The Powerhouse District is just now getting sidewalks, once the developers built them. It's been next to impossible to get the city to plan ahead and get safe pathways established while asking new residents to live in a transitional area in "luxury" apartments. We might have one sidewalk per block but access to the elevated platform/sidewalks is sketchy.



Very true. Thankfully, the developers of the new towers going up have done a great job putting in place really wide sidewalks. I look forward to completion of the second phase of Provost Square project. They have been opening the sidewalks little by little, and also resurfaced one of their streets already, and the results have been very good.

I can't seem to find any recent information on this change. Does anyone have any solid knowledge on when this will start?

Is that a rhetorical question? Who chooses to pay ~200/month when you could have same/similar for ~0/month??

thanks!

Well permits may address the out of towners issue but the way people park their cars on the street wasting space front and behind their cars how to solve that?
Given the severe shortage of parking spaces in the city this callous attitude toward fellow residents is shameful.
It seems basic human courtesy is too much to expect

When does this resident permit become effective? Are all streets included in this permit? Earlier a few streets didn't require a permit.

Yes, from Tonnelle Ave. to Ogden Ave and from the St. Hwy. (139) to both city borders. It was supposed to have taken affect in May but there is a delay with signage, and deciding whether is should be 24 hours of only up till 11 pm.

I sort of agree ... every taxed residential property should receive one (only) parking permit and pay through the nose for a second one or visitors permit (max. limit 2 including the free permit).

The freebie and extra parking should be limited to those that have no off-street parking available (the older homes) and not for new developments or when the regulations were in place for developers to provide off-street parking... this is inner city living and things should only improve as old homes get bulldozed and new construction with off-street parking get built.

"A $15 annual permit for residents will allow them to park in the zone 24 hours a day."

Expanded services at virtually FREE rates? That price is stupid and needs to be increased. Some would say substantially or to market rate. I would say $30-$50/year makes sense - that's still a giant bargain. How does this city expect to pay for better services like expanded enforcement - which we desperately need citywide - at these 1970's prices?!?


I agree that the cost for the basic residential permit should rise, a little now, and more each year. But just as important: Residential permits for MULTIPLE cars per household should be MUCH more expensive. A little more expensive for the second, but 3 and 4 and 5 cars? Those are MUCH more likely to be unnecessary, and we shouldn’t be subsidizing their ownership. Buy your teenager a bike and a bus schedule, and the people who genuinely still NEED cars to work and raise families will have more room to park. Or if you absolutely insist, then if you can afford 4 or 5 cars, you can pay more for all the taxpayer-owned, taxpayer-maintained street space you’re hogging up.

Building garages or requiring new construction to have parking is the answer. We should not go into debt to build a public transportation system.

on narrow oakland st fulop did put a few hundred cars extra in just past few years. oakland was designed in about 1850.

all you get is a right not to be ticketed. you can print permit yourself for like 5 cents at staples. same value.

what terrence failed to notice is that city will be selling at premium unlimited permits for outsiders on the side, what negates the whole claim of helping residents. they produced nothing to back up any claim. it is called extortion.

Does zone 2 still remain and is it separate from a new zone, or is the new zone an expanded zone 2?

And having permit parking apply only during work hours makes no sense to me as most people would need parking during the evening anyway.

I like that people working in the area can get a 6 month permit for only $50 as well, which is better than taking chances and getting tickets right now.

also thought this quote was hilarious

Pat O'Melia, of Congress Street, called the measure an "attack on the working people of the Heights." O'Melia said it would hurt workers of businesses on Central and Palisade avenues.

"You might as well put red caps on that say 'make America great again,'" O'Melia told council members, "because you're all working for Trump."

wtf does that even mean? I dislike Trump a lot but a lot of Jersey City people love to freak out about any little change.

I too wish that the entire city was like the Heights having a uniformed zoned system instead of this segregated society. As far as change, do you really want a submissive society to just accept what ever is thrown in front of them ? Remember this ordinance should only be inconvenient towards out of town plates so not to convenient local residents. Being loyal to our residents and home owners should be first priority.

A few considerations not thought of: Charging for health care worker visits, neighbors deciding to stay for longer visits late in the evening, and proper signatures for street parameters. Many signatures were collected as a whole but not all reflect each block that zoned parking will be implemented. Knowing this ordinance will not take effect until a year from now there will be time for tweaking and polishing which was the thought process in the initial stages of this plan.

Agreed, but 60-90 days is plenty of time to hire people.

And pricing should be more like $1000/year for residential permit parking and $+5000/year for non-residents. We need to consider street parking as the prime real estate that it is and promote public transportation and cycling.

New parking rules for the Jersey City Heights


issue was raised that people come, park and take jitneys to nyc

have you seen a single person driving around looking 15 minutes for a spot, then walking half a mile uphill on western slope? what kind of journalism is that?

New parking rules for the Jersey City Heights


your priorities show how you care. you rush to advertise lavarro as "champion" of immigrants first. then, you posted your article after my post.

and what an article it is.

you missed entirely unlimited paid permits for anybody for a small consideration, like contractors. nobody calculated how many should be allowed altogether. just send us a check.

you also missed raised issue of city failing to calculate how many spots are there to begin with. fulop allows illegal driveways en masse. before shaking people for money why not enforce an existing laws?

you missed issue of unlimited driveways for new cookie cutter box houses, converted from no driveway status. city taking those spots, and there is nothing in ordinance addressing this hole in the system.
