthly placard - parking officers will print out a ticket quickly and possibly boot your car too. Public can park on this block at night and over the weekends.

PADNA's view of the First Street EV stations is positive, but the Electric Vehicle public has not arrived to use the spaces. Jersey City government has introduced these ordinances to clarify and enforce the exclusive EV spaces, as well as acknowledging that a majority of EV spaces remain empty 24/7 over the past three years. The EV spaces are not going away, but will share the EV spaces with zone permit and public parking until the need arrives. As EV charging demand increases, spaces will return to exclusive EV charging only. Until that time, the general public will use the unused spaces.

Many want to charge near their home. Wouldn't it make sense to create more public charging stations spread throughout the city, not all in one place? This way people won't have to travel far to charge. I would be interested in hearing who would like public EV charging stations on their street. Any volunteers?

On north end of downtown platform (back of the train) go down the stairs as if going to the uptown train, walk towards uptown platform, look around for the station turnstiles and you see sign for WTC/PATH - follow that and you should find the exit to the long corridor to Occulus.

Electric vehicle sharing - called "Maven" over on First Street between Marin and Provost. There are only a few cars available, but with demand they would expand.

Warren Street south of C Columbus is earlier (used to be reserved parking only, but now also Zone 4 permit weekdays). The times for street sweeping on the reserved parking streets have been 6a for a long time.

Warren Street north of C Columbus is 8a-10a.

I heard that Zip Electric cars on First Street are over - Not a reliable vendor for Shuster Development. They aren't saying who, but they're in negotiations to bring in a "better" electric car rental service.

The electric charging stations are still available for charging personal vehicles.

Of course there are businesses in 150 Bay - it's a mixed use building. BUT it does have 90 residential units on the top floors. It is a concrete structure. The sound that travels within the building from Club Transmission is terrible. The residents - all the way up to the top floor above the club - can hear when it opens, identify songs being played and will finally be able to sleep without sleep aids once it's closed for the night at 3a. It's not that it patrons can be noisy outside the club; no one complains on the street that the club music is too loud - BUT it was not properly soundproofed in the interior and the bass of the nightclub music travels throughout the interior structure.

If 150 Bay was an exclusively commercial building, there would be no tenants at night complaining of the sound/bass issues until 3a.

But Newmark, the landlord, has rented this space out to Club Transmission and had no idea that it was not sound-proofed properly. No respect for its residents. IF your downstairs neighbor threw dance club parties every weekend with the music blasting through the columns/walls and floors - you'd complain to the landlord, the people making the noise and eventually calling the police. This happens EVERY weekend. Newmark recently told the tenants that it would pay for half of the cost to soundproof it properly. They are aware of the problems now. BUT until the issue is fixed the residents in this building take sleep aids, turn on the white noise machines or finally get some peace and quiet when Transmission closes at 2a weekdays and 3a on the weekends.

I believe it's about light and ventilation to make a room habitable. The walls of the "bedroom" don't go up to the ceiling, allowing ventilation and light into the space. Apparently it doesn't have to be a "window".

Re: Plan to lower parking minimums in Jersey City spurs anger

Home away from home



Parking eligibility interpretation has a learning curve - I appreciate the details.

Upon asking a senior parking official, "If 'they' provide a letter from ownership/management Co. stating there are no spaces available they are eligible for an on-street permit. They have to proof annually because availability is subject to change."




Quote:

Key word is AVAILABLE. Once the off-street parking is full, shut out residents are eligible for street permits.

https://www.municode.com/library/nj/je ... 3-10510-23-2013ORNO13-114

G. To assure that both prospective residential tenants and purchasers of property, including condominiums, are aware of the residential parking permit conditions imposed hereunder, every landlord and every seller shall, on or before the date a lease is executed or a deed is conveyed, provide the prospective tenant or buyer with a copy of Section 332-58.


But if a resident in a building of FIVE or more units, that has off-street parking, is not able to get a space in that lot because is full and therefore UNAVAILBLE to them for lease or for free, they can get a street permit.

And the threshold of 5 of more units might pertain to why Prodigal son got a spot, depending on how many units that home had. Under 5 unit in building/home - get as many dang permits as you want. This happens in my hood. There's a homeowner in our parking zone with a 4 unit house, that has converted the back yard into a parking lot with about 5 spaces. He rents all those out for cash, and gets street permits for him and his family. They do not park their own cars there. Its infuriating.

JC also has no limit on number of vehicle permits per address. This is a big problem in terms of discouraging less car ownership. At least in Hoboken they increase the yearly cost of permits on a tiered price increase after the first permit.

Buildings that come with off-street parking - even if it's not 1:1. Are NOT eligible for zone permit parking.

https://www.municode.com/library/nj/je ... 3-10510-23-2013ORNO13-114

E. Parking permits shall be issued to motor vehicles only upon application by the following persons:
(1)
A legal resident of the residential permit parking zone who (a) has a motor vehicle registered in his/her name or available for his/her exclusive use and under his/her control; and (b) resides in a property in which no off-street parking is available to residents, whether the off-street parking is provided free of charge or is only offered for a separate fee or rent.
(2)
A person who owns or leases commercial property and actively engages in business activity within a residential permit parking area or employee thereof (pay stubs shall be submitted for proof of employment). However, no more than one (1) parking permit may be issued for each employee for a motor vehicle registered to or under the control of such a person.
(3)
A person who is a current student of an educational institution (proof of current registration required) located in the residential parking permit zone.

Just the acknowledgment that you all live a block away and hear the club shows that it is louder than it should be. Those of us that live in the building up 8 floors and across street up 7 floors can hear the music transition to the next song while deep inside our apartments. No sound-proofing of the DJ/Bar space was done. All glass walls, no sound absorption on the walls and concrete floors makes for a bad situation to control the noise, especially the bass. If they closed at midnight I wouldn't care, but they're open until 3am - full blast. The owner is attempting to fix it, but he didn't think ahead and do it before he opened up.

They were shutdown Friday for fire code violations, noise above legal limits measured by city officials and several ABC law violations.

Yep, about a block away myself and any noise is barely noticeable outside on the balcony and completely nonexistent inside the apartment. Maybe if you're in the building on the second or third floor you'd be able to hear it some, but across the street it's barely a thing.

Police officers and undercover cops swooped into the neighborhood last night around 130a. Swarmed around the club entrance and shut the place down last night. Not sure what the cause was, but a nice quiet end to a Friday night.

Not exactly happy with this new edition to our neighborhood. This is a residential, not a commercial neighborhood. Who thought a nightclub would be good a idea when there are so many residents willing to call the police for any commotion - in addition to the constant drone of bass of the DJ music (ointz, ointz, ointz) - so annoying and it travels into all the apartments above and across the street. It would be better suited to move the nightclub into the commercial buildings near the waterfront away from people trying to sleep.
