Bill Matsikoudis for Mayor, the Future of Jersey City, NJ: Keeping you updated on the issues affecting Jersey City.

Keeping you updated on the issues affecting Jersey City.

My community-driven plan for a prosperous Jersey City

Today we release a White Paper on economic development and how we can create a more prosperous Jersey City for all of our residents.  Our plan will incentivize and promote activity that creates jobs and tax revenue for our city.  Importantly, we will involve the community at the earliest stages of development decisions and we will connect employers to people who need our jobs.

The Plan:

  • Community input at the earliest stages of development
  • Citizen oversight board for tax abatements
  • Zoning and tax incentives for commercial and light industrial development
  • Mandatory first floor retail in certain buildings
  • Explore commercial rent control and fines for vacant land and storefronts
  • For the first time, a city-wide inventory of all open jobs in Jersey City
  • More vocational-technical training and apprenticeships
  • Tailor-made job training that trains citizens in useful skills for available jobs
  • Implement the Croson Study to ensure that minority owned businesses are fully participating in the commerce of our city
