There is a $852 million gross municipal/county general obligations bonding debt. We are still paying for debt refinance in the early 1990s, Fiscal Year Adjustment Bonds, 1991. We are paying for retirement bonds for cops and firemen that have left government a long time ago. Every year, we bond $9.5 million terminal leave. It is amazing, people think we have deep pockets.

The proposed building on MLK will NOT be a new city hall! It is an annex building for City Hall.

If that's your criteria, everywhere is inaccessible from parts of the city. Areas near the Light Rail are more accessible to more areas of the city than any other parts of the city.

It was suggested not too long back that the city was thinking of relocating some blue collar DPW workers to the basement of the present City Hall but after examining the Sandy damage and residual effects it was determined it would take a few million to bring the building back to a safe level. What should happen once that restoration is completed is that the City should continue to hold Council meetings there as there is adequate parking as well as re-establish the Jersey City Museum. Further they could hold public events in the building as it could accommodate large groups.

The previous administration condemned property on Montgomery Street, now parking for city workers for a municipal annex. A small church was on that site. But let's be realistic, $20 million for a municipal plaza? When the county created County Plaza on Cornelison Avenue, the purchase price was $14 million and $15 million was earmarked for renovations. But renovations increased an extra $30 million to $45 million or $59 million for a county complex. I don't believe $20 million will be the final price. Let’s use some of the space of the county.

I think this is a great idea. I live in Greenville, and agree that the way to attract business to the area is to create a more positive economic environment. Having a coupe of hundred city workers buying lunches, etc will be a help.

More importantly, we know that these workers will demand a safe area to work in, and they will get it. In the three years i have lived in Greenville, I have not personally experienced a problem, but for sure, drugs and crime are rampant here.

As far as transportation goes, the light rail provides excellent service, there are several bus routes, and there is lots of parking.

its time to bring development to the south end of Jersey City, and what a better group to start with--the very people that are engaged in making ALL of Jersey City a better place to live

I also like the MLK station, it makes sense to me. Most people who need to do business with the city can take the lite rail, no one needs to drive there.

has the city done a study as to where to best locate a new city hall?

the obvious answer may be journal square.

where will residents and businesses be best served?

which area would provide the best access, non-motor vehicle to the most residents?

This makes much more sense transit wise though, as it's right next to the MLK light rail station. I think it's a great move and will help develop an area that is in dire need of it. If you want a good laugh, check out the comments section on the article. You can't make this stuff up!

I always felt the city should rent or buy some space at the county facility on Cornelison Avenue. The place is under utilized and there is plenty of parking. Besides, we are already paying the bonds on that space. The space is tremendous.

Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

Jersey City is planning to build a $20 million City Hall annex on Martin Luther King Drive, one that city officials hopes will bring benefits to one of the city's most economically distressed neighborhoods.

The annex, planned for the Hub shopping center, would bring about 250 city workers to the area, and it would include offices for the mayor and the police and fire chiefs. The plans were revealed during a meeting with Ward F community leaders yesterday.

The new building would be called the Martin Luther King Jr. City Hall Annex. Groundbreaking is scheduled for this fall.

The city believes the annex will bring new foot traffic to the area, benefiting local shops and creating a demand for more businesses, according to a seven-page presentation obtained by The Jersey Journal that was given to community leaders at yesterday's meeting.
