For years we have put great effort into partnering with the City of Jersey City to rehabilitate Reservoir #3 into a public green space. As you may already be aware, the City is entering Phase 1 of these changes to the site. While we are ecstatic to see movement, the City is looking to move forward with plans with minimal involvement from the JCRPA, and even less opportunity for public comment. We are calling for a public meeting to share what we have learned thus far and receive feedback from community members in order to determine how to proceed. The agenda for this virtual meeting is as follows:
Communication & project management
Plans for Phase I
Perimeter fence construction
Pedestrian trail construction
Screen House restoration
Department of Environmental Protection regulations
Possibility of renaming Jersey City Reservoir #3
View the current plans on the City's Open Data resource
This meeting will occur via Google Meet on Sunday, 9/6 at 4pm ET. Please contact us if you cannot make the meeting but have feedback- we understand this is a grossly inconvenient time but the plans are going to City Council on Thursday. Thank you for understanding.
