Riverview Neighborhood Association (RNA)

Artists and those interested in the arts take note. Meeting on 1/15.We are planning for Jersey City not only in 2019, but for what we want in we want in the next 50 years here in JC. Recently, our administration had the city acquire the PathSide Building in Journal Square to create a community cultural/arts center in the heart of the city. This was zoned for high rise development but rather than see more units we thought this would be a better service to JC. We have also hired one of the best consultants in the world to lead our efforts (OMA) but it will be driven by your input first. These are the first 3 community meetings to meet with the team and discuss what you want to see there. The possibilities are endless and I hope you can join us! MEETING #1 Journal Square Engagement Workshop Hudson County Community College STEM Building, 263 Academy St Tues, Jan 15, 7-9pm MEETING #2 Arts Community Engagement Workshop Mana Contemporary, 888 Newark Ave Tues, Jan 22, 5-7pm MEETING #3 Community Engagement Workshop City Hall, Council Chambers Wed, Jan 30, 6-8pm ...

Artists and those interested in the arts take note. Meeting on 1/15.

REMINDER Neighbors: There is a Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting tomorrow, Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 6:30pm at City Hall. One of the projects on the docket is the proposed building at 268 New York Ave that will replace the Jetco building. The proposal is 4 stories, 10 units with 10 parking spaces.

On January 3, 2019, the RNA membership present voted not to approve the project unless the developer agreed to add an affordable or artist live/work unit. All neighbors and residents are encouraged to attend tomorrow's meeting to voice their opinion, whether for or against the project.

Have a good night!

Enclosed are the proposed plans: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AK80YoW0lBuZMD6vVvB6JmRaiFPRTLLk/view?fbclid=IwAR2dswP6-uMunJAY7o8j0cEOJXq1QczazizqfXtKQR9agwU5ve6Ws99-3-g

i had to work and was not able to attend, but it seems to me that they are a descent builder, they are offering 10 parking spots equal to the # of units. BEYOND generous . why the need for live work? block a larger builder offering less parking spaces for that. please educate me on why this is not a good thing

Good attendance at the special meeting tonight on 268 New York Ave. The membership voted to oppose unless they include affordable units and/or live-work units. They were not willing to make any changes. The project will be presented at the Thurs 1/10 zoning board hearing 6:30pm at City Hall. ...

Thanks so much for educating us about these proposed plans and advocating for the community, Riverview Neighborhood Association (RNA). I know its a lot of work and you do it on an all volunteer basis. I really regret that I wasn't able to attend tonight's meeting. I live adjacent to these properties, and I have two ongoing concerns: 1) an explosion of varmints in the area from constant construction. I'm terrified of what to expect from these and other new projects--the problem has gotten really bad in the last year from current construction. I know you can't stop development, but it really places and undue burden on neighbors. 2) behavior of contractors on projects such as this. With the new building Bowers and Palisade, they park illegally along the park, almost none have permits and every day there are trucks parked ON THE SIDEWALK next to the playground. If you or I tried that we'd be ticketed and towed immediately During major construction there were regularly flatbed trailers parked IN THE BUSTOP on Palisade in the morning. Even worse, when there are moonlighting cops paid to watch, they can literally do anything they want. I've now called the Police and FD twice to deal with street safety issues resulting from the reckless behavior of contractors at 487 Palisade (gut rehab), and I've never dropped a dime on someone before in my life--the last time there was a contractor ended up screaming like a banshee at the top of his lungs from the roof of that building when the Fire Department showed up. John Hanussak and RRC are great, but for ongoing issues you truly get the feeling that the fix is in for the developers/contractors or that someone is getting paid off, and that no matter what the safety concern, not a damn thing will ever be done about it. We have a mayor who is in the pocked of developers and a council member who barely responds when asked for help).
