Still cannot open the link, but did see the results as they were published after each vote on the website-

I would ask that both, the HPNA and FoHP push now to establish an interim dog run in one of the fenced tennis courts or one of the grassy quadrants AND push to have the city designate one of the grassy quadrants as pet free.

Using the park stinks, not because it needs renovation, but because of the decades old issues/conflicts with people and dogs.

Dealing with it now, will only make it easier later.

If a dog run is being built in VanVorst Park and two lawns have already been designated pet-free, the Hamilton Park community groups must take responsibility and address these issues now. Now and not put it off in a park renovation that could start next year or could start in five years.

Thanks for saying this Minnie, I remember that day and it was a great day and a wonderful community project.

A great way to meet our neighbors.
I love the gardens as do many others and look forward to complementary areas being constructed around the other half of the park.

I'm confused... are we talking about Hamilton Park or Tara Plantation?

J. Greely: I was able to open and read your document. Much
of it I?m familiar with. I spent hours putting together the history
of Hamilton Park at the Jersey City Library and made several calls
to the lighting contractor, Halogen. So it all comes back to me now.

The negative comments about Van Vorst Park were uncalled for.
Not because of a few truthful remarks made by residents in the
comment section, but because you chose to highlight them to prove
a point. Dr. Waldman was the construction advisor for the incredible
renovation of Van Vorst Park and as you know, he handed the HPNA
copies of his ballots used in Pershing Field, for you to use and learn
from. Give credit where credit is due.

You wrote the following about my own group:

?In 2005, the Friends of Hamilton Park was created as part of
the Jersey City Parks Coalition headed by Cliff Waldman. The
FofHP planted gardens that are of much contention in the
neighborhood and resulted in extensive comments made on this
final ballot. Many absentee ballots were returned from all over
Jersey City requesting space and resources for the FofHP. Please
see Ballot 5 comments (page 105) for varying community opinions.?

The Friends of Hamilton Park was not created by or for Cliff Waldman.
We?re a member of the coaltion, just as the HPNA is a member of the
DCNA. You?re suggesting that we alone are the reason for any positive
comments pertaining to the community gardens, when so many residents
participated, and went home with aching backs. I was in the park every
day, watering, and I know the impact they had on people, even if they?re
not perfect and have a temporary fence because that?s all we could afford.
It?s very sad that you felt the need to do this.

I did not organize the planting projects, the FoHP, so that someday I
could stand and watch them be bulldozed. I know that for several members
of HPNA who were present during my time as an officer, that this day
will not come soon enough. And someday it could happen, and when it
does, I will drop to my knees and cry. And you will claim victory!
But you can never take away from me, us, the joy we felt the day we broke
ground. For I know in my heart, that it was this day, that caused those same
angry members to realize that gardens in Hamilton Park are not so bad
afterall, and are really quite popular.

Hmmm... I can click and open it in both Mozilla Firefox and IE. Here's another link like the first, on the off chance that something is weird. Are other people having problems?

The alternate way to get there is to go to the front page of the HPNA Yahoo group, then go to the File link on the left hand side, and the last file listed is the .pdf of the report.

If you are not part of the yahoo group you will have to register first.

Hope that helps,
Jen


Hi Jen and Minnie. Jen, your link was broken in the prior post and also on the yahoo site message posted (someone needs to redo the imbed of the hyperlink for the path of the pdf file). I logged in since I am a Yahoo Hamilton Park Group member to check it out.

I have it open now and here is the exact location. NOTE: you must click on the entire thing below:

The final report summarizing the community input on the Hamilton Park renovation is available online through our Yahoo! Groups website. Available in .pdf format:

Hamilton Park Renovation Community Report

Please note that it is formatted for two-sided printing and although the report is long, a full summary is contained in the first 30 pages. The report will be uploaded and available through our website at www.parkrenovation.com soon.

This report will be utilized by the company hired by the City of Jersey City to create a Master Plan for Hamilton Park as part of the larger city-wide project. A public hearing will be held at City Hall in April for all Jersey City residents to come out and have their voice heard on this issue. We will keep you informed as to the date and time as it becomes available and we encourage everyone to attend - the more voices, the more this park truly becomes a park of the community.

The HPNA will be distributing this report in both electronic and printed format to various City officials, departments, and agencies. If you would like to see a printed sample report and hear the latest news on the park renovation, please come to the next HPNA meeting on April 5th at 7:30 pm at Cordero School on Erie between 9th and Pavonia.

Once again, an immense thank you to everyone who participated!

- Jen Greely
