Mayor Fulop, Assemblyman Mukherji and JCHA announce the addition of new public housing in Jersey City for the first time in 40 years

Acquisition will convert the Bergen-Lafayette building into affordable 100% JCHA units

Increasing affordability through latest efforts to add quality affordable housing opportunities for low-income residents

JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven M. Fulop joined MP Raj Mukherji, the Jersey City Housing Authority (JCHA), and the Community Development Division (DCD) to announce the acquisition of a 40-unit building on MLK Drive that will be converted into 100% affordable JCHA units. The acquisition creates 30 new social housing units and also preserves 10 additional affordable units that are about to expire. Despite the nationwide public housing shortage, Jersey City is adding a new property to the municipal public housing inventory for the first time since 1983.

Located in the heart of the city’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood at 450 Martin Luther King Drive, Jersey City’s newest public housing building dramatically expands affordable housing options for families most in need with government-subsidized public housing federal government that will reduce their rents based on income (no more than 30 percent). The resolution for an allocation of $215,000 from the DCD-managed Affordable Housing Trust Fund to support the JCHA acquisition was passed unanimously by City Council this month.

“This acquisition will have a significant positive impact on the property, helping countless residents for decades to come,” said Mayor Fulop. “To start, we are creating 30 additional affordable social housing units to provide to our low-income families. Second, it will increase residents’ access to community services. Third, it will improve site-wide operations. Finally, it will reduce the amount of rent that social housing tenants have to pay so that they can live in a quality home that they otherwise could not afford for their families.

This latest announcement builds on several major policy changes Mayor Fulop has implemented over the past year to increase affordable housing opportunities for residents in need. Just three months ago, the affordable housing overlay was created to build on the inclusive zoning ordinance, to encourage and develop affordable housing throughout the city.

The Fulop administration’s strict rent control laws, decontrol of vacant units, strong databases of affordable units, and critical inclusionary zoning laws are all part of a larger solution to ensure the affordability and quality of life for all residents, regardless of income.

Additionally, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor Fulop and JCHA announced a multidisciplinary approach that is reimagining public housing to include affordable homeownership opportunities while preserving public housing, becoming a regional model of what innovative public housing initiatives can achieve. .

Located in the heart of the city’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood at 450 Martin Luther King Drive, the acquisition of Webb Apartments demonstrates the Fulop administration’s unwavering commitment to improving affordability and prioritizing residents’ needs.

“Housing is a human right. Leveraging federal dollars through this expansion of the city’s public housing stock and permanently dedicating these affordable units is another example of the Fulop administration’s commitment to ending homelessness in Jersey City. “, said State Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, who served as JCHA President for 14 years. “As our city continues to grow, the need for affordable housing options for our families will also increase.

“Together, JCHA and the city have found a way to create new public housing, which will keep Webb affordable in perpetuity with investment from the Affordable Housing Trust Fund and JCHA using its authority under the Faircloth Amendment to convert units. The exciting news here is that we are adding more social housing for the first time in several decades, which is particularly critical in the context of the growing need for quality and affordable housing as families across the country struggle to overcome hardship. unprecedented economies,” said Vivian Brady-Phillips, JCHA Director.

The mid-rise apartment building contains 1-3 bedroom apartments and substantial community space with a separate entrance from Oak Street. Additionally, the street level features 6,200 square feet of retail space with separate storefront entrances along MLK Drive.

To fully acquire the building and convert the units into additional public housing, JCHA is partnering with Jersey City’s Division of Community Development (DCD), which will allocate $215,000 in affordable housing trust funds to convert 30 of the 40 units in federally subsidized public housing. housing and maintain their affordability in perpetuity. The remaining 10 units, which were subsidized with federal HOME funds during construction, will be converted to public housing at the end of the HOME compliance period. This preserves affordable units rather than becoming eligible at the market rate. The city and JCHA expect the NJ Home Mortgage Finance Agency and HUD to approve the acquisition and conversion in the coming weeks.

“DCD has agreed to provide the financing necessary to make this dream a reality for the community by providing 5% of the project cost to acquire the property. We hope that decision makers from other entities will see our commitment to collaborate so that they too can achieve similar results, improving the quality of life for all residents of our region,” added Deja Anderson, director of the DCD.

PEAPACK-GLADSTONE — The developer of the Natirar estate will be the first in New Jersey to benefit from a government-guaranteed bond to make green improvements to the estate’s historic buildings that once served as the residence of the King of Morocco.

The $26 million bond, the first under the state’s new Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program in agreement with the Somerset County Improvement Authority, will fund upgrades to the Natirar Resort, which will include the newly renovated Ninety Acres restaurant, a 66-room luxury hotel, a 12,000-foot luxury spa, fitness and wellness center, and residences.

The resort is situated on 90 acres leased from Somerset County in 2003 and is connected to the county’s 404-acre Natirar Park which runs along the North Fork of the Raritan River.

Maloney takes on Lawler in New York’s newly drawn 17th congressional district

01:27

New York has an unusually high number of competitive races in Congress this year.

In the 17th arrondissement, Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney faces Republican Mike Lawler. As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reports, this is a key race as Republicans across the country hope to take control of the House.

The breeze was brisk and turnout was steady as voters in the newly drawn 17th congressional district make their choices.

Maloney and her husband, Randy Florke, voted near their home in Putnam County. The congressman said he anticipated a quiet election day.

“I like to hike in the woods sometimes, clear my head, and again, I think election day is a day to respect voters. We had our chance to make our case; now , it’s up to them,” Maloney said.

He added that he planned to spend time thanking campaign volunteers.

01:24

Maloney hasn’t been in a close race since 2014, when he won by 3,000 votes. The redistricting means his district now includes many Rockland County residents he never represented.

His campaign will be watching closely for returns from Peekskill, a Democratic stronghold in north Westchester, and Hasidic communities in Rockland, where Maloney has won the endorsement of influential rabbis.

Democratic insiders are cautiously optimistic but realistic — this race is considered a draw.

Because Maloney is leading the Democrats’ effort to keep Congress, Republicans would take great pleasure in eliminating him.

Maloney has emphasized election integrity, abortion rights and gun control during the campaign while saying Democrats’ efforts to dampen inflation are starting to work.

It wasn’t just the redistricting that made it a close race. House Republicans have helped funnel more than $8 million into the district, money largely spent on political ads.

As CBS2’s Kevin Rincon reports, Lawler voted in Pearl River with his wife, Doina, and planned a last-minute campaign day.

“I’m going to drive around the neighborhood. We have a truck with signs and we go around the barn in the neighborhood and try to get people to vote,” he said.

Throughout his campaign, he has focused on economic issues — things like inflation and taxes — and he campaigned against crime, calling for a change in bail reform laws in the United States. State.

He says his team has had a high turnout, which he hopes will help him, and if he wins, it would be the first time in 42 years that a Republican has beaten the president of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Voters are no doubt eager for the race to end after both sides spent nearly $20 million on a barrage of attack ads.

Because a judge gave the okay to count most mail-in ballots on Tuesday night, instead of waiting until Wednesday, both campaigns expect to know the winner before the evening is over.

Comment

PENNINGTON, NJ — With one minute left on Suzanne Horsley’s timer, the atmosphere remained thick with carbon dioxide, despite her third-grade students’ efforts to clear the air.

Horsley, a wellness teacher at Toll Gate Grammar School in Pennington, NJ, had children toss balls of yarn representing carbon dioxide molecules to their peers stationed on plastic disks representing forests. The game’s first round was set in the 1700s, and the students had cleared the playing field in less than four minutes. But this third round has taken place today, after the advent of cars, factories, electricity and massive deforestation. With fewer forests to catch balls in and longer distances to throw, toxins were building up faster than kids could pick them up.

“It was tough,” Horsley said after the end of the round. “In this period compared to the 1700s, it’s much more difficult, isn’t it?”

“Yeah,” the students respond.

“In 2022 we had a lot of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,” Horsley said. “What’s wrong with that, what does it cause?”

“Global warming”, volunteered a girl.

Two years ago, New Jersey became the first state in the country to adopt learning standards require teachers to inform children about climate change at all levels and in all subjects. The standards, which came into effect this fall, introduce students from kindergarten age to the subject, not only in science classes, but also in the arts, world languages, social studies and education. physical. Proponents say education is needed to prepare younger generations for a world – and a job market – increasingly reshaped by climate change.

Climate change forces schools to close early for ‘heat days’

“There’s no way we can expect our kids to have the solutions and the innovations to these challenges if we don’t give them the tools and resources they need here and now,” said Tammy Murphy, the wife of New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) and a founding member of former Vice President Al Gore’s Climate Reality Action Fund, which lobbied for the standards to be enforced in schools. Just as students need to be able to add and subtract before they learn numeracy, she says, children need to understand the basics of climate change – the vocabulary, the logic behind it – before they can tackling the climate crisis.

Historically, climate change has not been taught comprehensively in American schools, largely due to the partisanship surrounding climate change and many teachers. limited scope Sciences. That started to change in 2013, with the release of new national science standardswhich asked science teachers to introduce students to climate change and its human causes from college. again, only 20 states adopted the standards. Other states may not mention the human causes of the crisis, and a few even promote lies about it, according to a 2020 study report from the National Center for Science Education and the Texas Freedom Network Education Fund.

Even in New Jersey, many teachers said they lacked confidence in their knowledge of the subject in a 2021 investigation. The state has set aside $5 million for lesson plans and professional development, and he enlists teachers like Horsley, who has a master’s degree in outdoor education and is passionate about the environment, to develop model lessons.

So far, demands for climate education have not been pushed back much by climate deniers. The conservatives have led their attacks rather about the state’s new sex education standards. But state officials anticipate some criticism as classes begin to roll out in classrooms.

Advocates are trying to ensure teachers have plenty of examples to teach standards in an age-appropriate way, with racial and environmental justice as one of the key features instruction.

“It’s not like we’re asking kindergartners to look at the Keeling curve,” said Lauren Madden, an education professor at the College of New Jersey, who prepared a report on the standards, referring to a graph showing the daily concentrations of carbon dioxide.

Children live with climate catastrophe. That doesn’t mean they believe it.

On a recent weekday, Cari Gallagher, a third-grade teacher at Lawrenceville Elementary School in central New Jersey, was reading to her students “No Sand in the House!” which tells the story of a grandfather whose Jersey Shore home is devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Later, students sat down to write about what they had heard, making connections between the book and their own lives, world events, or other books they had read. Then, as part of a group activity, they built structures – carports, walls and other barriers made of Legos, blocks, Play-Doh and straws – that could protect against the calamities due to climate change.

Research suggests that education has an impact on how people understand climate change and their willingness to take action to stop it. A study found that students who took a course on reducing their carbon footprint tended to adopt environmentally friendly practices and stick to them for many years. Another one found that educating middle school students about climate change has led their parents to express greater concern about the problem.

“Education is definitely one way we might have been able to slow down to where we are now in terms of the climate crisis,” said Margaret Wang, co-founder and COO of SubjectAuClimate, a nonprofit that helps teachers find and share climate lessons. After works related to climate change are already opening up, Wang said, and children will need skills not only to discover scientific innovations, but also to tell stories, advocate, inspire and shape public policy.

A pressing concern in New Jersey is that lessons are going unevenly across the state. Schools in affluent towns like Pennington tend to have more time and resources to introduce new instruction; schools in the poorest communities that are often the most vulnerable to climate disasters, such as Camdenmay lack the resources to do so.

“I am happy to see New Jersey as a pioneer in climate change standards,” said Maria Santiago-Valentin, co-founder of the Atlantic Climate Justice Alliance, a group that works to mitigate the disproportionate damage of climate change on people. marginalized communities. But, she said, standards will need to be revised if they don’t emphasize enough the unequal impact of climate change on black and Hispanic communities or if they don’t ensure that students in these groups receive instruction.

How extreme weather created a disaster for school infrastructure

At Toll Gate Elementary, Horsley, the welfare teacher, was about to hand the third year students over to their teacher. Before returning to the school, a beautiful brick building that was flooded last year for Hurricane Idastudents reflected on the lesson.

Ayla, a third-grade student in jeans and tie-dye trainers, said it made her want to ‘do something’ about climate change because ‘I don’t want it to be that hot “.

Wes, another third grader, said adults could have done more to protect the environment. “I think they did an average job because they’re still producing a lot of carbon dioxide and a lot of people are still throwing trash.”

“I feel bad for the other animals because they don’t know, so they don’t know what to do,” added his classmate, Hunter.

Abby, who wore a ‘Girl Power’ t-shirt, said it was up to humans to drive less and recycle and protect other species from climate disaster.

“When I first found out that we were going to learn about climate change in the gym, I was like, it’s surprising, because normally we learn this in class,” Abby added. “But I’m glad we made it to the gym,” she continued. “It was really fun.”

The omicron sublines named BQ.1 and BQ.1.1 continued to spread in the United States during the week of October 29, accounting for 27.1% of new cases nationwide, according to Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The two accounted for 42.5% of all cases in the New York area, which includes New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, down from 37% the previous week. That was more than the BA.5 omicron subvariant, which accounted for 35.7% of new cases in the New York area over the past week.

The BA.5 omicron subvariant accounted for 49.6% of all cases in the United States, according to the data.

BQ.1 and BQ.1.1 were included in the BA.5 variant data just three weeks ago because their numbers were too small to break out. BQ.1 was first identified by researchers in early September and has been found in the UK and Germany, among other places.

Last week, the World Health Organization said that BQ.1 and another subline called XBB do not appear to have immune escape mutations that warrant designation as variants of concern. However, BA.5 is still a worrying variant that is being watched closelysaid a statement from the WHO Technical Advisory Group on the evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tracker shows that 226.9 million people living in the United States, or 68.4% of the total population, are fully immunized, meaning they have received their first shots.

So far, only 22.8 million Americans have had the updated COVID booster that targets the original virus and omicron variants, or 7.3% of the overall population.

In its recent earnings report with a deadline in Hoboken, the company explained recent cost reductions that went beyond the closure of Vie.gg.

EEG CEO Grant Johnson Told NJGamblingSites today:

[Regarding] NJ…esports has been categorized [the] same as sports. So the skin [costs] seven figures a year, which is good [sic] too much for esports in its current stage of evolving verticality.

If the market hadn’t turned so drastically, we planned to raise capital and then add a bookie. But by the time we were approved, it was clear the world had changed.

We are restructuring to last until more stable markets. [And] currently, New Jersey, Spain and the UK are all jurisdictions in which we do not have the capital required to remain active. So we reduce our consumption and put money back in the bank.

We live in stressful times and companies have to make difficult decisions. This falls into the difficult but necessary category.
