January 2013 VVPA Newsletter

13 Jan 2013, Posted by admin in Meeting Agendas, News You Can Use

Meeting Agenda:


Ever since Hurricane Sandy,  access to and from Liberty State Park to Downtown JC has been affected by the destruction of the footbridge at the end of Jersey Avenue.  Recently, a group of concerned neighborhood activists and some city officials have been discussing how best to expedite the reconstruction of a bridge.  A representative from the group will be on hand to let us know what if anything has been happening….please join us, your input and ideas are valuable as we try and rectify the situation.


Representatives from Jersey City Medical Center will be on hand to discuss the exciting changes happening at the Hospital and at their newest annex, The Jersey City Museum. They are interested in community input to better serve the Downtown neighborhoods.  Two Topics to be covered will be their new Medical concierge service and Skip the Wait–an online service that will help you “skip the wait” if you are ever in need of their Emergency Room.
