    On Tuesday July 23, 2019 at 5:30 PM, the City Planning Board will be presented with what is one of many development plans for the area lying north of Hamilton Park between 10th Street and Hoboken (Soho Lofts, Acme, Home Depot etc).   Already, there are more than 4000 additional units that have been approved/built just for this area, and yet, there are NO PLANS for a PUBLIC SCHOOL, GREENSPACE, LIBRARY and PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.   And in total, approximately 8,100 units can ultimately be built here!  Specifically, in one version of a development that would be allowed in this area, the developer is asking to build an enormous high rise with potentially more than 900 units and .5 parking. Where will those families send their children to school, where will those children play and learn, and where on earth will they park their cars?  

    While we agree with City Council that there must be affordable housing in the Jersey Avenue Light Rail Redevelopment Plan, we also believe that the City should include planning for these basic infrastructure necessities as well.  The density that can be built in this area requires that the City build a school/park/library.  As such, the proposed amendments to the Jersey Avenue Light Rail Redevelopment Plan are inadequate.

    Join us at City Hall, City Council Chambers, Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 5:30 PM to voice our objection to continued development without the provision of these basic civic necessities.  In addition to showing up, write an email to our City leaders.  If you cannot join in person, please write an email to Councilman James Solomon, Councilwoman at Large, Joyce Watterman, City Council President Rolanda Lavarro, Councilman at Large, Daniel Rivera and Mayor Steve Fulop and tell them that you oppose further development downtown until schools, parks and public transportation are planned for and set in stone.

    Current Proposed Amendment to the Jersey Avenue Light Rail Redevelopment Plan - Going before the Planning Board Tuesday for their recommendation.  HPNA agrees with the affordable housing provision, but the Amendment is incomplete as it does not address the need for additional public necessities to support the proposed density.

    Information on Jersey City's Bag Ordinance

    Jersey City will enforce a city-wide ban on single-use plastic carry-out bags. STARTING JUNE 28, 2019

    What bags are banned?

    The Jersey City ban will apply to all single-use plastic carry-out bags less than 2.25 mils thick, including “biodegradable” and “compostable” plastic bags. The ban also applies to non-recyclable paper bags.

    What bags are allowed?

    The ban will not apply to the following bags:

    • Heavier-weight plastic bags that can be reused and cleaned multiple times
    • Paper bags that are 100% recyclable and contain at least 40% post-consumer recycled content
    • Newspaper bags
    • Laundry/dry cleaning bags
    • Bags used to wrap frozen food, meat, vegetables, and bulk items
    • Bags sold in packages intended for use as garbage, pet waste, or yard waste bags
    • Bags provided by pharmacists to carry prescription drugs

    Why are plastic bags a problem?

    • We typically use plastic bags for less than 15 minutes before they are discarded. The average American household uses 1,500 bags every year.
    • Plastic bags are difficult to recycle because of their shape and the type of plastic used, so they end up in our landfills, waterways, and neighborhoods.
    • Plastics in our oceans are nearly impossible to remove and leads to the death of thousands of marine animals.
    • In landfills, depending on conditions, plastics can take 100,000+ years to break down.
