Yeah, can we afford to fund adult education with all the new cut backs? Wasn't there a long history of BIG corruption in the Jersey City Employment Training Program.

Is this going to end up being again like the Jersey City Employment Training Program offices formerly at Grove and Newark Avenue?

I hope the city gets some control over the school board -- the school budget is the lion share of Jersey City's future tax woes.

Terrific news. A school for adults, which likely means night classes and even more parking headaches for people who live in the area--over the past year it has become much more of a pain to do the alternate side parking thing. I assume it is because of the school, and that things will only get worse. Yay!

Vote to redevelop area along Grand

Friday, February 22, 2008
By CHARLES HACK
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

The Jersey City Planning Board voted Wednesday to recommend City Council approval for designating a small area on the side of Grand Street opposite the Liberty Harbor North project as an area in need of redevelopment.

Under the Bright Street Redevelopment Plan, developers will be able to build four-story buildings containing offices, bars, art galleries and homes on a wedge of land bounded by Grand, Bright, and Barrow streets.

The plan also allows for three-family townhouses or four-story multifamily buildings north of Bright Street, on paved lots that now have several unoccupied trailers previously used as annexes for the old School 3.

In addition, the plan calls for restoration of the Passaic Hose Firehouse at 14 Bright St. for residential or retail purposes.

The plan also calls for a vacant plot of land next to the old School 3 building to be developed.

The Planning Board has agreed to remove the old School 3 building from the area in need of redevelopment plan. City officials had mistakenly believed the Board of Education had stopped using the building. But that isn't the case, city officials said.

School Board Member Gerald McCann thanked Planning Board members for not including the building in the redevelopment plan, noting it is slated to become the district's center for adult education.
