Re: Steve Fulop

Not too shy to talk


The HDCO is headed by Healy, so I don't see him getting the nod from the Dems.

I believe that Fulop is an Independent, anyway.

If I were to run, though a lifelong Democrat, I would likely do the same, as I do not want to be associated with this county's party.

Fulop is the only member of the council that I have invited into my home.

Healy did speak up, he said that Lipski doesn't need to resign.

Demand that Lipski resign. Demand it.

If you sit idly by, you are endorsing this inexcusable behavior.

FYI - this is the architect on the St. Boniface project

Architect-lawyer pleads guilty in connection to dog bribe
by The Associated Press
Monday August 18, 2008, 3:39 PM

A lawyer and architect has admitted lying to the FBI on whether he paid bribes -- at least one in the form of a dog -- to Hudson County officials in exchange for favors.

Jose Izquierdo pleaded guilty today to one count of making false statements. The 52-year-old Cliffside Park man faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when sentenced Dec. 15.

Among other things, he admitted spending about $3,400 to buy a Pomeranian dog and pet supplies for the girlfriend of a member of the Union City zoning board.

Federal prosecutors have not named the official.

Izquierdo represented agencies of West New York from 2000 to 2006, as well as developers with real estate interests in several Hudson County towns.

It definitely won't happen if no one is talking about it :)

It has to start somewhere.

what I don't hear is anyone opposed to the idea, which is a great first step.

Re: Is being ignorant a requirement to work for the JC Parking Authority?

City Council is aware of this and I believe that the JCPA has now been made aware that just being in an area and then moving within it is not then to be considered parking the entire time.

there was a story in the Reporter about this about a month ago.

City Consolidation?
#7
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Population of New York City: 8 million

Populations of Bayonne, Newark, Hoboken, Union, Secaucus, North Bergen, Weehawken, Kearny and Jersey City: 810,000.

With taxes at the city and county level climbing, is it time to ask if we need so many governments with the same functions overseeing populations of less than 500,000?

New York's five boroughs combined in 1898.

Jersey City is jokingly referred to as 'the sixth borough'. Maybe what Jersey City should aspire to be is New York's sister city.

In the past, when rumble strips and speed bumps have been suggested, two reasons were thus:

1. The DOT, Police and Fire Dept. would oppose them

2. The strips and bumps would unduly rattle the historic homes and damage them.

Now, rumble strips are on Jersey Ave., and the HCA would like to hear from anyone whose home is being adversely affected.

There are many other ways to slow cars: traffic calming measures:

- streets narrowed at intersections (eg, chicanes, neckdowns)
- streets narrowed at midpoints (chokers)
- textured cross walks made of a different color and material than the street (eg, the brick crosswalks by Hamilton Square)
- speed tables
- raised crosswalks/intersections

the strips are in a historic district.

If people would like to comment (those in favor, opposed, etc),

first, email Harsimus Cove Association at
HarsimusCoveAssociation-owner@yahoogroups.com

And it will be added to the agenda of the HCA's special meeting on August 20.

Re: Where are all the BJ shopping carts coming from?
#10
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Friends & Neighbors,

As I am sure you are aware, our neighborhood has a problem with shopping carts left in our neighborhood, particularly with carts from BJ's.

BJ's does collect them, and we need to encourage them to do so in a more timely manner while we figure out a more permanent solution to keeping the carts in the parking lots where they belong.

If you see a cart, call BJs at (201) 798-0500 and tell them exactly where the cart is so they can collect it. The general manager at our local BJs is named Tim Hebert. I also encourage you to email MemberCare@bjs.accentonline.com to let them know that this is a problem in our neighborhood.

You can also call the Incinerator Authority at 201-432-4645 ext. 631 or 646.

Thanks

Eric Fleming

Healy Timeline
#11
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


In 2008, Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy has lost another round in his effort to overturn a conviction on resisting arrest and obstructing justice. A unanimous state appellate court on today found no reason to change last year's verdicts, which stem from an incident in Bradley Beach in 2006. Healy was convicted by a municipal judge, and the verdict was upheld last year by a state judge.

In 2004, photos depicting the future mayor nude and drunkenly slumped on his front stoop were widely publicized after a neighbor with a camera phone captured several shots of him in full, unattired glory. According to Healy, he ambled outside fully clothed after consuming half a dozen beers to investigate a suspicious noise, then passed out as a result of suffering from diabetes.

In 1999, he pleaded guilty to a disorderly persons charge after reportedly getting into a naked scuffle with police, this time on the front porch of his vacation home on the Jersey shore.

I would strongly suggest contacting Dan at the HPC.

If you are in in a historic district, and you plan to do anything to change the facade, you need to talk to them

We're holding a special meeting on August 20th to meet a second time with the developer of St. Boniface, for those that missed our regular meeting in July.

The meeting will be held at 7:30pm in the Community Room of the Villa Borinquen (2nd and Grove/Manilla).

The developer goes before the Zoning Bd. of Appeals in September, so this is an excellent opportunity to ask questions and voice your concerns.

I will also try to get a planner from the City to attend to explain the zoning.

Friends and Neighbors,

Tonight the developer of St. Boniface went before the Zoning Bd of Appeals.

Due to the number of people speaking in opposition to the project's lack of parking, walls that obstruct light of neighbors yards, and other concerns, the ZBA carried the proposal until its September meeting.

I volunteered to host another meeting for those neighbors to meet with the developer who didn't make it Wednesday's meeting.

The idea is to hold a meeting in August, before the ZBA's September meeting, to work out the concerns of our neighbors most affected by the project.

So, per our bylaws, Article 5, Section 3, I am calling a Special Meeting, tentatively scheduled for the third Wednesday of August.

Thanks.

See the St. Boniface thread for details

And I have the plans for the project as well, if neighbors would like to see them who can't make the August meeting with the developer of the St. Boniface site.

BJ's has a contractor picking up carts in the neighborhood 5x a week, but it hasn't been enough.

So, by the end of July, their carts will be fitted with special wheel locks to prevent their carts from going astray.

the Harsimus Cove Association voted unanimously at their July General meeting to ask the city to impose the $100,000 bond on SK Properties as they are not abiding by the ordinance that sets forth the proper maintenance of the Plaza.

We will be writing a letter to the Mayor and presenting it to City Council to ask for the bond.

The funds can then be used to maintain the Plaza, and the funds can be replenished.

Re: Three 40-plus story towers on 110 and 111 First Street sites.
#24
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


The council's vote (6-2 in favor of settlling with Goldman and thereby allowing towers to go up in the PAD) was nothing short of spineless cowardice to a bully.

New Gold Properties is a property owner of the worst sort - flauting laws as it sees fit and then threatening lawsuits when it the laws of the land don't suit its agenda.

There are reasons why we have government - to protect the citizens from those that seek to harm those that live there. That is government in its simplest form. The council failed in this most simple duty last night.

Last night was a time for the council to once again stand up for the people of the PAD and the laws in place and tell Goldman that his organization can not run roughshod over Jersey City.

The settlement never needed to be discussed as there was no need. The laws were there to be enforced. The PAD is the only zone and has its standards. Zones within zones is utter nonsense. And calling that agreement a settlement is a utter misnomer. It's clear capitulation with a party that has proven that it can not and should not be trusted.

Goldman could have sued for $200 million or $300 million or for whatever amount it wanted and for however long it chose and the city has the responsibility to move in lockstep to support the people of the PAD.

Goldman and those like him are a cancer upon the heart of our City. We can choose to fight them off aggressively or subcumb and let the city and every aspect of what makes it special die a slow and irrevocable death.
