1. More of an effort to eliminate the Bayonne Boxes which have been an eyesore on so many outskirt neighborhoods of transit hubs over the years.

2. Smarter transitioning of neighborhoods to reduce the likelihood of a 50 story building to stand next to a 2 story house. Im all for development, but there should be more of an easing in to a high rise section of town from a low-rise house section as well.

3. Wider streets that provide parking and bike lanes on both sides in completely new sections of the city. It boggles my mind why developers are making super narrow streets and sidewalks when they have a blank slate to work with. there is plenty of room to still build tall buildings but allowing more space to move for cars and people will reduce traffic and look more pleasing than tight narrow streets.

Theres a ton of other things, but either way, I wish her the best for the future of the city.


Well, focus could be more on the sidewalks being wider and allowing for street parking which is scarce, in addition to bike lanes. but not actually adding anymore lanes of traffic. Wider sidewalks can allow more businesses to have outdoor seating and more landscaping without becoming too claustrophobic to the pedestrians.

Viewing this as a past longtime Jersey City resident it is great news. The fact that someone with talent is being put into an important position is refreshing. So much cronyism over the years gave J.C. unqualified officials who were overwhelmed and only interested in the perks and the generous pensions of course. No more "my cousin Sean hooked me up" or "Uncle Mike got me the city wide contract." Progress doesn't mean growth, it means smart growth.

Hopefully there will be more thought into ensuring JC's infrastructure can keep pace with the exploding development.

JERSEY CITY -- A Downtown woman who has worked as a professional urban planner and architect for nearly two decades will be the city's new planning director.

Annisia Cialone, who lives in the Hamilton Park neighborhood, will replace Bob Cotter, the longtime city planner who retired last year. Cialone's salary is set by city ordinance at roughly $105,000.

Cialone, who will start by early March, comes from architectural firm Perkins Eastman, where she worked for over 10 years, according to her resume. She has a master of architecture degree from Harvard University.
